Playing With Play-Doh Week Nine “It is good.”




Wow! Today was amazing with Jessica! For not playing with play-doh for two weeks. I remembered most of the process all by myself. Jessica only had to help me toward the end. See how this vase is not as pretty as the one above? That’s okay. I did it, so it’s beautiful.The same principle applies to us as humans and everything God made in the earth. Genesis 1:31 says, “And God saw everything he had made, and it was very good.” Lord, help me not to get obsessed with the world’s beauty products and remember when you looked at me, you designed me and said, “Very good.” You are the master artist! Amen.

Activity/ Discussion 5th or 6th grade Awana or Sunday School. Have the kids copy a favorite picture of something they like or make something yourself with play-doh. See how well they can copy the design. Go around the room and give them compliments for their work of art even if it is a little sloppy. For me personally, I am such a perfectionist. When I copy something, I want to do it exactly like the picture. I get frustrated easily when I can’t-do something because of the limitations with my limited hand dexterity. Because I have cerebral palsy, learning things takes time. God didn’t create things in one day. He took His time. Then He looked at everything and said, “It Is good.”  Remind the kids how when God looked at them, He said, “It is good.”
