Halloween Object Lesson: Make Pumpkin Pancakes With Children

As you add the pumpkin, say: This canned pumpkin comes from a real, live pumpkin that grew in the ground. The pumpkin died to become our snack. But we’re taking a dead pumpkin and turning it into something wonderful—and yummy!

Spray the pan or griddle with cooking spray, if needed. Then pour the batter onto the pan. Flip the pancakes when bubbles form. Serve pancakes with syrup.

The Debrief

As kids eat, read Romans 6:11.

Ask:

  • How does this Bible verse make you think about death?
  • What do you think it means to be dead to the power of sin?

Say: Our pumpkin died, but it became something wonderful. That’s like what Jesus does in our lives. Through Jesus, we’re dead to the power of sin. And Jesus transforms us into life! You can honor the death of sin this Halloween by living for Jesus.
