Summer. Life moves slower, time is more plentiful, and the days never seem to end. Summer is the perfect time to be intentional in building faith and in building relationships while having some fun, too.
What is more fun for little kids than having to find a hidden treasure with a treasure map? Of course there has to be a treasure, too. Even a fun-filled treasure hunt can have a faith building component, too! Here’s how..
Create a treasure map of your yard and/or surrounding areas and then bury a treasure! An easy way is just to create a map that includes landmarks they can follow. Things like a swing set, mailbox, or front porch, trees, and bushes.
For the treasure it could be things like candy, some caramel corn, or maybe even a movie to watch for the night.
When you have everything ready, gather your family and set them on the course. If they need help, you can help them along the way, but hopefully it can be a fun adventure for everyone.
When you are done, grab your Bible and read Psalm 119:11, which says, “I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.”
Talk with your family about hiding God’s word if your heart and how we do that through memorizing Bible verses. A great way to do this is through the Walk in the Word posts that I share here each Monday and Thursday. These posts are designed to provide Bible verses that are easy enough to remember that even preschoolers can memorize them in most cases. Talk about how God’s word is better than any other hidden treasure you could ever find.
Close your time in prayer thanking God for minds that can hide His word in your heart. Thank Him for family fun, summer, and time to spend together today.
We are getting to the end of August. Come join us tomorrow for another faith building summer activity.
