Image and Likeness of God Activity

09/26/2017 By Jared Dees

“God created mankind in his image; in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.” Genesis 1:27

Activity: God's Image and Likeness

We read in the first chapter of the Book of Genesis that God created human beings in his image and likeness. If we know who God is and what God is like, then we can know what we are called to become and be like as well. This Creation activity will help students reflect on what they know about God and how they can think and act more like him.

God’s Image and Likeness

All you will need for this activity is a simple sheet of blank paper. To set this activity apart, you might even use legal size paper instead.

On the middle of the paper, ask the students to draw a picture of God. This might be challenging for them and that’s OK. It is actually quite profound to witness what they draw each year. Don’t give them any clues or hints. Let them be creative with what they draw.

Next, around the picture, have them list words and phrases that describe God. Again, this may be challenging at first but no matter where the students are in their faith journeys they have already picked up a certain idea of who God is.

  • What is God like?
  • What does God do (for us)?
  • What does the Bible say about God?
  • What does the Church say about God?
  • What have you learned about God?

Have the students share their pictures if you wish. Also, list on the board all the different ways the students described God and give the class the opportunity to write down additional ideas on their papers.

Our Image and Likeness

Now, have the students flip the paper over.

In the middle of this side of the page, have them draw a picture of themselves.

Around this picture, have them list words and phrases that describe them.

  • What are they like?
  • What do they like to do?
  • What do their parents say about them when they talk to their friends?
  • What do their friends say about them?

Again, give them the chance to share their pictures and their descriptions.

(If you gave the students the opportunity to create the images with markers, the end result of this activity can be very fascinating. Sometimes the blend of drawings on each side makes the point of this activity beautifully: we are made in God’s image and likeness.)

The Likeness of God

Now have the students circle or star all the ways in which they are like God right now. What words or phrases are similar or the same? Circle those.

Finally, challenge them to pick one word or phrase from the description of God and write it under their picture. Draw arrows pointing to this new word or make it stand out in some other way. Ask them what they will need to do to make that word or phrase a reality in their life.

Moving Toward Greater Love

We Are All Images of God

Joan Chittister, Murshid Saadi Shakur Chishti, and Rabbi Arthur Waskow, writing from their traditions of Christianity, Islam, and Judaism, believe we all share equally in God’s image, even amid our joint history of violence.

All our traditions—Jewish, Christian, and Muslim—teach that the human race and every human being are created in the image of God. Rabbinic midrash says that when Caesar puts his image on a coin, each coin comes out identical—but that when the One who is beyond all rulers puts the divine image on the coin of every human being, each “coin” comes out unique.…

Today, the various Caesars of our planet insist that we must fit into a single mold, the mold of uniformity and death.… The pain of these deaths and of this destruction drives some of the children of Hagar, through Ishmael, and some of the children of Sarah, through Isaac, to forget that they are all children of Abraham. That we are all children of Noah and his wife, Naamah, who suffered through the danger that human violence imposes on all who dwell on our planet.…

If we are to celebrate [the Infinite God], we must in the same breath resist the idolatrous Caesars who think to impose upon us their murders. In our banks, our kindergartens, our picket lines and voting booths, as we worship in our graceful sacred buildings and in our quiet forests and on our frenzied streets, through the seasons of our joy and of our sorrow—in all these, we must remember to welcome ourselves, each other, and all who begin as strangers into the Tent that is open to all. [1]

Richard Rohr describes how each person is created in the Divine image, and is called to participate in the process of growing into God’s likeness:

What does it mean that everything created—everything our eyes can see or have ever seen—is somehow a partial reflection of the image of God? How can something be diverse as all of creation, and at the same time say that reality is more one than many? We say it of God, and we say it of everything our eyes have ever seen.

If we don’t view everything as created in the image of God, what happens? We start picking and choosing: well, that’s created in the image of God, but that is not. But everything, everything, is created in the image of God.

