Being a Christian is like being a pumpkin.

I love when we can do something hands on and visual to help the kids learn some awesome truths from the Bible.

My mom showed me these verses the other day so I decided to make a cute little picture that you can use to walk through these verses with your family.

Grab a pumpkin and invite your neighbors over!

WARNING! This may get messy, but that’s how life is sometimes, isn’t it?

God Picks You From The Patch And Brings You In

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” John 15:5

Look at the stages as the pumpkin grows on the vine before it is ready to be picked!

One of my favorite things about Maggie is how she always slows down to study and appreciate God’s creation.

Then He Washes All of the Dirt off of You

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here.” 2 Corinthians 5:17

He Opens You Up and Scoops Out all of the Yucky Stuff. He Removes the Seeds of Doubt, Hate, and Greed

“For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin.” Romans 6:6

Then He Carves You a New Smiling Face

“My lips will shout for joy when I sing praise to you—I whom you have delivered.” Psalm 71:23

He Puts His Light Inside You to Shine for all the World to See

“In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:16

Certain members of the family wanted to carve puppies and a cat. 🙂

Look at those smiles!
