CTR B Lesson 14 The Word of Wisdom
This is a great lesson to come back to after baby, because frankly, all I want to eat is Junk, junk, junk! Anyone else have the problem while nursing? Anyway…I’m doing good and am happy to be back. Starting slow and steady. Now…the lesson
Lesson 14 The Word of Wisdom Helps Outline:
Here’s what you’ll find in this post:
- Happy Face/Sad Face activity
- Happy Face handout (3 options for this one)
- Jumping Food game idea
1. Happy Face/Sad Face activity
I’ve made the activity described in the manual. Simply cut out the happy and sad faces (and their mouths) and the food. (‘ve placed the food and bad items on a little grid for easy slicing–you’ll get little food cards when you’re done cutting) Bad things go in the sad face, good things go in the happy face. You can put these faces on a bag if you like, a box, or popsicle sticks. OR HOLD THE SAD ONE OVER THE GARBAGE SO THE BAD THINGS ARE THROWN AWAY!!
FACES- THIS IS just a preview, below you will find a PDF link.

2. Happy Face Handout
You can keep this idea simple or have a little more fun. Here’s a preview of the Face i’ve created for kids to take home:
Simple Idea: cut out, kids color, done!

I put together this masterpiece diagram to help you see my other ideas for this face. Both of these would use a smile for each child and some of the food cards that were used in the first lesson idea. Here we go. (I’m trying to see if this explanation will save me time over making movies)
To see the diagram bigger, just click on it!
NOTE! For the cup idea, you may need to copy my smile face and resize it on your own to accommodate your cup if you’re a stickler about it fitting perfectly.
3. Jumping Food Game Idea
Have the kids stand up. Call out or hold up a food item. If it is a healthy item the kids should be able to jump very high and fast. If it is a poor choice (pounds of chocolate…NOTE TO SELF) then they will barely move, act sluggish. It is a test of sorts to see if they know which foods are healthy and which are not. If they jump up for candy, have them try again! The purpose of this game is to reiterate that good foods sustain us, help us JUMP, while poor foods make us drag, feel sluggish!
