Summer 2022 Activities for Kids Focused on Faith, Fun, and Family

From Focus on the Family

Find fun and faith-friendly activities that you can do as a family to encourage your children’s walk with Jesus.

Researchers affirm what Christian families have known intuitively for years: Families that eat together, pray together and play together are stronger. But today’s crazy schedules and priorities make it more difficult for families to do this. So Focus on the Family has made it easier for you to invest a bit of time each week to have devotions with your family for the summer 2022 activities for kids.

As you raise your children in the way they should go, find the time to enjoy the journey. To assist you, we’ve included a few activities to help you nurture your children’s faith in fun ways.

Summer Activities for Kids: Crafts

Providing a summer activity for your kid can be as simple as providing space for them to develop and show their creativity. Explore these fun, easy crafts that also teach important biblical lessons about gratitude and love for your kids.

The Question Box

It’s never too early to get our kids thinking about the big questions of their faith. I filled a wooden box with cards that have challenging questions, such as “How do we know God exists?” “Is Jesus really God’s Son?” and “Are all religions equally true?” Several cards have answers on the back, while others are more open-ended, requiring kids to think and discuss the topic. My 8-year-old already has a practiced defense for many areas of her faith.

Gratitude Detectives

YOU ARE A GRATITUDE DETECTIVE. Here’s your mission: Take these tickets to church. BE on the lookout, and CATCH people in the act of doing GOOD—maybe your pastor, teacher, a friend or the person who brings doughnuts. Then fill in the tickets, and give them to people in your church to let them know they’re appreciated.
