COLORING PAGE

BEFORE THE ACTIVITY
What you need: crayons, coloring pages
What you do: Place the crayons in the center of the circle and give each child a coloring page.

DURING THE ACTIVITY
What you do: Instruct children to color their coloring page. As children color, get to know them by asking what they have done today or what they are going to do.

AFTER THE ACTIVITY
What you do: Make sure children’s names are on their page. Keep the coloring pages out to use in the next Kid Connect activity: Animal Art.

ANIMAL ART

BEFORE THE ACTIVITY
What you need: coloring pages from previous activity (12), art cards (12), Quest animal game pieces (12)
What you do: Use the full set of coloring pages from the previous activity to create a three-by-four grid on the floor. Give each child a Quest animal game piece.

DURING THE ACTIVITY
What you do: Explain children will compete to build the biggest Quest animal art collection. Each round, children will choose one piece of art they would like to collect and place their Quest animal game piece on the coloring page showing that piece of art. One art card will be turned over, and any children on the coloring page showing the same piece of art will stand and compete for the piece of art. The winner of the round will keep the art card. The child with the most art cards at the end wins!

Tell children to place their Quest animal game piece on the coloring page showing a piece of art they want to collect. Once all children have placed their Quest animal game pieces on a coloring page, turn over one art card. Instruct all children whose Quest animal game pieces are on the matching coloring page to stand and complete the challenge described on the art card. Give the art card to the child who wins the challenge.
Repeat for all remaining art cards. The child with the most art cards after all art cards have been used is the winner!

FOLLOW THE PLAN

Once the whole eGroup has followed the plan, children will hear another plan, but they will have to keep trying to follow the same plan until every child has followed it correctly.
Read the first plan below and encourage children to complete the movements as directed. Watch the children carefully to make sure each child follows the instructions exactly. If any children did not complete the movements exactly as directed, repeat the plan and encourage children to try again.
Once all children have followed the plan, read the next one. Repeat until all plans have been completed.

After all children are introduced, pass out a Quest animal sticker to each child. Have each child place it next to their name tag.
What you say: “We are the (insert animal name) today! There are two very special rules to remember so we can have the most fun. The rules to follow are:
Be Safe – How can we be safe? (keeping our hands to ourselves, sitting when others are sitting, walking instead of running, following the rules)
Be Kind – How can we be kind? (listening when others are talking, sharing, obeying leaders, sitting on our bottoms so others can see)
If you can obey our special rules and are ready to have fun then put one hand in the center and repeat after me:
I am (allow response)

Wait for kids to respond.

CHILDREN AND STORYTELLER: “God has a plan for me!”

STORYTELLER: “Great job! God has a big plan for all of us and this month we’re taking a very close look at a person in the Bible named Joseph who God used to do big things! We’ll see that God had a plan for Joseph, just like He’s got a plan for us, and that’s something we can all celebrate together. Friends, let’s all stand to our feet and sing, ‘Plan for Me!’”

STORYTELLER: “That’s right! God’s got a plan for us and the Bible says that God’s plan’s are forever so it doesn’t matter how old we get, where we go, or what we’ve done. God will always find a way to bring us back into His plan. Let’s take a look at what the Bible says. I’ll say the Bible verse once, then I’ll have you say it AS LOUD AS YOU CAN! Listen carefully:

Motion eGroup Week of May 26

Up In The Air

Virtue: Honesty: Choosing to be truthful in whatever you say and do.
Main Point: Lies lead to guilt; truth leads to peace.
Bible Story: Jacob and Esau
Bible Passage: Genesis 27; 32-33
Memory Verse: “The Lord detests lying lips, but He delights in men who are truthful.” Proverbs 12:22

KID CONNECT

TWO TRUTHS AND A LIE

WHAT YOU NEED: Bring It! Challenge tracking sheet (1)

WHAT YOU DO:
Start by introducing yourself and welcoming kids to your eGroup. As kids come in, write their names on the Bring It! Challenge tracking sheet.
Ask them about their week and interests. Use the following questions to generate discussion:
What’s something cool that happened this week?
What was the best part of your week?
Have you ________ (seen/eaten/listened to/read) any good _________ (movies/TV shows/food/music/books) lately?
What are you looking forward to next week?

Once you have five to six kids begin “Two Truths and a Lie.”
Tell kids three statements about yourself. Two of the statements should be true statements; the other should be a lie, but something that could plausibly be true.
Encourage kids to stand if they know which statement was a lie. Choose one of the standing kids to guess. If the kid is incorrect, choose another kid to guess. If the kid is correct, that kid gets to share his/her two truths and a lie next.
Repeat until all kids have shared their truths and lies.

