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. Burning Bush
SUPPLIES: Small branch, construction paper, tape, jar or bowl
Find a small tree branch to serve as your “bush.” Have your child help you tear out “flames” from red, yellow, and orange construction paper. You can tape them to the branches of your bush and “plant” it in a jar, coffee can, or bowl. Use it as a centerpiece for your table this week and as a starting point to discuss the story at meal times.
2. Baby Moses Snack
SUPPLIES: Apple, peanut butter or honey, grape or blueberry, cheerio, cream cheese or frosting, graham cracker, blue food coloring
During snack time, help your child create Moses in a basket using food. Cut an apple in half and put peanut butter or honey on it so it is sticky enough to carry “baby Moses.” Use a grape, blueberry, or small marshmallow to be baby Moses and then place a cheerio as his head. For the river, mix cream cheese or white frosting with a little blue food coloring together and smear it on a large graham cracker. Place baby Moses in his basket on the graham cracker, so Moses can float down the river. While your child eats his snack talk about this story using the following questions:
- Who put Moses in a basket? (His mother)
- Why was Moses put in a basket in the river? (To protect him from Pharaoh who wanted to kill all the baby boys)
- Who found Moses and kept him as her son? (Pharaoh’s daughter)
- What did Moses do after he left Egypt? (He became a shepherd.)
- Who was with Moses wherever he went? (God was with him.)
3. Our Journey
Go on a journey through the house or the neighborhood. Stop along the way and ask, “Is God with us here?” Let your child answer, “Yes! God is with us!” Just like God was with Moses when he was floating in the basket or being a shepherd in the wilderness, God is with us wherever we go. You could also ask this question at random times throughout the week to keep reminding your family that God is always with us.