What, then, does likeness mean? In the early centuries of Christianity, the Church Fathers concluded: image was our objective, unquestionable creation as a child or image of God. Likeness was our personal appropriation of that reality. Two people might equally be images of God, but perhaps only one chooses to become kind, forgiving, inclusive, accepting, and patient, full of the great virtues. We already have image, but we grow in likeness. There is a dynamism toward growth, universality, and an infinite love that we can’t get rid of. [2]

Story from Our Community:   

Right now in my life, I find myself in “the eye of a storm.” At first, I felt somewhat baffled by this experience. Recently, though, I have come to realize that this is a transformational time. I feel myself embodying a sacred, peaceful, compassionate sense of being event amidst the never-ending storm. I feel so much more grounded after traveling on a four-year journey with Fr. Rohr’s guidance. I’m so grateful for CAC’s deep, faithful support. Many loving thanks! —Lorraine C.

This year’s theme

A Christian Object Lesson - "Image of God"

Use this Christian object lesson to teach how we are not only created in God's image, but our lives should also reflect His image each and every day.

This is an easy Bible children's talk that can be used in Children's Church, as a children's sermon, or for any children's ministry purpose. I used it for a devotion for our Upward Basketball games. It could also be used during Awana council time.

Also, try these other great Bible object lessons!

images of god worksheet

Object Lesson:

Object: Digital camera or photo and a small mirror

Scriptures:    Genesis 1:27 - "So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created Him; male and female He created them."

2 Cor. 3:18 tells us: "And all of us have had that veil removed so that we can be mirrors that brightly reflect the glory of the Lord. And as the Spirit of the Lord works within us,we become more and more like Him and reflect His glory even more.

The Bible tells us in Genesis 1:27 - "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them."

Ask if anyone knows what an "image" is. Accept varied answers and comment positively on them so kids will continue to participate.

Have the following definition to summarize and clarify the meaning of "image."

The dictionary gives this definition: "a physical likeness or representation of a person, animal, or thing, photographed, painted, sculptured, or otherwise made visible."

Take a picture of someone in the group with a digital camera or bring a photo of someone most everyone will recognize like a famous person.

Ask them if the photo or "image" is actually that person. Of course it's not. The image can't speak, think, etc., but it does show a lot about the person and what they are like.

In the same way, we are created in the "image of God." We are NOT God, but created to be like Him and reflect what He is like.

God created us in His image to be perfect, but just like a computer can "warp" or change an image until you can't recognize the person in the photo, so sin warped the image of God in us.

God, however, sent His perfect image, Jesus Christ, to restore God's image in us as we accept Him as our Savior and Lord.

Describe the person in the photo to them and ask them to guess who it is from your description. Be vague in your description such as "this person has brown hair, is a girl, & looks friendly."

When I used this Christian object lesson for a children's devotional for our Upward Basketball games, I used my digital camera to take a picture of someone actually in the room.

Then show them the photo & have them point out or name the person in the picture. Ask them how they were able to recognize them so quickly when you showed them the photo.

Christian object lesson Main Points Transition:

Point 1: we can use words to describe jesus, but if we can show others his image in us, they will be able to recognize him more easily. point 2: how can we do this we can be mirrors.

images of god worksheet

Hold the mirror in three different ways while asking them if they can see their reflection.

1) Hold the mirror facing away from them. -> When we are not looking to God and learning about Him, we won't be reflecting His image either.

2) Hold the mirror facing them but covered with a piece of paper. -> There can't be anything between the mirror and our eyes. Others won't see the image of God in us either if there is something between us and Him.

3) Move the mirror all around as they try to look at their image. -> We need to take time to "be still and know that He is God." We need to daily spend time with Him in prayer & Bible study so that we will become more like Him.

2 Cor. 3:18 tells us:

"And all of us have had that veil removed so that we can be mirrors that brightly reflect the glory of the Lord. And as the Spirit of the Lord works within us, we become more and more like Him and reflect His glory even more."

