Teaching the Fruits of the Spirit

Here's a cute and simple idea for teaching toddlers about the fruits of the spirit!

- Simply print pictures of different fruits and label with the different spiritual fruits. An additional activity is to make a small basket or bag to put the pictures into. A brown paper lunch bag cut in half works great! Toddlers will enjoy putting the pictures into the bag and then taking them out again. It will give you a chance to teach about the actual fruits and the fruits of the spirit!

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, good­ness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
Galatians 5:22

Older kids could practice putting the fruits in the correct order to memorize the verse.
Thanks to our church nursery staff for this cute idea!
