Safari :: Week of March 10

MONTHLY FOCUS: I can follow Jesus.
BIBLE VERSE: “‘Come and follow me,’ Jesus said.” Matthew 4:19 (NIrV)
BIBLE STORY: Jesus and His Friends | Matthew 4:18-22

This week we played a game to help us remember we can follow Jesus.

Find something in your house you can use as a “tunnel” to crawl under or through (table, tent, chair). Say, “Today, we are going to follow each other through the tunnel!” Encourage your toddler to crawl through the tunnel, following you. Say, “We did a great job following each other!”

Choose different toddlers to be the leader as you explain other ways to move through the tunnel:

  • wiggle like a worm
  • hop like a frog
  • crawl with their eyes closed
  • flop like a fish

Continue as long as your toddler is interested. At the end of the activity say, “Perfect! I love the way we followed each other through the tunnel! We can follow Jesus, too! He wants us to follow Him! Who can you follow?” Encourage your toddler to say,  “I can follow Jesus!”