By us reflecting God's image, others will be able to recognize Him. We can use words to describe Jesus, but if others can see an image of Him in us, they will be able to recognize Him more easily. This Christian object lesson can also be easily divided into two smaller children's Bible talks. Really it's two Christian object lessons in one - one using a digital camera or photo to teach what it means to be created in the image of God and the other using a mirror to teach how we can reflect His image through our Christian lives.

Separately, they were each about five to ten minute short children's talks. Together they could easily be a twenty to thirty minute children's sermon.

Either way, this Christian object lesson takes little or no preparation and the kids (whether they're preschoolers or teens) enjoy it and are better able to understand these Biblical truths.

Paper Airplane Object Lesson

Print Friendly and PDF

So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. Genesis 1:27 NIV

SAY : It’s really big deal to be made “in the image of God.” One cool part is that we can make new things. God is the creator , so being like him makes us creative . Watch this, I can make something really wonderful from this simple piece of paper. Being to fold the paper without telling what you will make. The kids might begin to guess, but say “shhh … let’s keep what this is going to be a secret until I’m done.” When done hold up the paper airplane for the children to see. SAY : Because we’re made in God’s image we can make some amazing things. This is just a little paper airplane, but some of you will grow up to make much bigger things. You might build houses, you might start a new restaurant, you might write a book … there are so many different ways to be creative. All of this reminds us about God’s glory, because when we make things it shows what God is like. Close in prayer, thanking God for making us to be like Him.

>>>> Optional Activities <<<<

To expand this simple object lesson, pick from the following list of suggestions. You can also leave a comment to share your ideas with other readers. Bible Memory : Work with the children to memorize Genesis 1:27. For maximum impact, use our creative Bible memory methods . Make Airplanes : Teach the children to make their own paper airplane. This can be challenging for a large group or with younger children. Here is how I made it work in my children’s church.

  • Instruct the children that we all have to work each step together. So after they complete each step they should place their hands on their head to show they are ready to continue. Demonstrate each step as the children attempt the same with their piece of paper. Have a few older children or adult volunteers walk around to check & correct each child’s work.
  • Once the airplanes are finished, insist that they hold their airplanes until you give them the signal. Have all the children sit at one end of the room. Call one child at a time to stand and test their airplane. I used this time to encourage each child and fix any of the airplanes that did not fly.
  • After the test flights, distribute washable markers for the children to decorate their work. This step extends the object lesson. SAY : God doesn’t just make things that work, he makes beautiful things. Let’s be like God and decorate what we’ve created.

Teachers Dig In

Dig In to the Bible

  • Read: Genesis 1
  • In This Passage: God makes the world. God is creative, making all different kinds of plants and animals, birds and fish, and land and sea. Finally, he creates the pinnacle of his creation: humans! He makes people in his own image, so we can be creative, too!
  • Bible Point: God is creative…
  • Application : …so we’re creative.
  • Summary Verse: “Have you never heard? Have you never understood? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth. He never grows weak or weary. No one can measure the depths of his understanding” (Isaiah 40:28).
  • You’ll Be Teaching: God is creative. Most younger kids think they’re creative. But as kids start to age, some get the message that creativity just isn’t their thing. Help kids see that they’re created in the image of the Creator. God is creative, and that creativity is infused into each of us in different ways.
  • Think About: What’s the last creative thing you did? What does that show you about God’s creativity?

Dig In to Prayer

  • Pray that God would reveal his creativity to each child as kids consider how he made each of them specifically.
  • Creativity is not just revealed in art and music. It can show up in creative problem-solving, a new idea for how to play a game, or a wild imagination. Look for creativity in your kids this week. Try to affirm each child for how he or she is reflecting God’s creativity.

Let's keep kids safe! You can help by using supplies as instructed for only ages 3+, purchasing child-safe items, and being aware of allergy concerns.

Opening [5 min]

  • Thank kids for coming.
  • Just for fun, have kids shake hands with four friends using the back of their hands.
  • Make announcements.
  • Introduce new kids.
  • Celebrate birthdays by having kids sing the words “happy birthday” like opera singers.

