MONTHLY FOCUS: Jesus can do anything.
BIBLE VERSE: “With God, all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26 (NIV)
BIBLE STORY: Jesus Feeds Thousands | Mark 6:31-44
Play a game with your toddler to remind them that Jesus can do anything.
Say, “Today I thought it would be fun to have a picnic, but we need some food. What kind of food would you bring on a picnic?” Encourage your toddler to answer and engage with their responses. For example, say, “Oh, that sounds like a delicious picnic!”
Say, “Let’s go gather some food for our picnic.” (Food can be real or pretend).
After you have collected food, sit with your toddler and share the food with each other.
Say, “That was so fun! I love picnics, especially when I can share them with you. It is amazing how much food we had left over! Who else had food left over at His picnic?”
Encourage your toddler to say, “Jesus did!” Say, “That’s right. Jesus took five loaves of bread and two fish from one little boy’s lunch and fed thousands of people. That’s amazing! Who can do anything?” Encourage your toddler to say, “Jesus can do anything!”
