Fun-time Friday for F-Week

1. Fingerpaint--All kids love fingerpainting, so let your little artist create a masterpiece! If you have very young children, give them edible paint to use (i.e. different colors of pudding, corn syrup with food coloring, applesauce, etc.).

2. Family--Who's in your family? Why are families important? Draw a picture of your family.

3. Flag--Paint a picture of what a flag look like to you. Use water colors. Or, try to copy a picture of a certain flag, like the American flag or a flag from one of your favorite countries (since it's F-week, paint the flags of France and Finland and learn more about the countries).

4. Follow the leader--One person is the leader; everyone else follows whatever he or she does. Take turns!

5. Farmer in the Dell--If you have a copy of the song, put it on for your children, and play the game. If not, sing it together while you play! If you only have one child, use stuffed animals for the rest of the people/animals in the song.

What To Drink: Fruit Juice, Fanta

What To Eat:

6. French Fries--Go to your favorite place and have french fries for a snack. Or, make this healthier version at home. And since it's a Friday during Lent, you could even serve them along with these.

7. Fruit--Try out a new fruit, like kiwi or mango, or make a fruit salad: Combine one can drained, crushed pineapple, two cans mandarin oranges, one cup sour cream, one cup coconut, and one package of miniature marshmallows. Stir together and chill before serving. Enjoy!

Talk about the Fruits of the Spirit and how we can use them in our daily life. Galatians 5:22 NAS
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love , joy , peace , patience , kindness , goodness , faithfulness "
