DLTK's Crafts for Kids
Recipe Card for me!

This is a great project for helping children identify and share their strengths.

Children must be able to print or have an adult/buddy to print for them.  I have included some ideas for general use, children just meeting each other (ice breaker), Sunday school, younger children and families to participate in the project.



Ideas for Use:

  1. Ice Breaker:
    • If you're in a very big group, divide the larger group into smaller groups of 10 or less children - each with one adult or older child as "leader"
    • Have each child complete the "ingredients" with 3 physical characteristics and 3 personality characteristics
      (ex:  blue eyes, brown hair, freckles, a good sense of humor, a loving family and a love of reading).
    • Have each child include a paragraph on the back of the recipe card that talks about why they're excited about the new group and what new "ingredients" they hope to get from it (ex:  "new friendships", "learning about computers", etc).
    • Have the leader read the recipe card to the group and let everyone guess who the card describes
    • Have each child read their card to the group.
    • Optional:  Have the leader graph the ingredients on the white board to see how many things the children have in common.
  2. Sunday School:
    • Combine the "recipe for me" cards with a lesson about the special traits God has given each of us.  Lesson plans this could go with include "God made me", "God loves me" or "Samson and Delilah"
    • Have the children complete the "ingredients" with traits they identify in themselves as gifts God has given them.
    • Have the children include a paragraph on the back of the recipe card that begins with "Thank you God for making me special, especially for ..."
  3. Younger Children:
    • Have an adult or older child print the ingredients for the younger child.
    • Glue your recipe card to the top of a piece of white paper.
    • Have the child draw a picture on the bottom of the paper illustrating one of their special ingredients
  4. Families:
    • Have the family each fill out one or two blanks on the recipe card for each member of the family.
    • This is a nice way to support each other and show what you admire about each other.
