Safari :: Week of October 20

MONTHLY FOCUS: I can trust God.
MEMORY VERSE: “I trust in you, my God!” Psalm 25:2a (NLT)
BIBLE STORY: Daniel and the Lions | Daniel 6

Before bedtime, cuddle with your toddler and play a fun game to help them remember we can trust God.

Take turns hiding under a blanket, pretending to be in “a den,” like Daniel was in our Bible story. Then, pull the blanket down to surprise each other and say, “I can trust God!” Repeat activity for as long as your toddler is interested. Say, “No matter what we face, we can trust God because He loves us. Who can trust God?” Encourage your toddler to say, “I can trust God!”

This week we sang a song to help us remember we can trust God. Sing the song with your toddler at home!

I Can Trust God (to the tune of “If You’re Happy and You Know It”)

I can trust God. Yes I can! (clap, clap)
I can trust God. Yes I can! (clap, clap)
No matter what comes my way,
I can trust Him every day.
I can trust God. Yes I can! (clap, clap)

I can trust God. Yes I can! (stomp, stomp)
I can trust God. Yes I can! (stomp, stomp)
No matter what comes my way,
I can trust Him every day.

I can trust God. Yes I can! (Say, “Hooray!”)
I can trust God. Yes I can! (Say, “Hooray!”)
No matter what comes my way,
I can trust Him every day.
I can trust God. Yes I can! (Say, “Hooray!”)

You can also put all three together for a fourth verse. (clap, clap, stomp, stomp, “Hooray!”)

Repeat a few times, or as long as your toddler is interested. After the activity, say, “You did a wonderful job singing! Who can trust God?” Encourage your toddler to say, “I can trust God!”

 


Safari :: Week of October 6

MONTHLY FOCUS: I can trust God.
MEMORY VERSE: “I trust in you, my God!” Psalm 25:2a (NLT)
BIBLE STORY: Daniel and the Lions | Daniel 6

This month we are learning, “I can trust God.” God loves us and we can trust Him no matter what!

We will learn the story, “Daniel and the Lions,” in Daniel 6. When the king made a new rule, Daniel knew it was wrong and continued obeying God by praying to Him. Because Daniel didn’t follow the king’s rule, he was thrown into a den with lions. Daniel trusted God and God protected him from the lions! We can always trust God, just like Daniel did. Sometimes we might be scared, worried or feel alone, but no matter what we face, we can remember that God loves us and we can trust Him!

 

We made a Bible Story Meal Time Mat to help us remember that we can trust God. Place the Bible Story Meal Time Mat at the table where your toddler eats. Before each meal, point to the place mat and review the Bible story with your toddler:

  • Who is in the den with the lions? (Daniel)
  • What can we learn from Daniel’s story? (I can trust God.)

Say, “Daniel trusted God and God protected him from the lions! We can trust God, too! Sometimes we might be scared, worried, or feel alone, but no matter what we face, we can remember that God loves us and we can trust Him! Who can trust God?” Encourage your toddler to say, “I can trust God.”


Safari :: Week of September 29

MONTHLY FOCUS: God keeps His promises.
MEMORY VERSE:Trust the Lord with all your heart.” Proverbs 3:5 (NCV)
BIBLE STORY: Noah’s Ark | Genesis 6-9

This week we made a craft to remind us that God keeps His promises. Grab the rainbow your toddler colored and play a fun game with your toddler to help them remember that God keeps His promises!

Give your toddler their newsletter and say, “I’m going to say a promise in God’s Word and I want you to hold up your rainbow if you know that God will keep that promise. Are you ready?”

Say the following promises and encourage your toddler to hold his or her rainbow in the air.

“In His Word, God promises to…”

  • be with us
  • help us
  • always love us
  • give us what we need
  • comfort us
  • hear our prayers


Continue as long as your toddler is interested.

At the end of the activity say, “Wow, you did a great job! Remember, God always keeps His promises and we can read about them in His Word! Who keeps His promises?” Encourage your toddler to say, “God keeps His promises!”
