I am a Child of God~ a Quiet Kit

Our second quiet kit is ready for a special Easter gift. I wanted this one to be more Christ-centered so that although she may not be understanding much during the talks at church, she will still be learning about Him! This will be the quiet kit we will save especially for Sunday whereas the other ones will be used more as learning kits at home. I have done some research online and found some additional activities to add on. And I am sure that as time goes on I will add more, so plan on at least one update post!


When you see the scissors – that indicates an activity or a great website with ideas to download for you to make!

The Basics:
a bag just for Sunday (which I have termed the Jac Pack)
small flannel board
accordion folder to store each of the activities

I am a Child of God Kit
I am a Child of God Coloring Pages/ crayons
This set of coloring pages was designed to teach my little one a little bit about Jesus and going to church. The pages have a blocked letter font and illustrations- many coming from Amy Dott Harmer (check her clipart out on pccrafter.com- it is adorable!)

Here is a pdf of some of the pages (without the copyrighted clipart) that you can add to your quiet kit or simply have your little one color!

Books
I created a book to the song I am a Child of God by Naomi Randall. I love that song- it teaches such an important and beautiful lesson that we are children of a loving Heavenly Father! I went and bought Greg Olsen‘s book I am a Child of God- it is such a beautifully written and illustrated book. I am also planning on rotating through her other church books, so every week its not always the same.

Here is the pdf of the I am a child of God book for you to make for your little ones!

Felt Stories
I wanted this felt activity to be based on the FAMILY, so I printed some of Amy Dott Harmer’s stick people: mom, dad, babies, sister, brother, grandma, grandpa, and a home. This is open ended felt play where she can play with the family interacting with each other.

I also printed Amy’s clipart explaining Heavenly Father’s plan that will be great for Family Home Evening lessons. I found this felt Noah’s Ark story and originally had it in my animals kit but I have moved it here.
And check out this website for several scripture stories with images ready to print to use on your felt board! You can print them off in black and white for the little ones to color as well!! Or attach a magnet for a fridge activity!
I have been staying up late researching some fabulous sites with great ideas and came across a few- unfortunately I don’t remember where I found some of these activities!! I just got “download” happy in the late hours of the night! So if I am posting about one of your ideas, please let me know where I found it so I can give you proper credit.


Remember Jesus Wheel– this is a great way to remember Jesus and different aspects of his ministry. It’s fun for the little ones to spin, too! Just color the pages, cut out the circles, and attach with a brad.

Sacrament Book – let’s face it, I love books! This is a cute little book I found online somewhere that the kiddos can put together and color, and then read to remember Jesus.

Sacrament Manners Match Game– print of two sets of these cards from churchbabies.blogspot.com and you have a little memory game about what is appropriate during sacrament meeting.

Sacrament Tray and Pictures of Jesus– this adorable activity that I found at sugardoodle.net (this week’s Wednesday website) is a great way to connect the sacrament with the life of Jesus Christ.

Additional Activities to purchase:

And of course, Treats
Treats are what keeps us going… feeling spiritually full doesn’t always mean our tummies are that way, too! Especially if you happen to have church right during lunch!!

This is just a list to start with… I would go through it and see what would work for you and sift it to about 5 activities. Keep the end in mind that we want our children to be able to sit through a talk eventually and too much entertaining might delay that behavior. I will post pics after I am finished putting it all together!
Enjoy!! 🙂
Happy Teaching!

    That is a great idea. I have been looking for new ideas to keep my two young daughters quiet and busy during church. Your ideas are great and I am looking forward to looking at your site for more great ideas.

    Thanks so much. You have just saved my Sunday. I sit with my 4 children, ages 10, 7, 4, & 1 by myself. I want them to focus more on Christ during the sacrament. I think using these resources will help that. Happy Sabbath to you!
