Welcome to lesson one – God made everything. Thank you for having the desire to help your child explore the Bible and enjoy God. Each week this coming year I will be producing one lesson to do with my three-year-old son, and it is my pleasure to share this with you.
This weeks lesson covers the account of creation taken from Genesis 1. I would encourage you to sit down with your child and the Bible and either read the story to them or paraphrase it in a way that they will understand.
Personally, I believe that this is the best way as it introduces your child to
That said, there are great resources available to help children understand the Bible and where possible I will include a link to help. This week I used this video from Saddleback kids. It’s 3:48 minutes long
Please pick and choose the activities that follow to suit your needs. Split them throughout the week to reinforce the lesson or mix activities for a selected time slot.
Please think of these resources as a toolkit.
Each activity hopefully supports the Biblical lesson and education development. During this weeks craft activity, you will need to allow some time for paint to dry. Either paint plates at the start of the session, use other activities to fill in drying time or split over different days.
