Creative Ideas ~ For every age!
Plant a garden!
As a family, choose a nice, sunny spot in the yard (or a nice, roomy pot in a sunny window) to make your garden, and pick out seeds for your favorite vegetables or flowers. Then, practice perseverance together as you water, weed, and wait for fruit!
Don’t forget to take a picture of your family garden and share it on Instagram using the hashtag #1PeterSS!

Sing “Stand Up, Stand Up For Jesus”!
This hymn may be very familiar to you, but try to pay attention to the words like you’re hearing them for the very first time. How does the last verse relate to what you’ve been learning from 1 Peter 5?

Write yourself a reminder to stand firm!
Copy down an encouraging Bible verse and tack it to your bedroom wall; draw a picture that inspires you to press on and put it up on the fridge; or grab a sharpie and write “stand firm” on the bottoms of your shoes (with your parents’ permission, of course). Whenever you’re feeling discouraged or tempted to give up, these little reminders will help you persevere!
Take a picture of your reminder and share it on Facebook to encourage others who are studying 1 Peter! Simply use the hashtag #1PeterSS.

Apply what you’ve learned about God!
This week finishes up the very last chapter of 1 Peter—good work! Take some time to think about what you’ve learned about God over the past 11 weeks. (It might even help to look back over some of your Day 10 Diagrams.) What are some of your favorite characteristics that you saw? And how do you think knowing these things about God can help you stand firm in your faith?

Eat a piece of fruit together!
Sit your little one down in the kitchen and enjoy a delicious (and healthy!) snack of apples, oranges, pears, grapes, bananas… or whatever kind of fruit you prefer! While you eat, talk about why farmers need patience when growing food.
Capture your snack time on camera share it on Instagram using the hashtag #1PeterSS!
