Safari :: Week of April 22

MONTHLY FOCUS: Jesus is the best!
VERSE FOCUS: “God loved the world so much that He gave His only Son.” John 3:16 (GNT)
BIBLE STORY: Jesus is Alive! | Matthew 26-28

This week during eKidz we played a game to remind us that Jesus is the best!

Say, “Just like you learned in the Bible story, Jesus loves us so much that He died for us. Thatis why Jesus is the best!”

Say, “Let’s play a fun game to remind us that Jesus is the best! We are going to march around the room and shout, ‘Jesus is the best!’ I’ll start and you can copy what I do. Let’s begin marching.” As you begin marching, start shouting, “Jesus is the best!”

You can add additional movements after you have marched; you can skip, hop, or spin. You can also use different tones of voice such as a shout, whisper, or a silly voice.

This week during eKidz we had a ‘Jesus is the best!’ Easter egg hunt.

Hide Easter eggs with a picture of Jesus in them around a room in your house. When your toddler finds an egg, stop and open the egg. Pull out the picture of Jesus and shout, “Jesus is the best!”

Continue until all Easter eggs are found.

This week during eKidz we did a chant to help us remember Jesus is the best!

Have your toddler follow your lead. Wave your hands and shout, ‘Jesus is,’ then jump in the air and shout, ‘the best!’ You can use other motions such as waving your hands around your head or waving them in circles.

After doing the chant encourage your toddler to repeat, “Jesus is the best!”

VERSE FOCUS: “God loved the world so much that He gave His only Son.” John 3:16 (GNT)
BIBLE STORY: Jesus is Alive! Matthew 26-28

This month we are learning, “Jesus is the best!” We read the story “Jesus is Alive!” in Matthew 26-28. Jesus knew He had to die on a cross for the sins of all people because it was part of God’s plan. But He didn’t stay dead! Mary Magdalene and her friends saw an angel at Jesus’ grave who said “Jesus is not here. He is alive!” When they saw Jesus, He said, “Go tell my helpers I will see them soon.” Jesus loves us so much, that He died on a cross for us. Jesus is the best!

Meal Time Bible Story Mat | Week 1

We made a Bible story mat to help us remember Jesus is the best! Place the Meal Time Bible Story Mat at the table where your toddler eats. Before each meal, point to the place mat and review the Bible story with your child:

        • What do you see in the picture? (Jesus talking to some ladies who are happy.)
        • What did God teach us in the story “Jesus is Alive?” (Jesus came back alive and it made His friends happy.)

Say, “Jesus didn’t stay dead and that makes me happy. Jesus is the best!”


Safari :: Week of March 25

MONTHLY FOCUS: I can love everyone.
VERSE FOCUS: “Love one another.” John 13:34 (NIV)
BIBLE STORY: The Greatest Commandment I Matthew 22:34-40

Today during the experience we colored a picture on the back of your toddler’s weekly newsletter of two friends loving one another. Show your toddler their Love One Another coloring sheet on the back of the newsletter.

Say, “Jesus wants us to love Him with all our heart. He also wants us to love one another, just like you learned in the Bible story in church. I love the picture you colored. Tell me what you see in the picture. (two friends loving one another, just like Jesus loves us)

Discuss with your toddler how your family can love other people this week. (share my toys, say nice things, give hugs, help clean the house)