Introduce the Lesson

            Say: Today we’re going to learn that God is creative . He made everything and said it was good.

  • Tell kids about something you made that you’re proud of.
  • Have kids form pairs. Ask kids to share about something they made that they’re proud of.
  • After partners have discussed, ask two or three kids to share with the whole group what they talked about with their partners.

            Open a Bible to Genesis 1, and say: Being creative is fun! We all have creativity in us because God is creative and made us in his image. Let’s find out more about what the Bible says about that. The Bible isn’t an ordinary book; it’s God’s special book. The Bible is one way God shows us his heart and how we can reflect him. God is here right now, ready to talk to you. Let’s hear what he has to say as we pray.

            Pray, praising God for his creativity .

Core Bible Discovery [20 min]

God creates us in his image (genesis 1).

            Say: Today we’re going to discover that God is creative . God is so creative that he made the whole world!

            Distribute shapes. Then have kids find three other people who are “cut from the same cloth” as they are. That means they’ll find kids with different shapes but the same color or pattern of paper. When they find the three other kids, they’ll form a group of four.

            Assign each group one of the following parts of creation (it’s okay if you don’t cover them all or if you repeat some):

  • land and seas (Genesis 1:9-10)
  • plants (Genesis 1:11-12)
  • sun, moon, and stars (Genesis 1:14-18)
  • fish (Genesis 1:20-22)
  • birds (Genesis 1:20-22)
  • animals (Genesis 1:24-25)

            Give each group a Bible and a bag of objects, and set out craft supplies to share. Say: You’re going to use the items in your bag to make a display of your group’s part of creation. You can also use craft supplies if you want, but you have to use every item in your bag in a creative way. God is creative, so you’re creative , too! Work with your group, and make sure everyone is involved in creating. Ready? Go!

            Direct kids to read their passages first; then allow about five minutes for groups to make their creations. Then have groups show everyone else what they made.

            Say: Wow, God is creative ! He made the skies, the land and seas, and everything in the skies, on the land, and in the sea. That’s amazing! But you know, you were pretty creative when you made your displays. That’s because there’s something very special about the way God made his last creation: people.

            Read Genesis 1:26-27.

            Ask: • What do you think it means to be made in God’s image?

            • What’s something about you that you think reflects who God is? Give your own example first, such as that you love kids and you know God loves people, too, or that you like to garden and that reflects God’s creation of flowers and plants. Have kids each tell a partner, and then ask a few kids to share with the whole group.

            Say: We’re learning that God is creative . And since you were made in his image, you’re creative, too! I got to see a little bit of who God is when I watched you creating your displays.

            I’m so glad I get to see God’s creativity in each of you.

            Say: We’re made in God’s image, but we’re not God. It’s like when you look at a picture of yourself or look in the mirror. You see someone who looks like you, but it’s not exactly you.

            Being made in God’s image means we can see in ourselves and our friends little human-sized glimpses of what God is like.

            Let’s explore what it means to be made in God’s image. Earlier, you formed groups with people who were “cut from the same cloth” as you. They had different shapes, but I used the same paper to make all the shapes for your group. Being made in God’s image is kind of like that. We’re all cut from the same cloth—God’s image.

            Give each child an “In His Image” handout and a pen. Have kids write their flaws or shortcomings around the edges of the square. Let kids know that no one else will see what they write.

            Then have kids each cut out the shape of a person from the paper, cutting the person only out of the printed square (so it doesn’t include the things they wrote).

            Say: Because we’re human—and we’re not God—we all have flaws and shortcomings. But the fact that we’re created in God’s image means that deep down within us, we’re cut from the same cloth as God. We share some of his amazing qualities! Point to one of the words written on your paper person. Pause. Now turn to a partner and tell how you’ve seen that quality in someone else. Pause while partners share. God is creative, and you’re creative !

            Ask: • How does it change the way you think about yourself to know you were made in God’s image?

