Bible Medicine For Times of Trouble


Today's Snack: Give each child an individual sack of M&M's for this activity, and don't be too concerned if they don't ALL wind up in the pill bottle! You can set out a bowl of freshly-washed, cold apples, too, since a really good medicine is "an apple a day keeps the doctor away."





Print out this list of Bible verses | scissors

Empty pill bottle for each child | Blank address label | markers

Single-serving sack of M&M's for each child



Whenever you have trouble, you are never lost and alone. There's always the Bible to give you strength, consolation and healing!


To show kids this truth, give each student an empty pill bottle and a blank address label. They can write their name and put "Bible Medicine."


Then, read these Bible verses aloud to the group. Suggest that each child choose one as they listen. Later, they will receive that verse to roll up and put in their bottle of Bible Medicine!


After you read each verse, each child can drop an M&M into their bottle - to eat later, when they need that "medicine."


When you have read all of these verses aloud to the group, let each child select one verse. Cut it out with the scissors, and let the child roll it up tightly and drop into their medicine bottle. They can drop all their other M&M's in there, too, to take home.
