Candy Corn Trinity Bible Lesson

Print

In A Nutshell

We love colorful candy corn in the fall and were thrilled to come up with the idea to use this seasonal candy to help explain the Trinity. The trinity is a sometimes challenging lesson to teach small children, and bringing down to the level of a piece of candy makes it easier to grasp.

Scripture

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Matthew 28:19 (NIV)

What You Will Need

  • White paper
  • Orange paper
  • Yellow paper
  • Glue
  • Candy corn
  • Plastic knife
  • Bag of candy corn

Preparation

  • Print the Candy Corn Trinity Base on White paper
  • Print the three parts of the trinity on white, yellow and orange paper as indicated.

Instructions

  • Hold up a piece of candy corn. Can anyone tell me what this is? (candy corn). Tear off the top color and hold up that piece. Ask: What is this? (Its still candy corn). Tear off the next color and repeat the questions. Now lay all three pieces on the table. Lay another whole piece of candy corn beside them. Ask: Is it true to say that all of these are candy corn? (yes). Ask: But are they all the same? (no). How are they different? (different colors, different sizes, different shapes). Explain: So even though they are all different shapes and sizes and colors, they are all still candy corn.
  • Read Matthew 28:16-20
  • Jesus died on the cross for each and every one of us, but that wasn’t the end of His life. After the crucifixion, what happened in three days? (He arose and the tomb was empty). He didn’t go to heaven immediately. In fact, He visited His disciples.
  • What He told them was, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,”. Who was He talking about?
  • Who is the Father? (God)
  • Who is the Son? (Jesus.)
  • What is the Holy Spirit? (God living in our hearts)
  • All three of these are separate, but at the same time they are one. How can that be?
  • Let's go back to our piece of candy corn. Hand out the trinity candy corn base. As you talk about each part of the trinity, had that piece to the children for them to glue to their sheet. All of the pieces are different, but they are all still candy corn. When we look at the holy trinity of God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit, they are three separate things but they are also all one thing, God. We have the God that created you and me and everything we see. God came to the earth in human form as Jesus. When Jesus died for us on the cross, we were given forgiveness, and when we accepted God into our heart, we are filled with the Holy Spirit.