BIBLE CONNECT

TRUTH OR LIE?

WHAT YOU NEED:
Bible story sheet (1), blank paper (1 sheet per kid), Truth sign (1), Lie sign (1), leader sheet (1)

WHAT YOU SAY:
“Welcome to eGroup! My name is _______ and I’m your eGroup leader! As an eGroup we will hang out together during Motion, hear stories from the Bible, learn what it means to live for Jesus, and play games!
This is the last week of Up in the Air, where we’ve been learning about honesty. Let’s dig into God’s Word together now and read about someone whose lies kept him trapped in guilt for many years.”

WHAT YOU DO:
Have kids sit in a circle with their Bibles and instruct kids to turn to Genesis 27. NOTE: This may take time, but it helps kids learn skills for reading the Bible on their own. If needed, encourage kids to use the table of contents in their Bible, and then decide if the book is in the Old or New Testament.

Read Genesis 27 and 32-33 aloud as directed on the Bible story sheet.

Divide kids into two teams and send both teams to one side of the eGroup space. Place the Truth sign and Lie sign on the floor on the opposite side of the eGroup space, about a foot apart from each other.
Give each kid one sheet of paper and encourage kids to make a paper airplane.
Explain kids will listen to a statement about the Bible story. They will try to determine if the statement is true or a lie.
One kid from each team will try to answer the question by flying their paper airplane to the appropriate sign on the other side of the eGroup space. If any part of the airplane touches any part of the correct sign, the team gets a point. If it touches the wrong sign, the team loses a point. If it doesn’t touch either sign, no points are given or taken.
Read the first statement from the leader sheet and encourage each team to send one player to answer. The player will answer by flying their paper airplane to the correct sign. Award or take points as directed.
Repeat for each remaining statement on the leader sheet.
The team with the most points at the end wins!

WHAT YOU SAY:
“As long as Jacob hid from his lies, his mind couldn’t get free from fear and guilt. Jacob couldn’t find peace until he told the truth about his lies and asked for forgiveness. Lies lead to guilt; truth leads to peace.”

YOU CONNECT

GIANT LIES

WHAT YOU NEED:
giant game board (1), game cards (12), die (1), traffic cones (4)

WHAT YOU DO:
Open the giant game board in the center of the eGroup space. Shuffle the game cards and place them by the game board.
Help kids form four even teams. Give each team a traffic cone and tell them to place it on one of the “Start” spaces on the game board.
Explain teams will roll the die to move around the game board from their “Start” space to their “Home” space.
If a game piece lands on a “DRAW CARD” space, the team on that space should take a card, read it aloud, and follow the instructions. Used cards can be set aside and reused if needed.
The first team to get their game piece to their “Home” wins!

WHAT YOU SAY:
“When we’ve made the choice to lie, our problems don’t end. If anything, they quickly start to feel worse because of the guilt that can take over our minds. Guilt causes you to feel so badly about what you’ve done that you can lose sight of the truth.
When we choose truth, we can find peace instead of guilt. Even when we don’t tell the truth right away, we can fight back against the lies and their guilt by finding a way to tell the truth. It may not be easy, but when we replace lies with truth, we can replace guilt with peace.”

Discussion Questions:
“Have you ever felt guilty about something you did wrong? What does guilt feel like to you?”
“Why do you think lying makes you feel guilty?”
“Can you think of a time when you told the truth about something you’d done wrong? How did you feel once you told the truth?”

JOURNAL AND PRAYER

WHAT YOU NEED: eKidz Prayer Journal (or eKidz Prayer Journal page), pen

WHAT YOU SAY:
“Today we learned lies lead to guilt, but truth leads to peace! When you choose to be honest, you can see God do great things through you!
We all sin, or make wrong choices, and sometimes we lie to try to cover up our sins. But the more we lie, the more our guilt will keep us trapped and unhappy. The only way to escape guilt and find peace is to choose truth!
This month, we’ve learned four rewards of truth: truth makes you strong, helps others, sets you free, and leads to peace. I want you to choose one of those rewards — the one that seems the most important to you right now. When you’re tempted to lie, you can remind yourself of that reward so you’ll be ready to choose truth!”

WHAT YOU DO:
Encourage each kid to share the reward of truth that they will remember. Write down each kid’s name in your eKidz Prayer Journal. Take your eKidz Prayer Journal home with you and pray for your kids throughout the week.

