Today’s activity is to complete the Cereal Box Challenge. For this game, you have to pick up a cardboard box (like a cereal box) using only your mouth and nothing but your feet can touch the floor. Stand on your feet and bend/squat to pick up the box with your mouth. It will be tricky! Once you have done it, rip off a layer around the top and try again. Click here for a video demonstration of the activity.
After the activity, talk about how hard it was to pick up the box with just your mouth. You had to have a solid foundation with your feet planted firmly on the ground and even then it was hard. We can’t be righteous on our own. We need God’s help. Take a moment to pray together. Ask God to help you be righteous, to help you make the right choices in life, and to support you in areas that you struggle.
