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: Two pieces of white paper, scissors, crayons, stickers, hole punch, ribbon, yarn, or string, a hanger
Help your child make a mobile to remind him about what heaven is like. Start by helping your child fold the two pieces of paper in half, and then half again. This will give you four boxes per page. Cut the boxes apart. Using six of the boxes, have your child write one letter of the word “HEAVEN” on one side of each of the boxes. On one side of the boxes, have a grown-up write the following phrases for the letters they correspond with:
H is for Happy E is for Eternal Life A is for Angels V is for Very Beautiful E is for Every Believer N is for No Evil
Let your child decorate each box with crayons, stickers, and jewels. Once the boxes are decorated, punch a hole in the top of each. Thread ribbon or yarn through the hole and then tie them to a hanger in the order so it spells the word HEAVEN. Remind your child that the best part about heaven is that God will be there!
SUPPLIES: Shoe box, wrapping paper, crayons, stickers, jewels, cardstock, scissors, tape, small toy chair and figure or Legos
Grab an empty shoe box and cover the outside with shiny wrapping paper. Let your child decorate it with jewels, crayons, and stickers. On the inside of the box have your child decorate with rainbow colors. To make the gates of heaven, cut a piece of white cardstock to fit the opening of the box, leaving a little on each edge so you can tape it to each side. Cut the card stock in half down the middle and let your child decorate it. Once he has finished, tape the sides of the gates to the box so it will open in the middle. Inside the box, place a dollhouse size chair and a figure to represent God sitting on his throne, or have your child make a chair and figure out of Legos. Once the box is finished, talk with your child about what the Bible says heaven will be like and ask him these questions:
Say this chant with your child, having him fill in the blank with friends or family members names.
Heaven is a wonderful place It’s full of love and full of God’s grace In heaven, there will be no wrong And I want to take __ along
