Last year our church purchased and implemented a brand new curriculum. It is wonderful but it needs some supplementation, especially for the younger children. I am in the process of writing supplemental lessons for a unit on Solomon and needed an activity for our 4-year old class on this specific proverb. This Proverbs 22:1 Activity for preschoolers is easy and quick…two of my favorite things about Sunday school crafts! I made a free Proverbs 22:1 printable that will make it even easier!
“A good name is more desirable than great riches.” -Proverbs 22:1
1. Print out the free printable on card stock and then have each child write his/her name very large on the paper.
2. Have each child use the gold glitter glue (or puff paint) to trace his/her name.
While the children are working, talk about what it means to have a “good name”. In this context, it means having a good reputation, or what other people think about you. The only way that you can have a “good name” (reputation) is by making good decisions that others see and being honest and trustworthy.
3. Add the acrylic jewels on top of the glitter glue.
Let it dry and brainstorm ways that children can develop “a good name” through the daily decisions they make.
