Bible Activity: Managing Behaviors & People
(Teacher words in bold.)
Especially in school, we can be faced with so many behaviors at once that we don’t know how to respond. Can feel a bit awkward, like we do when we’re trying to juggle. Let’s try some juggling.
Give each child either three foil balls or three pair of rolled up socks. Show them how you
– toss one ball up with the left hand
– toss a second ball from the right to the left hand
– catch the ball in the air with the right hand.
Give them ten minutes or so to try to learn to juggle. Some may succeed but others will get little more than a laugh about it.
While juggling is fun, it’s not always the best way to handle our many challenges. The best way“¦ Have a kid throw you his balls one at a time; you catch them. “¦is to give your problems to the Lord, one at a time. And that’s something you can do anytime, anywhere, and then you don’t have to worry about them anymore.