            • How might it change the way you treat other people when you think about the fact that they’re made in God’s image?

            Have kids throw away the scraps from their handouts, keeping the people.

            Say: The more we get to know God, the more he’ll bring out his image in us. As our friendship with God grows, those things that aren’t a reflection of God get smaller. God can grow his awesome qualities in us! He’ll help us treat others like they were made in his image, too.

            Today we’re going to focus on how God is creative and helps us be creative. But if you keep coming back, we’re going to spend the next year getting to know God better and asking him to shape us more and more into his image.

            Let’s pray about that.

            Pray: Dear God, thank you that you are creative . Thank you that you made us in your image so we’re creative, too! Help us reflect your image more and more all the time. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Talk-About Video [10 min]

Dominic’s story.

Don’t have internet in your classroom? That’s okay! You can download the videos before class using the “download” button at the link provided, or purchase DVDs here .

Discuss and Watch “Dominic’s Story”

            Say: Today we’re learning that God is creative . God made us, and he did a great job of it! God made us to be creative , too. That means we can make great and exciting things.

            Tell about something you make that you think is great or exciting.

            Ask: • What’s something you like to make that you think is great?

            Say: Let’s meet a boy who loves making things, and he likes to use his talents to share about God’s love.

            Watch “Dominic’s Story.”

            Ask: • What was the coolest thing you saw Dominic make?

            • Dominic liked to use his creativity, or ability to make things, to share about God’s love. What can you make to share God’s love?

            Say: Dominic loves using his creativity. Whenever Dominic creates something, it shows that he was made by God because God is so creative . We can be creative , too, because God made us that way!

Object Lesson [10 min]

Ru-la-ti-do.

Play a Song

            Ask: • Have you ever played an instrument? What did you play?

            Say: I’ve brought unusual instruments for us to play today. Show kids the rulers. Did you know that rulers can sing? Well, they can with your creative help!

  • Demonstrate first by placing a ruler on the edge of a table or seat of a chair. Hold the ruler firmly to the table about 2 inches from the edge of the table with several inches hanging over the edge of the table.
  • With your other hand, push down on the end of the ruler that’s hanging over the table, and then release the ruler. It’ll cause a vibration and make a sound.

images of god worksheet

  • Slide the ruler forward or backward, and then press and release it again. You’ll notice that this time, the pitch is higher if you move the ruler forward and lower if you move it back.
  • Use the inch or centimeter markings to find different notes as you demonstrate.
  • Form pairs and give each pair a ruler.
  • Invite kids to experiment and try to make the rulers play different notes. They can even try to play simple songs they know like “Mary Had a Little Lamb,” “Hot Cross Buns,” or “Are You Sleeping?”

Make Up a Song

Say: It’s fun to try to play songs we know. But now let’s create new ones! I’ll give you three minutes to create a song; then you’ll have a chance to play it for all of us.

  • Have kids make up songs with their rulers. If they’d like, they can mark the rulers with dry-erase markers to help them remember where to move the rulers for each note.
  • After three minutes, ask for willing kids who’d like to play their songs for the group. Lead kids in clapping and cheering for their friends after they play.

Talk About It

            Say: God created the world from nothing, but we used rulers to create our songs. We used our creativity to create something new. God is creative . We see his creativity in nature, and we can hear it, too!

            Ask: • Tell about a time you heard God’s creativity. Share an example from your own life to begin. Perhaps it was a bird tweeting when you were going for a walk or a person singing at your church.

            Say: We hear God’s musical creativity when birds sing, but we also hear it through the people God made. We hear God’s creativity through songs that composers wrote a long time ago or songs that our favorite musicians make today. God is creative , and he’s created us to make beautiful things, too—including music.

Deeper Bible [15 min]

If god created us in his image, why are we all different.

            Set out the can of corn and the five items from the list provided.

            Say: There’s something all these items have in common. Your job is to put on your detective hats, examine the items, and determine what they have in common.

