Every Hair: First read Psalm 113:5-6 and Isa. 57:15. Talk about how God is so far above us! Review some of the things you’ve learned this week about God’s greatness and power. Compare His care and watchfulness over us to our being concerned about an ant. We’re so much bigger and more powerful than the ants just as God is so much more bigger and powerful than us!
Next, read Matt. 10:29-31. Even though God is so great and powerful and amazing, yet He cares and watches over us, even knowing the number of hairs on our head. Try to count those hairs together! There’s a lot of ’em, for sure. For this week’s **Notebook page**, create a face on their square. Talk about eye color, nose shape, freckles, eyebrow thickness – anything and everything that makes your child’s face distinct. Finally, add the hair. Give your kids pieces of yarn to tape on the head of their self-portrait. After the yarn is on, count each “hair” together. Remind them that God has counted each of their hairs too!
