Playdough People


Have a selection of playdough set out on the table with the following instructions printed or written out:

“Spend some time making a playdough person. How creative can you get?

As you build your person think about how easy the playdough is to mould and shape.

The bible describes God as a potter and each of us as the clay used to make the pot. How easily do we allow God to shape and mould us?

Take a moment to confess to God any areas of your life in which you have been unwilling to change.

Pray that God will help us to be willing to be shaped and changed to become the people we are called to be”

Resources needed:

  • Playdough
  • Printed instructions
  • Printed bible verses (optional).
