Use crayons/markers and paper to create placemats. Help them to write “What God gives us” on the placemat. Clear contact paper can be used to preserve the placemat.
This week we heard about God inviting everyone to a huge feast. For the activity this week, let's pretend that we are throwing a huge feast like Jesus describes in the Gospel.
In this week’s gospel, Matthew 21:33-46, Jesus compares the Church to a vineyard. We could also compare the church to an orchard, a field of grain or even an urban, backyard garden. Let’s imagine ourselves as grapes in God’s vineyard, an apple in God’s orchard, an ear of corn in God’s field or a tomato in God’s garden. If you were to compare yourself to any other piece of fruit, a vegetable or another kind of plant or tree, what would it be? Why?
Below is an activity to do with your family to explore this week’s theme of acting in faith.
