A mic drop experiment!
We did an exciting experiment in kids life! (For pictures and more details on how to do the experiment follow my link in the comments). At the end of the experiment when you dip a q tip in dish soap and place in the center of the food color dots it causes a really neat ripple Explosion of color through the pan. After the experiment I asked the kids what they thought about the reaction? They described the experiment with words like…. “Cool, Awesome, Neat and Amazing!!!”
I went on to remind the class that when Jesus was seen performing miracles a lot of people watched in awe. For instance, when Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead everyone stood in awe. They could not believe what they were seeing. They were amazed by the beauty in God’s work. Many thought His miracles were awesome, cool, amazing neat and so on. Guess what? Everyday Jesus is still performing miracles and doing awesome things in our life. He’s performing miracles more awesome then this experiment. I ended the lesson by asking the kids to tell me something amazing that they see God doing in their life. One little girl, our shy friend spoke up and said,
“Honestly! Everyday is like a miracle. It’s a blessing everyday to have my mom and dad with me!”
