These colorful candle holders are fun for kids to make. Little children will need more help than older ones. Once finished, add a battery operated tea light and place on your prayer table. Then you have a colorful votive candle holder.
GLOW (God Lights Our Way)
I am offering two options here for the play area. One uses glow in the dark sidewalk chalk. For the other option, you can make the mat from a purchased Twister game and glow in the dark paint.
Most people working with youth are familiar with Balloon Stomp. This is a glow in the dark twist on the game. It would go well with a GLOW (God Lights Our Way) theme or just any evening activity.
Glow in the dark sidewalk chalk is a fun addition to an nighttime activity. You can use it to welcome youth to the event, write inspirational messages, or let your participants have a creative outlet.
GLOW dodge ball puts a fun twist on your traditional dodge ball game. It is a glow in the dark version of traditional dodgeball. Play it at night or if you can darken your gym you can play in any time. This is a great game for an open gym night with your teens.
This is a fun easy game for any “light” themed youth ministry meeting or Vacation Bible School. It only requires a few materials – glow sticks and water bottles.
The readings for the 4th Sunday of Lent are about sight and blindness. Some possible themes for this weekend are light and darkness, or how we see ourselves, others, and God.
