Family Devotional - In God's Image (3rd - 4th grade) by Aaron and Julie Breford

Singing!
Have the kids pick some of their favorites and/or sing some about creation, ie. "He's Got The Whole World In His Hands".
Scripture: Genesis 1:27, 31 "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created him."27

"God saw all that he had made, and it was very good."31

Pray!
Objective. Through this devotional the family will be more aware that although everyone was created different from one another, we were all created in God's image and we are all therefore good and special to God.
Explain. God has made each one of us in his image and therefore he loves each one of us in a special way. You need to understand how special you are to God. He loves you deep in his heart. He also loves each one of your family members and friends deep in his heart, not to mention those people that you find it difficult to love.
Activity. Go through some pictures or photo albums and talk about each family member (and maybe some friends if you have an only child). Have everyone share about a specific God-like characteristic(s) that they see in each family member. For example, joyful, good at science, servant, kind, etc. Talk about people who may be difficult to love. Think of God-like characteristics in those people, too. Remember those traits and that God also sees them as special.
Craft. Take a large piece of paper. Write on the top, "In God's Image". Take old magazines, cut out pictures of different kinds of people and make a collage. Or if you'd rather, you can make a collage out of pictures of family and friends. You can even frame it and hang it up in your home if you like.
Pray. Thank God for his wonderful creations. Thank him for how we are all individual and special. Ask for help to always remember people's God-like characteristics, especially when they are difficult for us to see.
