Faithful Families Resources for 19 November 2017

Children need models more than they need critics.

Family Closeness
Tumbling Tower
Collect 10 to 20 empty boxes from your recycling bin (or other empty packages like juice bottles or egg cartons). Make sure they are completely empty and seal the topics with sticky tape. The first person picks a box and sets it in place. The next person puts a box on top of it and so on. Keep going until the tower falls over. The person who topples the tower is out and a new round begins.

  • What words do you like? Why do you like them? Is it the sound or what they mean or how they feel when you say them?
  • What is your favourite saying?
  • What words do you most like to hear?

With your family read: Matthew 25.14-30
(for a way of explaining/talking about this reading with children look at

Questions for Discussion:
  • What do you think of this story?
  • Why did one of the servants bury his talent?
  • What do you think is the message of this story?

Prayer and Celebration
North, South, East, West
Get a compass and a map and work out where North, South, East and West are. Find out what communities or countries are in those directions. Try and find out some of the needs of those places. When you pray face each of the different directions and pray for the needs of the places in those directions. This is something you might do over several weeks.

Bonus Family Activity
Dance Night
Rent a dance DVD and learn a new dance together.
