Week #7 Character Development – Obedience, Day #46

Obedience
“Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it.” – Luke 11:28
 Today we had a lot of fun talking about warning signs.  I adapted this activity from Children’s Sunday School Activities.  It is the place where I got the printable for the signs as well.  I decided to put my signs on Popsicle sticks.  

I held up warning signs as we went through each activity.  They were first suppose to obey and see how things went smoothly and then disobey the signs to see how the results were negative.
This first activity was for the curvy road sign.  When they ignored the sign, the road we worked so hard to build had been destroyed.
For our stop and yield signs, we had an accident when we didn’t obey the warnings.
For the hazard, poison, and keep out of the reach of children signs, we had people rushed to the hospital because people they didn’t obey the warning signs.
For the railroad crossing, they got mauled by the train (me tackling and tickling) when they didn’t pay attention to the warning sign.
We ended this fun activity talking about how when you obey, things go better.  Disobeying only causes hurt and pain.  We related this to both why we would obey God and your parents.

  3. Really cool. My almost three year old needs some help in the obedience department. This is a fun way to help him along!

  4. Great ideas! Bet they didn’t even know they were learning.

  5. This is an awesome idea! I will have to try this with my boys! Thanks for sharing!

  7. oh, I love those little signs! I’ve been in the process of trying to find things for my 2nd grader (yes, he’s a boy and always in trouble!) so that the teacher does not have to continuously call him down. We had made stop sign cards for her just to put on his desk, but these little signs are great, too! Thanks for the idea…I’m from the Mommy Club hop.

    • Cool. Thanks so much for stopping by. I’m doing a whole series on character development, so I hope you’ll be back. Training these little ones is tough work.

  8. What a great lesson; I love the way you taught it! Very creative.

  9. LOVE this!! What a wonderfully, creaive idea!

  12. Just found your blog today looking for stick figure puppets. This is such a good idea — 365 days of being intentional. I will be back!!!! I love it!!
