Activity B3 - Lesson 5: Grow a Garden

Sunday Schoolhouse Series Activity - Red Unit B3
Lesson 5: Judas Betrays Jesus in the Garden (John 18:1 - 14)

Grow a Garden - Materials Needed:
- plastic cup for each child
- flower/plant seeds
- potting soil
- puff paint and stick on gems

Using the puff paint draw plant stems and leaves growing up the side of the cup, stop a couple of inches from the top of the cup. Place stick-on plastic gems a little ways above the stem, then draw petals around the gem to the top of the stem to make flowers. Use other colors to create patterns inside the petals, such as stripes or dots. The children could also add bees, butterflies, or grass. Then have each child fill their cup 3/4 full of potting soil and plant the seeds according to the directions.
For younger children cut out construction paper flowers/insects and let them glue the pieces to the cup.

Activity - Answer with a Question:
Play this trivia game like the popular television game show. You provide the answer from today's lesson and the children ask the question. For example, the answer is "Kidron Valley"; the question is, "What did Jesus cross to get to the garden?"