            Allow several minutes for kids to study the items and hypothesize in their groups. Then ask for some theories. It’s unlikely anyone will figure it out.

            Say: The answer will surprise you. All these items have corn as an ingredient!

            Ask: • Which item is hardest to believe comes from corn?

            • Which is easiest to believe?

            Hold up the can of corn. Say: Before you knew the answer to our riddle, if I’d asked you what this was made of, you would’ve said corn.

            Hold up one of the items kids found hardest to believe. Say: But this…this just doesn’t seem like it’s made of corn, does it? All these things look different and perform different functions. Even though they’re all made of corn, you shouldn’t eat any of them for dinner…besides the canned corn! And yet, even though they’re all different, they’re all made with one of the same ingredients.

            We’re learning that God is creative and that we’re made in his image. But if we’re all made in his image, why are we all different? We look different on the outside, and our personalities are really different! Let’s dig in and see how God is like an ingredient in each of us.

            Say: We’re going to have a race. Your goal is to be the first one across the room and back. But you have to choose whether you’ll use your right leg but no left leg or arms, your left leg but no right leg or arms, or your arms but no legs.

            Have kids line up along one side of the room, and then start the race. As kids finish (or find it impossible), gather them back together.

            Ask: • Why was it hard to run a race using just one leg or only your arms?

            • Suppose you had to choose whether to keep your eyes, ears, hands, or feet. Which would you choose?

            • What would you not be able to do when you lost the other three parts?

            Say: The Bible talks about this very issue: Is one part of the body more important than others? It’s the idea that God is too big to fit his whole image into one person. So we each are like different parts of a body, called the body of Christ. We each show a different part of who God is so that together, we can see a fuller picture of God. Let’s look at the Bible verses that talk about that.

            Say: As I read, I need your help demonstrating it in a Hokey Pokey kind of way. Every time I name a body part, stick out that part of your body. And if I say “body,” jump your whole body forward! (Kids will need a lot of space to jump forward.)

            Read 1 Corinthians 12:12-21 and 27-30.

            Ask: • According to these passages, why do you think God made us all different?

            Say: Your hand is a part of you. But it doesn’t show all of you! In the same way, every one of us is an important part that makes up the body of Christ, which reflects God’s image. And that doesn’t mean we each look like God on the outside. It means our hearts each reflect a different part of who God is.

Reflect Light

            Say: Let’s see one more example of how we each reflect a different part of God.

  • Have kids form pairs.
  • Give each pair a CD and a flashlight. (If needed, pairs can take turns with the flashlights.)
  • Turn off the lights.
  • Have one partner shine the flashlight on the bottom of the CD, while the other partner angles the CD to reflect the light on the wall or floor. It should create a rainbow.

            Ask: • What did you notice about the light you reflected?

            Say: Light is made up of different colors. We can see that when the sun shines through the rain and makes a rainbow. And we saw it when you reflected light off your CD. Every color reflects a different part of the light. But if we had only one of those colors, we wouldn’t see the full aspect of light!

            Ask: • How does that remind you of the way God made us all different?

            Say: God made us all different, like the different colors. When we come together, our hearts can reflect what God is like because we’re made in his image. And God is creative , so our creativity is one way to reflect his image.

High-Energy Game [10 min]

Create your own game.

  • The game supplies listed are suggestions. Feel free to use whatever you have at your church, but offer a wide variety for kids to choose from for creating their own game.
  • You can purchase downloadable music and other items to enhance your DIG IN program here .

Create and Play an Original Game

            Say: We’re learning that God created our world and everything in it. When you look around, it’s easy to see that God is creative ! God made us in his image, and that means God put some creativity in us, too. For this game, you get to use your creativity as you make up the rules and then play!

