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: Paper or poster board, crayons, markers, glitter, stickers, tape
Grab a poster board or piece of construction paper and let your child decorate one side with markers, crayons, paint, or whatever you may have on hand. Once the decorating is complete, lay the poster board flat and start rolling from one corner. As you or your child rolls the poster board, make sure it takes the shape of a cone and the decorated part is on the outside. Tape the edge of the poster board so that it stays in the shape of a cone. Let your child use the megaphone to share God’s message with others by saying, “God promised to send a Savior,” “Jesus loves you,” or “God always keeps His promises.”
SUPPLIES: Paper, crayons, markers, envelope, etc.
Help your child write a letter or draw a picture for a friend, neighbor, or family member to share God’s promise with them. Using a sheet of paper write ‘God promised to send a Savior’ on it and let your child decorate it around it. Seal it in an envelope and let your child decorate the outside. Deliver the good news letter in person or mail it.
SUPPLIES: Flashlight, stuffed animals or dolls
Remind your child that Isaiah was God’s special messenger. One of the messages God gave Isaiah was that He promised to send a Savior. This Savior would be a light a rescue people out of a dark world. Help your child set some stuffed animals or dolls around a room. Give your child a flashlight and then turn off as many lights in the room as your child is comfortable with. Let your child use the flashlight to find and “save” all of the toys that were in the dark.
