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: Stuffed animals or baby dolls, washcloth, plastic bowl
Help your child gather several stuffed animals or baby dolls, a washcloth, and an empty plastic bowl. Let your child retell the story using the bowl, foot, and towel as props. When he is finished, talk with your child about the story using these questions.
SUPPLIES: Scissors, carboard, tinfoil, permanent marker, string, stapler or tape
Cut a sheriff star or police badge out of cardboard. Help your child help you cover it with aluminum foil so it is nice and shiny. On the front, use a permanent marker to draw a heart. Using a stapler or some tape, attach the badge to a piece of string. Let your child add embellishments or beads if he likes. Help him brainstorm ways to serve others while wearing the badge this week.
SUPPLIES: Hose, bucket, old rags and towels
On a nice day this week, head outside and let your child serve the family by helping them find things they can wash. Grab a hose, bucket, and old rags and help your child wash your outdoor furniture, car, windows, toys, or bikes. Remind your child that Jesus is the perfect example of serving others and He wants us to follow His example and serve others, too.
