Sabbath Activity Ideas for Children

Sabbath Activity Ideas for Children

An important lesson I’ve learned about the Sabbath is that there’s really no such thing as a Sabbath “cannot.” The Sabbath day is like any other day in one way—I can use the 24 hours however I want. And like any other day, those choices invite God closer to me or keep Him at a distance. Time and time again, I’ve found that the best feelings come from choosing Him every chance I get—especially on His holy day. I’ve also learned that obedience yields the greatest blessings. One of the Ten Commandments is “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy” (Exodus 20:8). We can choose to make the Sabbath a day of “can”. There are many things we can do.

Ideas from Michelle Torsak:

3. Draw and deliver pictures to elderly people in your neighbourhood.
