We began the class by having the little ones make their Camping Backpack Craftivity . Then we met together for some singing and packed some of our camping materials.
Since the frog was lost in the woods, we worked together to find his pond and took him there so that he would be more comfortable.
And, of course, we had to make sure the little guy had some yummy food to eat. So we gathered up some flies from the pond and placed them on his lilypad for later.
After the frog was all taken care of, we headed to our campsite. We decided to check on him later. But first, it was time for some s’mores!
While we were circled around the fire I read the story of the The Good Samaritan (or similar version from a children’s Bible). And we discussed how God wants us to help our neighbors just like the Samaritan did and just like we showed love to the frog.
We prayed that God would help us to love our neighbors and show kindness to everyone and that he would help to make the frog feel better.
After our s’mores and story by the fire, we hiked back by the pond and saw that our frog was better! We were so excited to see that our frog was happy and healed.
