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.

More ways to have a great week of worship...
Use these activities to keep talking about and applying what you learned this weekend throughout the week.
1. Trust the Leader
Place a blindfold over your child’s eyes or have him just close his eyes. Have him place his hands on your waist so you can guide him around from one end of the room to the other. Switch roles and have him guide you. After the activity, talk about how the person blindfolded had to trust the person leading because the blindfolded person could not see where he was going. Talk about the story of the 12 Spies and how only Joshua and Caleb trusted God using these questions.
- What good things did the spies see in the land? (The land was beautiful and had good food.)
- Why were some of the spies scared? (There were large people and big cities in the land.)
- Which two spies trusted God? (Caleb and Joshua)
- What happened to the Israelites because most of them did not trust God? (They had to wander in the desert for 40 years.)
- Can we trust God no matter what happens? (Yes! God is trustworthy.)
2. I Spy
Play a game of “I Spy” with your child. You can play in your house, outside, or even while readying a book. After playing the game ask your child what types of things she saw. You could even let her draw pictures of what she found. Remind her that Moses sent 12 spies into the Promised Land and ask her if they can remember what the spies found. Talk about how the spies, except Joshua and Caleb, were afraid and did not trust God to protect them. Most of the Israelites believed the spies and became very afraid. Because they did not trust that God was all-powerful and would give them the land He promised, the Israelites had to stay in the desert for 40 more years.
3. Hidden Spies
SUPPLIES: Popsicle sticks, marker
Grab 12 popsicle sticks and help your child draw a simple face on each one and number them 1-12. Hide the popsicle sticks around the room and let your child find them. Once all 12 popsicle sticks are found, separate two from the group. Talk about how 10 spies were scared, but two spies, Joshua and Caleb, trusted God. Remind your child that God is always trustworthy.
