On Wednesday nights at church, I teach of class of 3 and 4 year olds..and they are a mess! Last night, before telling the story of the blind beggar, we had a discussion about our five senses. Quite the concept for these little guys. We talked about the eyes that we see with and how we hear with our ears and God gave us noses to smell. Eyes. Ears. Noses. No problem.
Then I tried to talk about taste. Oh boy. Our discussion went something like this:
Me: Can anyone tell me what God gave us to taste things with….to find out if something tasted yummy or not so yummy?
Me: You know, if I had a drink and I wanted to know if it tasted sweet and yummy, would I put it in my ear? Noooo. What would I use?
One three year old cutie: A straw?!
Me: Well, yes, I could use a straw….but where would I put the straw?
The entire class in unison: The cup!!
Yes, indeedy, the cup. I admit defeat – they are too cute for me!
