Kids Activity: The Lost Coin Parable

parable of the lost coin

“Or what woman, having ten silver coins, if she loses one coin, does not light a lamp, sweep the house, and search carefully until she finds it? And when she has found it, she calls her friends and neighbors together, saying, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found the piece which I lost!’ Likewise, I say to you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” Luke 15:8-10

This is a beautiful parable that Jesus shared to explain to the people how much God cares for His people! What a great story to share with kids so that they can understand how much they are loved.

A great activity to do with kids when teaching these verses is provided by Danielle’s Place.  Hide ten chocolate golden coins around the room.  Tell the kids to begin looking.  What a fun way of making the verses come alive.
