Today I had the choice of teaching about Earth Day or The Good Shepard in Religion class. I decided to teach a little bit about both subjects.
So I made some Earth Day cookies for the snack. They are really simple to make. Make your favorite sugar cookie mix. Then dye half of the dough green.
Then dye the other half of the dough blue. I used gel food coloring.
Grab a piece of green dough and a piece of blue dough and roll into a ball. Bake according to your recipes directions.
Then for the craft we made The Lord is My Shepard craft. The kids loved the craft and some of the kids in the class are very artistic.
We glued all different sized pearls on the sheep.
We did some scripture readings on The Good Shepard and talked about how Jesus is the Shepard and we are his sheep.
For the take home treat - Kit Kat bars. i covered the bars in green paper and tied the charm with blue ribbon in honor of Earth day, The gold charm says "Try God."
