I find that using Sunday school crafts to teach Sunday school lessons work well with all ages. This is an idea I use with my 9-11 year olds. Lead your discussion on choosing right from wrong and peer pressure while doing the craft outlined below.
Sunday School Crafts: Daniel in the Lions Den
Have the students read the story of Daniel in the Lion’s den from Daniel 6: 16-24 and Daniel 6: 26-27.
Have the students act out this story.
Make a Bible bag.
Need: Brown paper gift sacks or plain small tote bags
Let the children decorate the bags with paint. These bags can be used for the children’s Bibles. Reinforce that the bags are for their Bibles and their Bibles are to help them learn about God and believe in Him.
Talk about why it is important to do what we know is right.
Discuss why it is so hard to do the right thing sometimes. Talk about how peer pressure and the evil in this world will try to pull us away from what we know and believe to be right and true.
Then talk about ways that we can help each other do the right thing and ignore those who not living their lives the right way.
