...God Hunt Journals

Something a little different this week. These journals work well as a craft, but we'll be using them in our small groups. Let me describe what we're doing.

Our lesson this week is the story of Breakfast on the Beach. Jesus surprises His disciples by appearing to them and making them breakfast. We're talking about how we can see God at work in everyday, and sometimes surprising, situations...we just have to be on the lookout. This kind of "I Spy" comes from a book called The God Hunt.

To help kids remember all the amazing things (little and big) that God does for us, we're making these journals. They are blank books that the kids can add cut-out prompts to the pages, then write down the things they see God doing each day.

Prep for this project:
Print out God Hunt Journal Covers
Print out God Hunt Journal Prompts
Trim covers to 5.5" x 8.5"
Trim additional paper to 5.5" x 8.5" for pages

You'll also need:
Glue Sticks

You can pre-assemble the blank books (as we did) or have the kids fold and staple the pages and cover themselves. Either way, as you are working on these, talk about the amazing ways and places that God shows up each day in our lives!
