    Love this idea! I am all about using visuals for an illusion while teaching children about God's word or teaching in general. I was looking for ideas regarding my lesson this wknd on Garbage in and Garbage out. What we watch, see and hear effect us as adults and children. Children's DVR's in their hearts are always recording. Switching this up a bit… Cold ice will be the garbage in and when I place the marshmallow on the child's tongue they won't be able to taste or feel it and that's when I will explain that this is what happens when we allow the garbage to seep into our hearts and minds. It is easier to allow the enemy to come in polluting our every being. I will then have the child drink warm water to bring their mouth temp back up and place another marshmallow on their tongue. They will now feel and taste the marshmallow. I will then explain this is how it is when we don't allow the garbage into our hearts and minds. Good spiritual food is for those who are strong in the Lord. Hebrews 5:14

    Thank you for this illustration. I’m going to use it tonight with my Church kids. I’m going to read the Good Samaritan story and then plan our teddys for cops (cops to give to kids) missions.

    When I first saw the picture on Pinterest, I had a different idea. You have a pile of marshmallows, which represents the child, and some ice cubes, which represent others. While your child is focusing on the marshmallows, the ice will begin to melt. Neglecting others can lead to them feeling down and less important.
