Family Blueprint New Testament #2: Mary's Visitation

(A shelled hard-boiled egg and a salad dressing bottle illustrate that God can accomplish great things!)

Weekly Scripture:
Luke 1:26-56

“Mary’s Visitation”

God can accomplish great things, even in us!

Live the Lesson: Egg in a Bottle
You will need one clear salad dressing bottle or milk bottle with a small neck opening, one hard-boiled egg with the shell removed, boiling water, a funnel, and an oven mitt to handle the hot bottle.

Now in front of the class, put the boiled egg on top of the bottle and demonstrate that the egg cannot fall into the bottle. It is impossible. However, when Gabriel told Mary she would be the mother of Baby Jesus, even though she was not yet married to Joseph and had never been alone with him, she chose to believe God can do anything. Today, we too choose to believe that the egg can fall into this bottle.

Put the funnel on top of the salad dressing bottle and fill the bottle with the boiling water. Whish the water around inside the bottle and then pour out the boiling water. Immediately, put the hard-boiled egg with its shell removed on top of the bottle and watch closely. The egg will now be sucked into the bottle with such an incredible sound. Hooray! (To remove the egg, hold the bottle upside down and blow into the bottle for a while and the egg will drop out from the increase in air pressure).

Memory Verse: “For with God nothing will be impossible.” Luke 1:37

Dear Lord, please help us to believe You can accomplish great things in our lives, if we surrender to you.

Living the Life:
This week share with your children something you accomplished by the grace of God.

  1. Oh this looks COOL ! My boys would love to do this. I have to find a bottle with a narrow neck. That will maybe happen through my MIL. ( she lives next door) Thanks for visiting my SSiC ( Sweet Sister in Christ)

    God Bless in Him<><

  2. Good Morning Mary!

    I have heard that juice bottles will work for this too. I have never tried one, but I don't see why not.

    I enjoyed my visit and was delighted to see you dropped by. I hope you boys have a blast while remembering God's Word!

    Blessings to you dear sister!

  3. Hi Julianne, neat study to go with the experiment. We did a similar one a few months ago and put it on YouTube

    Hope you are having a great day!

  4. Thanks Denise for the video link. That is cool you put it on Youtube. I thought about sharing how to do it with a flame, but considered too many Sunday School teachers and families would feel it unsafe, so I opted on sharing the one with boiling water (as if that can't hurt us too). LOL!

    Good to see you, thanks for dropping by sis!
