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