Marshmallow Madness: Lego!

Learn the Bible with Lego Marshmallow Pops! 
For in the same way that one body has so many different parts, each with different functions; we, too—the many—are different parts that form one body in the Anointed One. Each one of us is joined with one another, and we become together what we could not be alone. Romans 12:4-5 (the Voice translation)

You’ll need large marshmallows and small marshmallows, some kind of stick or toothpick to put them on, yellow melting chocolate, and -optional- food safe markers to add the famous Lego face.    20150119_180846
Hand each child 1 Lego and have them to describe it to you. Size, shape, colour. Preferably everyone has a different Lego and you can mention the differences between each. Now challenge them to create something alone with their 1 piece of Lego. Of course they can’t, and you can use that opportunity to look up the Bible Verse in Romans 12:5. We all work together to form one master creation in Jesus Christ. And just like the verse encourages us, we become together what we could not be alone. Just like there’s not m20150119_180939uch we can do with 1 Lego piece, it’s much harder for us when we aren’t connected.
There are 2 ways Lego connect: on the top and on the bottom. If we want to be part of God’s amazing plan for our lives we need to do both! First, we must stay connected to God. We must make sure we are getting our strength from above. How can we do that? Examples could include reading the Bible, praying, going to church and Sunday school, singing songs to the Lord.
Second, we need to connect to other people around us. We can work with them and create a beautiful masterpiece. God has a plan to use a whole bunch of us to do something AMAZING! Let’s remember to stay connected this week.

To make th20150119_184319e Lego Marshmallow pops: poke a large marshmallow with a popsicle stick or toothpick. Cut a small marshmallow in half and stick it on top of the large marshmallow. Melt some yellow melting chocolate in the microwave for one minute (Bulk Barn has it) or white icing with yellow food coloring, and dip the marshmallow. After it has set (if you want) write on faces with a food marker. Enjoy!

Finish off with a quick family prayer. God cares about every area of our lives; let’s encourage the children to pray about whatever is on their hearts. Add to your prayer journal weekly, and be sure to leave space to jot down a quick note when God answers the prayer. Your kids will grow stronger in their faith when they can look back and see what the Lord has done.How did this work for you? Did you adapt it to fit your family?