SUGGESTED PRAYER:
“God, we’ve learned the rewards of choosing truth instead of lies. Please help us remember those rewards when we start to think it might be easier or better to lie. We want to obey you and choose truth every day. We love You, God. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.”

BIBLE CONNECT

WHAT YOU NEED: Bibles, Bible tool kits, phrase cards (30), cheek retractor (1)
WHAT YOU SAY:
“Our Bible verse, Proverbs 12:22, tells us God hates it when we lie, but it makes Him truly happy when we choose to be truthful.”
WHAT YOU DO:
Read the verse out loud: “The Lord detests lying lips, but He delights in men who are truthful.” Psalm 12:22
Help kids look up the memory verse in their Bibles. Encourage them to use tools from the Bible tool kit to mark the verse in their Bible. Tell kids who didn’t bring a Bible they will receive a memory verse card during the Bring It! Challenge so they can practice it at home.
Ask kids if there are any words or phrases they don’t understand and explain them as needed.
Choose a memory verse activity: “Face Off” or “Verse Practice.”
CAN YOU UNDERSTAND THE VERSE?
Shuffle the phrase cards well.
Explain kids will listen as the eGroup Leader reads a phrase from the phrase cards while wearing a cheek retractor. Some of the phrases will be phrases from the memory verse; some phrase will be completely random.
The kids can make five guesses for each phrase the eGroup Leader reads. If the kids guess correctly in five guesses or less, they can keep the phrase card. If, after five guesses, the kids haven’t guessed correctly, the eGroup Leader keeps the card.
The eGroup Leader will compete against the kids to build the entire memory verse by collecting each phrase of the verse and placing them on the ground in order. (There are two cards for each phrase of the verse, so it is possible for both the kids and the eGroup Leader to collect each verse phrase.) Whoever completes the verse first wins!
VERSE PRACTICE
Use the following methods to help kids practice the memory verse:
REPEAT AFTER ME: Have kids repeat phrases of the verse after you.
PAIR UP: Have kids pair up to practice the verse together.
MOTIONS: Come up with motions to represent phrases in the verse. Practice it together.

“Motion, put your hands together one more time for Up In The Air!

(initiate applause)

Now, let’s answer a few questions about today’s Bible story you read in eGroup and the Up In The Air movie we watched. Circle around your eGroup leaders now!

(give kids a few moments to gather around their eGroup leaders)

First question: What are a few ways Maya showed dishonesty or honesty? Who did her dishonesty or honesty affect? Discuss that now.

(give kids two minutes to answer the question)

Second question: Describe one time when you told the truth and it helped somebody. Discuss that now.

(give kids two minutes to answer the question)

Final question: If you have a friend who’s being dishonest about something, how can you encourage them to be honest? How can being honest help them?”

(give kids two minutes to answer the question)

Worship Intro

“Motion, you had some great answers today! It’s so important for us to show honesty to others. More importantly though, is to be honest with God. One way we can honestly share our feelings towards God is through worship and singing about His great love. Stand to your feet and let’s sing, ‘Love Won’t Let Me Down!’”

Worship Song – Love Won’t Let Me Down

Worship Song – Wake

Dismissal To eGroups

“Great job, Motion! Everybody stay standing because it’s time for us to head back to our eGroups. When I call your eGroup leaders’ name, you can follow them back.”

(dismiss kids back to eGroups)

eGroups

To Tell The Truth

“Welcome back, Motion! I know you had a great time in eGroup, and now it’s time for us to play, for the last time, ‘To Tell The Truth!’ Maya’s not just the only amazing pilot around here — in fact, there have been tons of famous pilots all throughout history! During this game, you’ll need to decide if the information I tell you about a famous pilot is true or false. Then, you’ll move to one side of the room or the other depending on your answer.

Ok, let’s take a look at our final pilot. Wait, I mean pilots… Pilots?Is that the right word? Anyways, check out the screen.

(refer to the first game slide)

These are Belka and Strelka: the goodest boy and girl to ever fly high. In fact, our first question is about how high they really flew! Here’s your first statement and I need you to tell me if this is true or false: Belka and Strelka were the first animals to ever go into the Earth’s orbit. True or false — make your choice by moving to the side of the room that matches up with your answer.

(give kids 30 seconds to choose one side or the other)

If you guessed the answer was true, good job! You’re right! Ok, next question:

(refer to the second game slide)

Belka and Strelka piloted their ship to the moon and returned home safely. True or False? Choose now.

