Object Lesson: Balancing Birds
Balancing Birds are fun toys because they are designed to balance easily on just about any surface.
Demonstrate to your kids how easy it is to balance the bird, then let them try it. (How crazy of a place can you find to balance it?!)
Then, Make a Connection:
Psalm 91:4 compares our relationship with God to that of a bird and its babies. Just as a bird protects her babies by covering them with her wings, God promises to protect us as well.
"He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler." -Psalm 91:4 (KJV)
Encourage your kids to think of this verse every time they see a balancing bird!
