Way, Truth, Life Buttons: A Fun Bible School Activity for Your Preschoolers

February 25, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 162

Along with John 3:16, John 14:6 is one of the most beloved Scriptures in the Bible. It says this: "I am the way, the truth and the life. No man comes to the Father except through me." I personally love this verse because of all it teaches us about God. I need to know that Jesus is the way for me to follow. This life is full of twists and turns and I can rely on Him to direct m life. I need to know that Jesus is the truth in a world that is filled with lies. And I need to know that Jesus is the life within me, both now and eternally. It's really not too early to introduce this great Bible verse to your preschoolers and a fun way to do this is with the following Bible school activity called "Way, Truth, Life Buttons."

Here's what you do:

For this activity you will need to prepare 4 "buttons" each showcasing the words "way", "truth" and "life". I made my " buttons" from the tops and bottoms of frozen juice cans. I then went onto my computer and made up nice colorful labels and secured them to the circles. Next, hide 9 of the buttons in a basket or box filled with cotton balls or packaging popcorn or something similar. Place the last way, truth, life buttons on display for the whole class to see. You are now ready to play the game.

Here's how to play:

After introducing John 14:6 to your little ones, choose a child to be the "Way, Truth, Life Button" finder. Instruct the finder to find one button each which says way, truth or life. Each button that he pulls out that is not a match may be set to the side until he finds all 3 correct buttons. After all 3 circles are found, congratulate the child, then have the whole class say, "Jesus said, 'I am the way, the truth and the life.'" Return the buttons back to the box. Continue playing the game in this way until all children have had the chance to be the finder.

Before playing this Bible school activity, you may want to introduce the lesson in the following way:

Today's Bible verse says this: "I am the way, the truth and the life." Jesus is the way. (Hold up the "way" button.) He is the way to Heaven and shows us which way to go in life. Jesus is the truth. (Hold up the "truth" button.) Jesus never lies. He always tells us the truth and He wants you to know the truth such as how much He loves you. Jesus is also life. (Hold up the "life" button.) Every breath you take comes from God. And if you love Jesus, you will get to live with Him forever and ever. Let's play a fun game to help us remember that Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. It's called, "Way, Truth, Life Buttons."