  • choosing a game they already know to be the “backbone” of their new game. They can creatively change the familiar game into something new and high-energy. Give ideas such as Tag, Hopscotch, volleyball, soccer, card sorting, or jump-rope games.
  • combining two well-known games into one, such as adding a Tag element to soccer or jump-rope blended into Hopscotch.
  • Allow a few minutes for kids to nail down the rules of their game, decide on what game supplies they’ll need from the mix, and form teams (if necessary).
  • Give a signal to start the game, and allow kids to play their own game, making any tweaks they’d like to make after each round.
  • If you’d like, play upbeat music while kids play.

            Ask: • What was fun about creating a game?

            • What do you think worked best in the game?

            • What do you like about using the creativity God gave you?

            Say: The Bible says that as God created our world and looked over all he was making, he kept seeing that “it was good.” God was pleased with his creation. That sounds like God was enjoying creating, maybe even having some fun like you did in creating your own game. God is creative and shared that awesome part of himself with us, so we’re creative, too!

Low-Energy Game [10 min]

Make a face.

Play a Version of Pin the Tail on the Donkey

            Say: We’ve learned about how God made the world and all of us. Even just looking around this room and seeing all the different faces God has made makes it easy to see that God isn’t just any creator— God is creative ! In our next game, you’ll get to be creative, too.

  • Form teams of three, and have each team gather by a set of facial features on the floor.
  • Have kids take turns choosing a facial feature and making a tape loop to place on the back of the piece.
  • When a facial feature is ready, a child will close his or her eyes, spin quickly three times, and try to put the piece on the face outline.
  • Team members can call out to guide their friend as he or she goes toward the face outline to place the facial feature.
  • Teams are done when their faces each have two eyes, eyebrows, ears, a mouth, and a nose.
  • Give a signal to start the game. If you’d like, play upbeat music while kids play.
  • For a silly second round, have kids choose their facial features with eyes closed to see what the faces look like at the end.

            Ask: • Even though everyone was working with facial features that looked the same, why did the faces end up looking different?

            • What do you think the world would be like if we were all exactly the same?

            • What’s something you like about the way God made you? Share an example of your own—it can be a physical attribute, such as your eye color, or something about your personality, such as a kind heart.

            Say: We all have eyes, ears, things we’re good at, things we like—but all those things are different for each person. You’re all one-of-a-kind proof that God is creative , and you showed in our game that you’re creative, too!

Craft [20 min]

Masterpiece mirror frames.

images of god worksheet

Make Mirror Frames

            Say: God is creative, so you’re creative ! Let’s use our creativity!

            Show kids the sample craft you made. Set out supplies to share, and have kids follow these instructions to make mirror frames.

  • Cut a large rectangle out of cardboard or card stock. (It should be slightly bigger than your face.)
  • Cut out the inside of the rectangle, leaving a roughly 1-inch frame.
  • Cover the frame with fun colors and patterns of duct tape.
  • Add stickers, gems, and other decorations.
  • Somewhere on the frame, write “Masterpiece.”

Take Selfies

            Read Ephesians 2:10. Say: When you get home, you can tape this frame on your mirror. Whenever you look at your reflection, the frame can be a reminder that God is creative and he showed his creativity in how he made you —his masterpiece!

  • Have kids take turns holding their frames up to a mirror and looking at their reflections.
  • Alternatively, the frames can be used for fun selfies! Kids can hold their frames in front of their faces and take group selfies. Some kids may have their own phones to use for selfies.

            Ask: • What did you do to make your frame creative?

            • What’s something creative about the way God made you?

            Say: God is creative , and he’s so creative that he made each of us different! But even though we’re all different, we’re all his masterpieces. That’s because we’re made in his image. Thanks for using your God-given creativity to make such fun frames!

            Have kids take their frames home and hang them on their mirrors or use them for selfies with friends and family as a reminder that God is creative and made them creatively.

Paul Taught About the Armor of God

images of god worksheet

When Paul wrote to the Ephesian church and talked to them about Christian warfare in Ephesians chapter 6, he told them about God's "spiritual armor." This spiritual armor consists of "weapons" God has provided that His people need in order to fight the spiritual battle in which we are engaged. This is a battle against Satan and the powers of evil. It's a battle that threatens the unity of the Lord's church and the people in it who are to operate in love. The activities below are about Paul's teaching on the armor of God.

