Title: Celebrating God’s Gift of Laughter with Thankfulness

Lesson Objective: To teach young children about the importance of laughter as a gift from God and to encourage them to show thankfulness for this gift.

Good morning, children! Today, we are going to learn about a very special gift that God has given us. Do you know what it is? It’s the gift of laughter! Laughter is a wonderful thing that God has given us to help us feel happy and joyful.

Why is Laughter Important?
Laughter is important because it makes us feel good inside. When we laugh, it can make our hearts feel light and our spirits feel lifted. It brings joy to our lives and helps us to forget about any worries or troubles we may have.

Bible Verse:
In the Bible, in the book of Proverbs 17:22, it says, “A joyful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit dries up the bones.” This means that laughter is like good medicine for our hearts and helps to keep us feeling happy and healthy.

Showing Thankfulness for God’s Gift of Laughter:
We can show thankfulness to God for the gift of laughter by using it to bring joy to others. We can laugh with our friends and family, and we can also use our laughter to help cheer up someone who may be feeling sad or upset.

We can also thank God for the gift of laughter by being joyful and happy, even when things may not be going exactly as we had hoped. We can choose to find the humor in situations and not take life too seriously.

Let’s play a game where we take turns telling jokes to each other. Jokes are a great way to bring laughter and joy to others! After we finish the game, we can thank God for the gift of laughter by saying a prayer of thankfulness.

Today we have learned about God’s gift of laughter and how we can show thankfulness for this wonderful gift. Let’s always remember to find joy in laughter and use it to bring happiness to others. Let’s close our time together with a prayer, thanking God for the gift of laughter and asking Him to help us bring joy to others through our laughter. Amen.

Craft Idea

Craft Idea: God’s Gift of Laughter Magnet

– Small square pieces of cardboard or thick cardstock
– Colored markers or pens
– Small magnets
– Glue
– Scissors
– Stickers (optional)

1. Begin the lesson by discussing the importance of laughter and how it is a gift from God. Share some funny jokes or stories to lighten the mood and make the children laugh.

2. Hand out the small square pieces of cardboard or cardstock to each child and ask them to think of something that makes them laugh or something they are thankful for that brings them joy.

3. Instruct the children to decorate their cardboard squares with drawings, doodles, or written words that represent their chosen topic. Encourage them to be creative and use lots of bright colors to reflect the joy and laughter they are celebrating.

4. Once the cardboard squares are decorated, help the children glue a small magnet to the back of the cardboard. This will turn their artwork into a fun and functional magnet that can be displayed on the fridge or a magnetic board.

5. Optional: If you have stickers available, let the children use them to add extra decoration to their magnets.

6. As the children finish their magnets, have them share with the group what they chose to celebrate and why it brings them laughter and joy. Encourage them to express their thankfulness to God for the gift of laughter and the things that bring them happiness.

7. After the discussion, have the children take their magnets home as a reminder of the lesson and as a way to bring a smile to their faces each time they see it.

This craft is a simple and enjoyable way for young evangelical Christian children to celebrate God’s gift of laughter and to reflect on the things in their lives that bring them joy and thankfulness.
