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: construction paper, crayons, band-aids, three stuffed animals or dolls
Grab one sheet of construction paper and cut out a large paper doll. Let your child draw a face on the doll and use a red crayon to draw several lines or circles to represent “boo-boos.” Use the three stuffed animals or dolls to help act out the story. Lay the paper doll on the floor and choose one stuffed animal to be the priest, Levite, and Samaritan. Have the first two stuffed animals walk by the paper doll without stopping. Then have the Samaritan stuffed animal stop and help the paper doll by placing Band-Aids over his hurts. After you have finished acting out the story, use these questions to talk with your child.
SUPPLIES: stuffed animal or doll, toilet paper
Grab a large stuffed animal or doll and a roll of toilet paper. Let your child bandage the stuffed animal by carefully wrapping it in toilet paper so the paper does not tear. Talk with your child about how he can care for others’ hurts by being gentle and kind, just as he is being gentle and kind with his stuffed animal so the toilet paper will not break.
SUPPLIES: sheet of construction paper, a crayon, scissors
Grab a sheet of construction paper and a crayon. Help your child trace his hand on the paper. As you are tracing his hand, talk to him about how he can help others, such as your neighbors, friends, or relatives. Once finished, cut out the hand and write one thing on it your child can do to serve others. Repeat again until you have several hands and ways to help others. Have your child help you post the hands in a familiar place so your family can remember to serve others because God wants us to show everyone His love.
