Fruit of the Spirit

Buy fake fruit and label all of them a fruit of the spirit as followed. Play a hot potato with the fruit. The children have to call out the fruit before they pass it. Start out with a few fruit and add more as you play.

Love-Strawberry (fruit of love)
Joy-Pineapple (think of the happy smell)
Peace-Watermelon (piece on the words)
Longsuffereing (patience)-Lemon (you have to eat it slowly)
Gentleness-Peach (soft)
Goodness-Banana (child's favorite fruit)
Faith-Cherry (two together on the stem)
Meekness (kindness)-Grapes (good to share)
Temperance (self-control)-Apple (Garden of Eden)

Note: If you have a Hobby Lobby near you they get their VBS crafts in around this time. Check it out because they always have things you can use all year round for various stories and subjects.
