This Sunday, I get to teach the littles at our church about sowing seeds in good soil. This is the craft I have planned to go with the Bible story.

Sowing Seeds in Good Soil
Matthew 13: 3-23
Copies of a simple scene that includes a path, a rocky area, a weeded area, and an area of good soil
Glue (bottles of white glue preferred for this)
Beans or Seeds
I drew out a simple scene with a path, some weeded area, a rocky area, and a nice big patch of good soil. I traced them all in marker then colored with crayon. I made color copies for each child.
I will swirl glue onto the copied page for each child as pictured below.
Allow the children to smear the glue well over the picture. I have to admit that I had a lot of fun doing this for the sample craft. I imagine the littles will like it, too.
Add beans or seeds all over the picture just as the farmer in Jesus’s parable. This is a good time to remind the littles (or to gauge their memory) of what happened to the seeds that fell in each of the places.
