MEMORY VERSE: “I know that you can do anything.” Job 42:2a (NLT)
BIBLE STORY: Feeding 5,000 I Mark 6:31-44

During the worship experience this weekend, we played a fun game to help us remember that Jesus can do anything. Play this game with your toddler to help them think about some of the amazing things Jesus can do!

Read each example from the list below, and encourage your child to shout, “Jesus can do anything!” if they know that it’s something Jesus can do.

Say, “Can Jesus… ”

  • Feed a HUGE crowd of people with just five loaves of bread and two fish?”
  • Walk on water?”
  • Make a storm stop just by speaking to it?”
  • Heal people who are sick?”
  • Heal people so they could walk when they weren’t able to walk before?”
  • Heal people who can’t see?” 

Continue the activity, choosing a different example each time. After the activity, say, “That’s right! The Bible tells us that Jesus did all those things. Remember, Jesus is God’s Son, and He can do anything! Who can do anything?” Encourage your toddler to say, “Jesus can do anything!”

During the worship experience this weekend, we sang a song to remind us that Jesus can do anything. Sing the song with your toddler at home!

Jesus Can Do Anything (to the tune, “Mary Had a Little Lamb”)

Jesus can do anything,
anything, anything.
Jesus can do anything.
Oh, yes He can!

Repeat a few times, or as long as your toddler is interested. Say, “Great job! Who can do anything?” Encourage your toddler to say, “Jesus can do anything!”

WE’RE LEARNING… Jesus can do anything.
MEMORY VERSE: “I know that you can do anything.” Job 42:2a (NLT)
BIBLE STORY: Feeding 5,000 I Mark 6:31-44

This month we’re learning, “Jesus can do anything.” In December, our toddlers learned that Jesus is God’s Son. This month, they’ll learn that because Jesus is God’s Son, He can do anything!

We’ll read the story, “Jesus Feeds Thousands” in Mark 6:31-44 to learn about the time when Jesus fed over 5,000 people with just five loaves of bread and two fish. Jesus took the food, gave thanks to God, and it began to multiply. Everyone had eaten, and there were 12 baskets of food leftover! Jesus fed over 5,000 people with a small lunch, and He do anything!

We made a Bible Story Meal Time Mat to help us remember that Jesus can do anything. Place the Bible Story Meal Time Mat at the table where your toddler eats. Before each meal, point to the placemat and review the Bible story with your toddler:

  • Who is in the picture? (Jesus, the disciples, a young boy)
  • Did Jesus use the young boy’s lunch to feed over 5,000 people? (yes)
  • Does this story teach us that Jesus can do anything? (yes)

Say, “That’s right! Can you believe that Jesus fed a whole crowd of people with such a small lunch? Nothing is too hard for Jesus because He can do anything! Who can do anything?” Encourage your toddler to say, “Jesus can do anything!”


Safari :: Week of December 28

Read Matthew 2:1-11 together as a family. Use a children’s Bible if you have one (pages 286-290 in The Beginner’s Bible or pages 288-293 in God’s Story for Me Bible Storybook).

Here are a few activities you can use to review what we’ve been learning this month with your toddler. You can choose one or choose all of them to do together as a family.