Kumon tutoring TikToks are bringing up hilariously painful memories for Asian millennials and Gen Zers

Photo Illustration: A child doing homework next to a large stack of books

With its vaguely sad-looking logo burned into the brains of children across the world, Kumon has been a staple of Asian American life for decades. The math and reading training center has been the subject of standup jokes, memes and, most recently, TikTok fame. 

Videos of young adults spoofing their time at Kumon have reached millions, bringing in Asian American audiences who say they can definitely relate.  

“I feel like I spent my whole childhood at Kumon,” said Aly Panjwani, 26, who was a student at a Texas center from elementary to early high school. “It was somewhere between a community center, tutoring center and a cult.”

Kumon-Tok is mostly filled with jokes about tall stacks of homework and anxiety-inducing timed tests, a common experience that represents a few laughs and stellar mental math skills years later. 

“It’s a place for childhood trauma,” one Indian American TikToker joked in a viral video talking about her experiences.  

Kumon-related content is among the most popular on her page, with commenters hungry to chime in with their own experiences. 

“Kumon was the death of me,” one person said in the comments of one of her videos. 

TikToks like hers have given Asian Americans the chance to reignite their collective Kumon commiserating, something they say brought them together as kids, too. 

Panjwani said that, strangely, Kumon provided a space for him to spend time with his friends and cousins, as they were also all enrolled in classes there. As he got older, he also found himself getting closer in age to the center’s teachers and support staff, who were high school students, too, he said. 

“It was a thing we all did together,” he said. “At times we really hated it, and at times we found it a space to hang out with each other.”

Parents who went to Kumon as kids are also now documenting their own children completing the familiar packets of work. 

Popular creator Vidya Gopalan has gained a following of nearly 3 million sharing videos of her kids, some of which center around their Kumon journeys. 

In one video, she jokingly hands them extra Kumon worksheets to do after they’ve just finished their homework. 

“You can’t have any fun unless you finish it,” she jokes. 

Kumon has long been the subject of debate among parents and educators. Some say it’s unnecessary, while others say it can really help.

Childhood education experts see both sides of it. 

“It really pushes academics in early childhood education, where the focus should be on play, socialization, and building relationships,” said Jamie Cho, an assistant teaching professor of justice in early learning at the University of Washington. “It’s this race to nowhere.”

Kumon, SAT prep classes and similar services also contribute to academic divides between lower and higher income families, she said. 

“Programs are limited to those with financial means and with the transportation and time to shuttle kids to after school programming that’s not part of a school curriculum,” Cho said.

Andrew Estrada Phuong, now an assistant professor of education studies at the University of California, San Diego, remembers his own time at Kumon as being “transformative.” 

“When I was young, I had a lot of math anxiety,” he said. “I was able to go from a struggling student to a student who was actually able to tutor other students afterwards. It really transformed my learning trajectory.”

Payal Patel, 30, remembers her Kumon packets following her across the world, even on family trips. 

“When we went on vacation my mom would get like two or three weeks worth of stacks of worksheets,” she said. “That was overwhelming because when you see a huge stack of Kumon, you’re like, ‘Oh, God.’”

But years of timed tests have left her with strong math skills to this day, she said, and she’s able to solve problems quickly in her head. 

Kumon has also joined in on the fun with their own TikTok page. One 30-second video simply explaining Kumon’s independent learning method topped a million views, with commenters taking the opportunity to vent. 

“Not you making it look innocent,” one person said. 

“I’m so lucky that my mom does not know Kumon,” said another. 

Panjwani says there’s no doubt that going to Kumon had its benefits on his life and his academic career. Now, as a young adult, he looks back on it with neither fondness nor contempt.

“Something about the logo, the guy not really smiling, really describes how I feel about the place,” he said. “Whenever I see or pass by a Kumon anywhere, I just giggle to myself.”
