Taking care of your body is important. God gave you something sacred: life. He expects us to care for the bodies He gave us, so that we may do good with them in His name.
Use the placemat chart as a guide to healthy eating. You or a family member can make a placemat for where you sit at the table for meals. Genesis tells us that God has provided us a plentiful harvest of good things to eat—so, bon appétit!
For this fun game, you will need an assortment of at least 10 coins, a small bowl, a stopwatch or timer, and paper and pencil to record the times.
Scatter the coins around the small area where you and others will be playing. Place the bowl next to the coins. You’ll need a timekeeper and they will tell you when to start. All the players are to pick up as many coins as possible in the shortest amount of time. Repeat this at least three times. Ask an adult or older sibling to average each player’s by dividing the total time by three.
For the next round, scatter all of the coins, but ask the players to only pick up a certain number or kind of coins (for example, only the dimes). Have them count out loud if it helps!

Ask a parent or family member to help you with this science project. Let's see what objects float in water and which ones sink. Get a big bowl of water and fill it about half full. (If you're not sure how much that is, ask!) Or, when it is time to take a bath, ask if you can conduct this experiment then. Now collect a few things to test. Some examples:
Which ones float? Which ones sink? Did you guess which ones would float? If you filled the empty water bottle with just a little bit of water, what happens? Drop the tree bark from a few inches above the water. See what happens. If you drop it from even higher, does it do the opposite from when you dropped it before?

Read the story of Esther's role as queen from the Bible or from a Bible story book (Esther 4:12-17 and 7:1-6). Stress that God blessed her by making her queen so that she could be a blessing to her people (save them). God put her in that place at just the right time to change the king's mind about killing the Jewish people. God used her willingness to help in order to save His people. Through an ordinary person like Esther, God accomplished His will and blessed many.
Dear Jesus, You have given us the greatest gift—Yourself. Thank You for loving us so much that You would die on the cross to give us forgiveness of our sins. Help us to respond to this blessing with thankfulness and with service to the others. Bless the offering of our time, talents and treasures that we give. In Jesus' name. Amen.