(give kids 30 seconds to choose one side or the other)

If you guessed the answer was false, good job! Belka and Strelka’s mission was only ever to enter Earth’s orbit, not to go into deep space. They only entered the Earth’s orbit.

Ok, last question:

(refer to the third game slide)

Belka and Strelka were so popular in Germany that they had their own cartoon. True or false? Choose now.

(give kids 30 seconds to choose one side or the other)

If you guessed that this answer was false, you’re correct! Belka and Strelka did have their own cartoon, but they weren’t German, they were Russian! Belka and Strelka entered Earth’s orbit in 1960, becoming the first animals to ever fly that high. How cool is that?

Great job, everybody! You did such a good job in the final round of ‘To Tell the Truth.’ Go ahead and find your eGroup leader and have a seat.”

VIP WELCOME

“Before we continue, I want to take a moment and welcome our VIPs who are here with us for the first time today! Motion, help me welcome our VIPs!

(initiate applause)

If it’s your first time here, we consider you a VIP – a very important person! VIPs, turn your attention to the screen because I’ve got some special instructions just for you.

(refer to the screen)

This is a VIP lanyard. If you’re a VIP, you’re wearing this around your neck right now.

[VIP Slide – Lanyard]

When you leave Motion, you need to take that lanyard to the __________ tent called the Welcome Area.

[VIP Slide – Welcome Area]

Once you get to the Welcome Area, show them your lanyard and they will give you a gift!

[VIP Slide – Gift]

Let’s review.

[VIP Slide – All Combined]

VIP Lanyard + Welcome Area = Gift.

If you have any questions about where to go or what to do, just ask someone in a blue eKidz shirt and we’ll be more than happy to help you out!”

BRING IT! CHALLENGE SETUP

“Now Motion, it’s time for the Bring It! Challenge!

During this month’s Bring It! Challenge, you’ll need to do any of the following three things to receive a prize ticket that could earn you a huge piece of candy or our grand prize — your very own drone! Check out the screen.

(watch the Bring It! Challenge video)

That’s right, Motion! To receive a Bring It! prize ticket, you’ll need to do any of the following:

FIND Proverbs 12:22 in your Bible and show it to your eGroup leader.

RECITE the verse for this series, Proverbs 12:22, from memory.

SAY our virtue for this series from memory. In fact, that’s on the screen now, too!

(say the virtue again with the kids)

Honesty: Choosing to be truthful in whatever you say and do.
Ok, so let’s recap: to earn prize tickets and a better chance of receiving the grand prize at the end of this series, which is an awesome drone, just like the one Maya operates, you’ll need to complete the different parts of the Bring It! Challenge. For every part of the Bring It! Challenge you complete, you’ll earn another prize ticket and the more tickets you earn, the better chance you have to win an awesome drone or a giant piece of candy!

(refer to the prize slide)

Circle around your eGroup leaders and let’s complete the Bring It! Challenge!”

Bring It! Challenge

Motion Promotion Video Setup

“Great job during the Bring It! Challenge, Motion!

Motion, I’ve got some pretty big news! Next week is a big event called Motion Promotion. During Motion Promotion, everyone in here is moving up a grade, just like at at school. However, that also means we’ll be making new friends that will be coming into first grade and we’ll also be saying goodbye to our fifth grade friends since they’ll be joining Elevation Youth.

Check out this video to learn more!”

Motion Promotion Video

GAME SETUP – Barely Balanced

“Now Motion, it’s time for today’s game! Throughout Up In The Air, we saw that Maya had to be very careful when flying her drone. If you make one wrong move while flying a drone, you could break the whole thing and trust me, drone repair parts are very expensive! In today’s game, we’re going to practice what it means to stay balanced.

In this game, your Game Group will form a circle and I’ll hand one verrrry tiny spoon and an egg to each Game Group. One person in the Game Group will balance the egg on the spoon. When I say ‘Go!’ they’ll walk around the outside of their Game Group’s circle until they get back to their starting position. Then, they’ll hand the spoon and the egg to the next person in line who will do the same thing. If you drop the egg, you are allowed to pick it up right where you’re standing with no penalty – I understand it’s hard to move around the circle when the egg is barely balanced.

The round continues until all 10 people in your Game Group have had their chance to go around the circle and return their starting spots. The winner of the round is the first Game Group to have all of their members make a circle while balancing the egg on the spoon.

Let’s get ready to play ‘Barely Balanced!’ Everyone find a Game Group now!”
