Grape Clusters and Pretzel Rods

Monday: Snack
Elementary Bible Lesson: Two Obedient Men (Caleb and Joshua): We should trust and obey God.
Memory Verse: 1st John 2:5
Preschool Bible Lesson: Caleb and Joshua Obey: We should trust and obey God.

Key Items:
Serve clusters of grapes and large pretzel rods.

Snack Lesson:
[Point to a cluster of grapes.] What are these? [Grapes.]
Have you ever seen grapes growing? They grow on a vine, in clusters, just
like this. Then people pick them.

What's the biggest cluster of grapes you've ever seen?
Have you ever seen one so big, you couldn't carry it?

[Take a cluster of grapes, and hang it over a pretzel rod. Hold up the rod by the two ends.]
Imagine if you had to hang the cluster over a pole so that two men could carry it. Like this.

In the Bible lesson today, we're going to learn about a time when some people picked a cluster of grapes so large, they had to do just that. That's a lot of grapes!

Additional Snack Items:

To make the snack more substantial, we served cookies alongside the grapes and pretzel rods.
We also provided Kool-Aid to drink.
