Family Time & Kid’s Challenge

The activities below are simple ones for you to have some fun bonding as a family whilst helping your child recap what they have learnt on Sunday! Try to space them out over the weekdays. Have fun!

Seeds of Honesty

A seed is important as it lays the foundation of a plant. In this week’s family time, let’s learn how to grow a plant, starting with the seeds. In the process, parents may talk to your kids about sowing seeds of honesty and how small lie (even white lies) may cause hurt/harm (cf to the plants where weeds (small as they be) will harm the growth of plants).

You may register with NEA to get free seed packets. The webpage also teaches you how to grow a plant.

Have fun growing (plants) together as a family!:)

AIM IT

Write each word of the memory verse on A4 pieces of paper. Place them randomly on the floor. Using a bean bag/rubber band/plastic bottle cap, aim it at the correct words in sequence of the memory verse. Record the amount of time taken to get the whole memory verse completed. Challenge each other in the family and see who does it the fastest!

HONEST POSTER

  • In your family, choose someone to be “Do Right” (preferably your child)
  •  Have “Do Right” step outside the room.
  •  After “Do Right” has left the room, decide on an action that is the right action you want “Do Right” to do—for e.g. jumping jacks. One person will be doing the right action while the rest will try to distract with different actions.
  • Call “Do Right” back into the room. 
  • Say: We want you to do the right thing. One person in the room is doing the right thing, but we can’t tell you who that person is. You have to look for the right action. We’ll tell you when you do the right thing.
  •  Give “Do Right” a few minutes to determine whose action to copy.

 Ask (Debrief): 

  • When you were “Do Right”, why was it hard to do the right thing? (I didn’t know who to follow; everyone was doing something different.) • What makes it hard to know the right thing in real life? (Different people tell you different things; I don’t know who to ask; I forgot to pray.) 
  • What are some wrong things people do? (Lie; do dangerous things even when parents tell you not to; fighting with siblings) 

• Say: Sometimes it’s hard to know the right thing to do because so many people do the wrong thing. But we can ask God to show us the right thing to do (through prayer, the Bible, Godly counsel like parents/teachers). God will always help us, and God’s ways are always right. So let’s try to do the right thing no matter what happens!

Cut out letters of the alphabet from magazines or newspapers and to form a collage of the  memory verse. The kids can do it individually or as a project with the family.

Ask someone in your family to film you writing out the Big Point “I will do right no matter what happens” while you are blindfolded. Show your writing to the camera once you have finished. To make it more challenging, you may try writing the Big Point using different colours.

Family Time & Kid’s Challenge

The activities below are simple ones for you to have some fun bonding as a family whilst helping your child recap what they have learnt on Sunday! Try to space them out over the weekdays. We have also  added a NEW Memory Verse Challenge for you to try as a family! Have fun!


Optional: Post a picture/video of what you did on social media and tag @hopekids.sg on instagram or @hopekidssg on facebook with the hashtag #HopeKidsChallenge or share with your LG through your LG chatgroup!

Ingredients: 

  • 2 cups sugar
  • ½ cup margarine or butter, cubed
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups old fashioned oats
  • Dash of salt

Instructions:

  • Before you start work with the kids, tell them that they are not allowed to eat the treats until they are completely ready (after refrigeration)
  • In a large saucepan, combine the first 5 ingredients. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook and stir 3 minutes.
  • Remove from heat; stir in peanut butter and vanilla until blended. Stir in oats. Drop mixture by tablespoonfuls onto waxed paper-lined baking paper. Refrigerate until set. Store in airtight containers.
  • As you and your child work, talk about how delicious the treats smell and how wonderful they’ll taste. Tell your child that it’s not time to eat the biscuits, but they sure are tempting!
  • Talk about how Jesus was tempted but he decided to live right before God and resisted the temptations.
  • Debrief while everyone tucks in to the treats after a few hours of refrigeration: that in life we may be faced with temptations  (c.f. The nice smelling delicious treats in front of them) but we need to have integrity and not take short cuts to satisfy ourselves (c.f. Pinching some crumbs off the treats to taste while making the treats)

Do this as a family. Come up with actions for the memory verse together. Throughout the week, randomly test each other by asking them to recite the memory verse with the actions.

Get creative! Film yourself doing  a short re-telling of the story about the temptation of Jesus in Matthew 4:1-11. You may come up with your own props and costumes to make the story more alive. You can even use finger puppets or live drama acting! If you have siblings in HopeKids, you can do it together with them!

Hey Parents! Read here first!

Through this period of uncertainty, we are praying for you and your family, and we are here to support you in leading your child to learn more about God and cultivate godly character! Each week, you can access the HopeKids Online experience which includes a fun and interactive video, printable colouring and activity pages and a conversation guide to help the children process what they are learning.

Here’s how a Stay Home Sunday could look like:

Look through the HopeKids Service Experience!
Prepare and print out the Kids Activities in the pack.
Prepare writing materials such as pencils, pens and colour pencils.

Invite your child to join in the time of praise and worship together!
After the time of worship, your child can start on the kids activities as you listen to the sermon.

HopeKids Online Service will be streamed on Church Online after the adult service ends.

After service, ask your child what he / she has learnt about God today or even share what you have personally learnt. Take some time to pray together.

We really want to encourage families to leverage this time to be together and focus on things of eternal significance. Daddy and Mummy are the best role models! When kids see how you seek, worship and learn about God on a daily basis, it inspires them to want to believe in God and do their best for God too!

We look forward to hearing stories of this precious time and memories made together with God and each other as the whole family draws closer to God together.

HopeKids Team

Simple guide on family devotion:

1) Keep it simple and short (especially for those with young children)

2) Start with Praise/worship  (use children P&W songs)

4) Pray together

Keep it flexible, be prepared to change schedule due to unforeseen circumstances; it may look different for different families
