For children as well as adults, keeping our attitude in check can definitely be a challenge. But with God’s strength and the Bible’s guidance, we can learn to maintain a Godly and God-pleasing attitude in all situations. These free object lessons on attitude will help kids discover the importance of having a joyful, grateful attitude, no matter the circumstances.

Use these resources in a variety of settings, from Sunday school and children’s church to vacation Bible school and camp. In age-appropriate ways, kids will discover why our attitude reflects our heart and even can help direct other people to Jesus.

This assortment of free object lessons on attitude includes:

1. Children’s Sermon

With this prepared message, titled “The Bee-Attitudes,” children learn that true happiness is found only in Jesus. Contrary to what the world teaches, happiness isn’t a feeling that results from our possessions or accomplishments. Instead, it’s an attitude based on what—and Who—we have in our heart. Like the bees God made, we can “buzz” happily through life because Jesus loves us so much that he died and rose again for us.

2. Coloring Page

Have children color this illustration of Jesus giving the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5:1-12). They can display the finished drawing as a reminder to have Godly and God-pleasing attitudes each and every day.

Keep your little bees busy with this word search. Kids need to spot 15 words from the Bible passage about the Beatitudes.
