Sower and the Seed Exercise

Categories: Gospel of Matthew

Teachers: Bring a packet of seeds to church. Have the children toss some seeds on the ground - parking lot, grass and then have a special pot with soil for them to plant some seeds. You can tend to it and bring it each Sunday or give the children their own little cups or pots with seeds. On the next Sunday, what happened to the seeds?

  • Look for the seeds on the parking lot, did they disappear or grow?
  • What about ones over by the rocks?
  • What about around the grass?
  • How are the seeds in the pot growing?

Go back over the parable as you explain our faith and love for God. Are we ready to let our love for God take root and grow deep?
