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, scissors, markers, band-aids
Cut out ten gingerbread-shaped people. Have your child color a few dots on each person and color one person completely. Act out the story using the gingerbread shaped people as the lepers. When Jesus heals the lepers have your child place a band-aid on each person. As the lepers walk away, have the one gingerbread shaped person he colored completely come back to say thank you. Once he has acted out the story, talk with your child using these questions:
SUPPLIES: Band-aids, paper, markers
While at the store, have your child choose a box of fun band-aids. At home, help your child draw a large heart. In the center of the heart write “Jesus has the power to heal because He is God.” Have your child place the fun band-aids all over the heart.
SUPPLIES: Cardstock or construction paper, markers, scissors, tape
Help your child draw 10 circles about the width of a finger on cardstock and cut them out. Have your child draw faces on each of the circles. Help your child put on their gloves, then tape one of the faces to each one of the fingers on the glove. Have your child act out the story using his newly made finger puppets.
