It’s that time of the month again. We’re sharing what we’ve been up to and this really fun Gifts from the Holy Spirit Knowledge Activity for Little Kids was definitely a blast! And of course, this is just one more fun idea to add to your list of VBS Crafts & Activities.
This month focuses on one very important truth, God is the Holy Spirit. If you missed our last post, then definitely check it out! We finished up our Raining Fire Headband Craft and then got to work on this adorable activity.

A huge thanks to Experience Early Learning (formerly Mother Goose Time) for providing us with their Experience Preschool curriculum for free in exchange for sharing our honest and authentic stories resulting from our personal experiences. It’s been such a huge blessing to us! As always, my opinions on awesome stuff for little kids are 100% my own.
Keep in mind that all preschoolers do things in their own time and on their own terms. What one is ready for, another might not be. Please use your best mama judgement when planning activities for your little kids.
And you know what? They’ve obviously thought of everything because they offer a Christian supplement too! Did I mention that we’re kinda in love with it? I’m sure that isn’t exactly a surprise, though.
What gifts have you received? What gifts do you think the Holy Spirit gives you?
The seven gifts from the Holy Spirit are wisdom, understanding, counsel, knowledge, fortitude, piety, and fear of the Lord. Our curriculum shares an activity for each, but today we’re focusing on knowledge.
It was much easier for baby girl to work with the blocks than it was the ball, so we spent quite a bit of time exploring action/reaction scenarios with her sensory blocks.
Knowledge Activity for Little Kids
What you’ll need
Here’s how to do it
Ask: What do you think happens if you throw a ball up in the sky?
- Explain that everything we do has a consequence. When we do something kind, it makes a person feel encouraged and happy. If we do something mean, it makes a person sad or lonely.
- Take turns tossing a ball and catching it as it falls down.
- Explore other action/reaction scenarios. For example, a tower of blocks and take it off the top block. What happens? Now take out the middle block. What happens?
- When God is in charge of our lives, everything has purpose. If we decide to ignore God and his desire for us, it is like removing a block from the middle of the tower – it can make our lives fall apart.
Explain: With the gift of knowledge, we understand the meaning of God, his plan for each of us and the consequences of our actions.
It was absolutely wonderful to explore this Gifts from the Holy Spirit Knowledge Activity with both the little guy and baby girl today. I’m sure that your little kids will enjoy it as well!
