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: As needed per task
Each morning this week, help your child think of one person he can show God’s love to that day and come up with one simple way he can serve that person. Some examples might include helping a sibling clean up her toys, making a card for a neighbor, or baking treats and sharing them with others.
Go out on a walk with your child and talk about how Ruth chose to put Naomi first and traveled far with her and that God took care of them. Have your child close his eyes and take your hand. Help him walk safely for several feet and then switch places and let him guide you. As you walk, discuss with your child how we can trust God to always take care of us, even when we are in new or maybe scary circumstances. Review the story of Ruth and Naomi using these questions.
1. Did Ruth choose to put herself first or Naomi first?
2. Did God take care of Ruth and Naomi? How?
3. How can we show God’s love by putting others first?
SUPPLIES: Miscellaneous items for an obstacle course
Play follow the leader, just as Ruth followed Naomi. Make an obstacle course using pillows, chairs, stools, or whatever you have so your child can climb over, under, and around obstacles. Take turns being the leader (Naomi) and the follower (Ruth).
