1 Corinthians 3:11 "For no one
can lay any foundation other than
the one already laid, which is
Jesus Christ." (NIV); Matthew
7:24-29 (Parable of the house
built on the rock)
Have each child create a house out
of Lego. Tell some children
they have built on the rock and

When you discuss the part of the
story about the house built on
sand, allow those who have built
on sand to know their house down.
- Guess How Many Legos are in
- Drop the Lego in the bottle
(like drop the clothespin in the

gets a prize for something.)
- Pin the LEGO on the...LEGO.
Create a landscape with an
integral piece missing, such as a
boat's deep-sea diver or a
castle's flag, and, with eyes
closed, place the piece as near as
possible to the correct place.
For decorations use primary color
plates, napkins, and balloons.
