|Wednesday:||Twelve Baskets Full|
|Bible Lesson:||Feeding the Big Crowd|
- empty ice-cream buckets (for each child)
Each child is given a plastic one gallon ice-cream bucket, which you call a
basket. There are items scattered about that represent loaves or pieces of bread and fish. The children find these items and collect the pieces of
baskets. For the fish and bread, use items that will not blow away. For the fish, you can use the sponge fish from the other day (possibly wet if it's windy).
Remind the children that the disciples collected twelve baskets full of leftover pieces, even though Jesus started with just one little boy's lunch.
