Bible Alive! Tuesday: Kindness Gives Us Warm Fuzzies

This morning the kiddos and I discussed
what KINDNESS is
after reading
Jeremiah 9:23-24:

This is what the Lord says:

"Let not the wise boast of their wisdome
or the strong boast of their strength
or the rich boast of their riches,
but let the one who boasts boast about this:
that they have the understanding to know me,
that I am the Lord,
who exercises kindness,
justice and righteosness and righteosness on earth,
for in these I delight,"
declares the Lord.


We discussed ways that we can show kindness to others,
like doing chores for our siblings
or giving unexpected hugs to each other.

I then told the kiddos how when you do something kind
for someone else,
you are giving them a
"warm fuzzie" feeling...


So, to encourage acts of kindness
between my kiddos,
I had them create...
..."Warm Fuzzies" Jars.

(I was inspired by THIS post over at
Spell Outloud...)


I gathered up three old Parmesan Cheese containers
from our recycling bin and labeled them with
Then each of the kiddos continued to decorate their jars......with other labeling stickers.

I then set out......a huge bowl of "warm fuzzies"
(aka cotton balls)
on the dining room table.

Throughout the next few days,
whenever the kiddos "catches" a sibling
performing an act of kindness......he/she can put a "warm fuzzie"
in their jar.

Hopefully, by the end of the week......their jars will be full!


So, how have you been making the Bible come
Alive! for your kiddos this week?

Please link up your ideas below...


  1. What a great way to let them see the warm fuzzies!

  2. I love fuzzy jars. I had one when I was teaching.

  3. Cute idea! I love systems where you're catching children being good rather than bad. :-)
