The Lord Is My Shepherd

Posted on Updated on

This psalm is probably the best known passage of the Old Testament. It is a testimony by David to the God’s faithfulness throughout his life. This psalm serves as a reminder to our kids that God watches over us and takes care of us.

“1 The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters. 3 He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. 4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You have anointed my head with oil; My cup overflows. 6 Surely goodness and loving kindness will follow me all the days of my life, And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” Psalm 23

Goliath BullsEye Target

Posted on Updated on

David and Goliath is the story of a young boy named David who wins a battle against a giant named Goliath through the power and dependence on God. Goliath is very intimidating and none of the Israeli trained soldiers dare to challenge him. Yet with God’s help David is able to take him on armed only with a slingshot and stone, without even wearing any armor to protect him. This game helps illustrate this famous story and can help teach children to allow God to fight their battles for them and to have faith in the strength of God, even against great odds.

Goliaths Bullseye Target

You can use a variety of items when you play this game to try and land them on the target. A few ideas: small/aquarium sized stones, gray clay dried out to resemble stones, small bean bags, crumpled pieces of gray construction paper. If you  laminate the target you can flick dimes as if you were playing shuffleboard.  And for your older kids, if you trust them enough :), you can enlarge it and pin it behind a cork board. They can then try to hit the target using darts.

Instructions

  1. Print the template on cardstock. (Template)
  2. Color and cut all three pieces.
  3. Glue the target onto the face piece.
  4. Finally glue the smallest piece on top of the target piece.

Optional: Laminate the target using self laminating sheets or contact paper.
