Following Jesus

Read “Abuelo’s Shoe Shop” on page 4. Whenever we make a wrong choice, we can repent to help us stay strong like Abuelo’s shoes. Part of repenting is trying to be more like Jesus. Make these shoes to remind you to follow Jesus!

  1. Help everyone trace a pair of their shoes on colored paper. Cut out the footprints.

  2. Cut two strips of colored paper for each person. Tape or glue the strips to each footprint for a strap.

  3. Have everyone write on their shoes one way they want to follow Jesus.

  4. Keep these by your real shoes for a week. When you put your shoes on, remember to follow Jesus!

“Donut” Give Up!

When you make a mistake, you can always do better tomorrow. Make these donuts to remind you that Jesus can always help you do better! Be sure to get an adult’s help.

1 can refrigerated biscuit dough

oil for frying

powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar

  1. Pour enough oil in a frying pan to cover the bottom. Heat on medium until it sizzles.

  2. Use your finger to poke and stretch a hole in the middle of each piece of biscuit dough.

  3. Fry the donuts about a minute on each side until golden brown. Set them on a paper towel–lined plate to cool.

  4. Sprinkle the donuts with sugar, and enjoy!
