Wow, what reassuring words for both children and adults alike. I usually use the NIV version for verses, but came across this CEV one and just really liked the translation.
God cared for us, planned for us, and knew everything about us while we were in the womb. Before we were born, He held us and loved us.
I think kids will like this craft because it gives a great visual of them actually in God’s hands. He is so much larger than we can imagine and he has room there for each one of us. That is awesome news!
- one hand paper per child and one circle per child (so print separately) Isaiah 44 2a
- glue sticks or tape
- something to cover the table with
Have the children color the hands and then draw themselves in the circle. Then, glue the circle onto the hands.
It’s always neat to see how the kids see themselves in their self portraits. Have fun!
