This month the toddlers explored stories of Samuel. Some possible activities:
*Reread stories of Samuel in storybook bibles. Stories of his earlier life are in Jesus Storybook Bible, or Jesus Calling Bible.
*Retell the story of Samuel hearing God’s voice as a child in your own words. Use your child’s toys to be different characters in the story and have them help you retell the story with the figurines.
Preschool-Parable of the Great Banquet: Matthew 22:1-14
Preschoolers spent June and July exploring Parables.
*I wonder how the Master felt when people were too busy to come to his banquet.
*I wonder how the Master felt when his table was full of guests.
*I wonder what food the Master served.
*I wonder if you would want to go to this banquet.
Even if you don’t have a preschooler, summer is great time to dive into a thematic Bible study as a family, so join us! Here are some resources to use while exploring Jesus’ parables:
Favorite Parables from the Bible by Nick Butterworth and Mick Inkpen
This book retells many of Jesus’ parables, and children will find the illustrations very humorous. We are using this book in the preschool classes to retell the weekly lessons.
