God’s Little Explorers Week 21
- Theme: ”o” is for Opposites
- Bible Story: Jesus at Mary & Martha’s house
- Bible Verse: “Be still, and know that I am God.” Psalm 46:10
- Letter: o
- Color: Blue
Here are a few opposite theme activities we did:
First, we went around the house finding opposites like hot and cold….
Off and on….
Open and closed… (please ignore the crumbs!!)
A few more ideas are up & down, under & over, in & out, loud & soft, upstairs & downstairs, inside & outside, and top & bottom.
I had my daughter estimate how many mini clothespins she thought would fit into this container. Then, we filled it up and counted how many actually fit. We talked about the opposites “in and out”.
Since the clothespins were already out, we played a quick game. We stood on a chair and tried to drop the clothespins into several containers (milk jug, pitcher, and jar).
We had an “opposites taste test” where they tried sweet foods and sour foods, salty foods and bland foods, spicy foods and not-so-spicy foods.
We played “Red Light, Green Light”, but substituted Mary for Red Light (since she stopped and listened to Jesus) and Martha for Green Light (since she was on-the-go and too busy to stop)!
We ended the week with an “Opposite Day”. We had dinner for breakfast, wore pajamas backwards all day, did school in the afternoon, and had breakfast at dinner.
