* Children will have fun putting together a tasty and
friendly Willy Watermelon craft.
* Complete the craft using the simple instructions at DLTK.
Use the black & white version preferably with children 3+ and
older to encourage creativity and use of coloring items.
Children under five may need assistance with scissor cutting.
* Write the following on the green edge of the finished
craft: "Oh taste and see the the Lord is good."
Psalm 34:8 and have the children repeat with you. Try to
sing it to any tune or melody!
* Read the following passage
from your own Bible or here is the passage:

that thrusteth in him."

blessed is the man who takes refuge in him."
Some discussion suggestions:
* This passage gives an opportunity to talk to young
children using sensory perceptions (a tasty watermelon) about the
goodness of God and the meaning of trust.
* Use your own judgment as to how to explain in simple words
how God's presence is in all the good tasty things that he has
* We should always be thankful for the wonderful and tasty
things God has created for He is in all good things around us.
