Key Item: Cutout Cookies
Serve homemade cutout cookies in the shape of crosses (frosted red or brown) and sheep (frosted white, optionally with black detail, e.g. hooves and an eye). Explain that today's Bible lesson is about a time when a sheep took Isaac's place. Also, Jesus died on a cross to take our place.
[Hold up a cross cookie.] What shape is this cookie? What does this shape remind you of? That's right, Jesus died on a cross, to take our place.
[Hold up a sheep cookie.] What about this other cookie? What's this shape? Right, a sheep. Did you know that a sheep once took Isaac's place, just like Jesus took our place? We're going to learn about that in our Bible lesson tonight.
Additional Snack Items:
To make the snack more substantial, we served tacos and chips alongside the cookies. We also provided Kool-Aid to drink.
