New to the Kit or looking for helpful hints on how to use it? Check out the Kids Kit Tips and Tricks - Preschool Edition where we share detailed instructions about the resources below.
Our goal for preschool curriculum is to build a foundation of biblical knowledge so preschoolers will know the major stories of the Bible and how they fit together into God’s big story. Our curriculum is organized into 12 units and we teach the major stories of the Bible in mostly chronological order. Each week there is a Teaching Truth which is the most important thing we want kids to hear and learn about God and His Story that week.
Use these activities to keep talking about and applying what you learned this weekend throughout the week.
SUPPLIES: Memory Verse Song (on the Preschool Kids Kit page), something to use as a microphone
Take some time to practice our memory verse, Psalm 107:1, in a fun way. Sit in a circle on the floor. Give one person a fake microphone. You could use a pen, spatula, hairbrush, ice cream scoop, etc. Play the memory verse song and have the entire group sing along. Whoever has the microphone gets to stand in the center of the circle and be the Rock Star. When the song is over, pass the microphone to the next person. Repeat until everyone has had a chance to be the Rock Star.
SUPPLIES: Ingredients to make cookies or your favorite treat
As the early church grew in Acts 2, the people spent time together and shared what they had with one another. This included eating together! Bake cookies or your favorite treat with your child. Then share that treat with a neighbor, friend, or community group member, just like the early church did in the Bible.
SUPPLIES: Legos or Duplos
Build something with your child using Legos or other building blocks. Point out how the structure is small at the beginning. Then, start adding more and more blocks to your creation. Continue building onto it until you have a much larger structure than when you started. Explain to your child that this is how the church grew! It started with just a few people, just as you started with a few blocks. But just like your structure got larger and larger as you added more and more blocks, the church also grew bigger and bigger as more people came to know Jesus.
