Animation Trail Bible Study for Children

New Attitude - Hiking With a Partner

Teachers may add their own creative skills and special touches. You can use snacks, play games, select music and/or use a study of the people in the Bible chosen by God to teach this lesson. At Calvary Kids Church, we will be having our church drama team present a skit with some of the lessons. Each week is different. Be creative and capture their attention. Remember they will be getting to know the Critters, their personalities, and be able to relate to them as time goes on.

Read the Bible Verse for the day!

The Bible Says:

    "So, I say, live by the Holy Spirit's power. Then you will not do what your sinful nature wants you to do." Galatians 5:16
God can help us to have good attitudes. Teach the children to ask God for help when they find themselves having bad attitudes.
(Speak with the children)
Do you ever feel grouchy, lazy, hateful, mean, or just want to act ugly? Those are bad attitudes. God wants you to change those bad feelings into better ones. Jesus has the good ones and they are described as, "Fruits of His Spirit" in the Bible. You might have learned to ask yourself, "What Would Jesus Do?" Gramma Cherbear would like you to also ask, "How Would Jesus Act?"
(Teach the children)
"But the fruit the Holy Spirit produces is love, joy and peace. It is being patient, kind and good. It is being faithful and gentle and having control of oneself." Galations 5:22.
When tempted to act badly, we can let the Holy Spirit be our Hiking Partner and remember that God wants us to act like Jesus. He will be able to bless us if we do.
(Let the Critters help teach the lesson)
New Attitude - Hiking With A Partner
This beautiful winter morning in the Kid Cave Forest was suppose to be full of fun! The Critters acted with bad attitudes and Emmi Squirrel was hurt in the scuffle! Everyone is sad for Emmi. They are sorry they did not use the New Attitudes they have because they belong to God. They could have chosen not to get mad, or ugly. They would still be having fun if they would have acted in kindness and love. They needed the Holy Spirit to be their Hiking Partner!

Worship God with music.


Use crafts, games, puzzles, hidden pictures, word search, mazes, and books to further emphasize the current weeks' teachings.

Make Origami Dolls as shown at Enchanted Learning. I used straws with a bend, taped to the back of the doll to make the puppet easy to play with. Have the children give the dolls different attitudes.

Repeat today's Bible verse.


Pass out the coloring pages.
