Our goal in Watermark Kids has always been to partner with parents to train up the next generation of fully devoted followers of Christ. Right now, partnering with you looks a little different, and we want to remind you that you are not alone. Introducing the Watermark Kids Kit! This kit includes curriculum for both preschool and elementary-age kids. Each week you will find a list of resources, including a small group lesson that we have adapted for use at home, a teaching video from one of our staff team members talking through that week’s story from the Bible, activities to put the lesson into practice, and even links to songs and music videos so you can sing together as a family. Before you get started, check out the video below for suggestions on how to use the resources provided.
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. We teach the major stories of the Bible in mostly chronological order, and each week there is a Teaching Truth we want kids to hear and learn about God and His Story.
Our elementary curriculum builds on the biblical foundation laid for kids in preschool. We want them to see the excellent character of our all-powerful God and why He is the hero of every story. We do that by looking at 36 godly character traits – one per month – with weekly Finish Lines that teach kids about God, His Word, and how He can help us reflect His character to the world. Our character trait for April is GOODNESS.
Easter Sunday often sneaks up on us and it's here and gone before we know it. In order to better equip our families for this season, we have created 5 days worth of resources you can do at home this week. Each day there is a story to read from the Jesus Storybook Bible that took place during Easter week, as well as some simple teaching you can go through with your kids. There is also a daily hands-on activity or craft that will help reinforce truth from God's Word and put what you just learned into practice. Because the stories are chronological, it's best to do the activities in order, but feel free to just choose the one that works best for your family. We pray that whatever you choose, it will help you and your family prepare your hearts for Easter this year.
