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 Needed: Stuffed animals
Help your child gather some of their stuffed animals. Divide them into 3 groups and place each group in different places around the room. Talk with your child about how Paul’s life was changed when he met Jesus. Paul decided to go on trips telling others about Jesus’ love and forgiveness. Pretend to be Paul and travel around the room telling others (the stuffed animals) about Jesus and His love for them. Paul sometimes traveled in a boat, so you could act like you are rowing a boat as you go from one place to the next. Explain that just as Paul told others about Jesus, we can tell others about Jesus, too!
Supplies Needed: Globe or map of the world
Jesus wanted everyone all over the world to know about Him. That is why Paul travelled to lots of different places. Remind your child that people who follow Jesus are called Christians. Look at a globe or map of the world and explain that there are Christians all around the world. Have your child close her eyes and then put a finger on the globe/map. Read the name of the country she pointed to and then pray for the Christians that live there. Pray those Christians would keep telling more and more people about Jesus.
Supplies Needed: Banana, strawberry, pretzel sticks
Cut a banana and a strawberry in half. The banana will be the bottom of the boat and the strawberry will be a sail. Use a pretzel stick to attach the strawberry sail to the banana boat. Remind your child that Paul sometimes used a boat to travel to different places so he could tell others about Jesus.
