I used ten scriptures to remind the children how much Jesus loves them (and me). Then we went on a scavenger hunt to find (earthly) treasure.
Each scripture had one word that took them to the next clue.
If I had to do it all over again....I would have picked short scriptures. I couldn't finish one before they were off to the next. My plan was to discuss and then move. So basically I yelled "HEY COME BACK HERE!!" the whole time.
Jesus tells us not to focus on worldly treasures, but when chocolate is involved it really becomes hard to follow the rules.
We love because He first loved us. -1 John 4:10
Love is a powerful emotion.
