This Week's MOPPETS

BOZ Treehouse Time! encourages young children to discover God’s world through play-based, faith-focused activities. The interactive learning experiences will help children know and love God.

BOZ TREEHOUSE TIME! October Topic: ‘What If?’ Week 2

Lesson Overview: Just for you!
This week we will continue to discussing the gift of imagination by talking about our shadows. Unless the weather is especially lovely so the children can go outside we will be going to the Surge Room for active jumping to music and playing with flashlights.

  • Memory Verse: God created everything. (1 Corinthians 8:6)
  • Biblical Concept: We are made in the image and likeness of God, the Creator.
  • Concept in Action: I can be creative
  • Snack: (October 22nd) Homemade Cinnamon Chex mix with candy corn (see poem below). (Chex Cereal for Cruisers)

You might like to say this poem with your child in honor of the season

Candy Corn!
White is for the sins that Jesus washed away,
Orange is for the new hope the Lord gives each day.
Yellow is for His wisdom and words so sweet,
All wrapped up in this candy corn treat!

And here is another one

Glowing with God’s Love (Poem)

Some people take a pumpkin (arms circled in front)
Carve mouth and eyes and nose
And put inside a flashlight (hands together, moving back and forth in front)
So that their pumpkin glows

I do not need a flashlight (shake head “no”)
Like pumpkin faces do
My glow starts deep inside me (fist on chest)
God’s love comes straight to you! (point to the other person)
