Lions Den

In the beginning of March I talked with the kids about how March "comes in like a lion and out like a lamb". 

We talked some more about lions, the sounds they make, their sharp teeth, the ASL sign for lion, and the lions crazy hair. 

We made Paper bag lions using bags, googly eyes, scraps of orange and yellow paper, and some little arms. 

After making our lions, we sat down with them and read the story of Daniel in the lions den.  We then talked about the power of prayer and how God saved Daniel and can answer our prayers. 

Then to finish off our time together we played a version of freeze tag. You know, the game where you sit or kneel when you get caught. Well, for our version of the game, we knelt and pretended to pray every time we were close to being tagged, ie. "eaten by our lion." The kids loved it, it was great fun.
