We can’t perform a miracle like Jesus did, but we can certainly do our part to help feed the hungry. What have you done in the past to help feed the hungry? What could you commit to doing in the future? Your acts of love are important, no matter how big or small.
Make Superhero Cuffs Jesus is the ultimate superhero, saving the day with compassion. Using the materials in the craft kit or materials from home (toilet paper tubes, paper, stickers, buttons, scissors, glue), create your own superhero cuffs.
- Act out the story with Goldfish crackers or another snack.
Bless Each Other
Pass a snack to each other and say “Thank you God for giving us food!”
