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.
Just like Jesus trusted God, His Father, in our story, you can help your child practice how to trust through a game. You can do this activity outside or in a large room in your house. Blindfold your child and then lead her through your yard or house. Tell her when to step over things, help her crawl under branches, or direct her around tables when needed. If you have more than one child, you can have them take turns being blindfolded and leading each other around.
SUPPLIES: Paper, markers, scissors, string
Add on to your Easter mobile that you started a few weeks ago. Help your child cut a square from a piece of green paper and let him decorate it like a garden. He can draw trees, plants, grass, and flowers on your square. You could also go outside and collect some items, such as leaves, flowers, or sticks, and help your child glue them to the square. Attach your garden to your Easter mobile using string, and let it remind you that Jesus trusted His Father when He prayed in the garden.
Take your family to a local park. You could invite community group members and other friends to join you. Set out chairs and blankets and pray together, just like Jesus did in the garden. Take time to thank God for His sacrifice in sending Jesus to die for us. Thank God that He is always trustworthy, and ask Him to help you trust Him like Jesus did.
