Safari :: Week of October 12

WE’RE LEARNING… God can help me be brave.
MEMORY VERSE: “Be strong and brave … my God, is with you.” 1 Chronicles 28:20 (NET)
BIBLE STORY: The Brave Queen I Esther 1-10

Before bedtime this week, cuddle with your toddler and play a fun game to help them remember that God can help them be brave.

Ask, “Who can help you be brave when you’re afraid of _________? (e.g., a thunderstorm, a bug, going down the big slide at the playground, etc.) and hide under a blanket. Then, pull the blanket down to surprise your toddler and encourage them to say, “God can help me be brave!” Repeat the activity for as long as your toddler is interested, saying a different example of something they might be afraid of each time.

After the activity, say, “No matter what happens, we don’t have to be afraid because God is with us and He will help us be brave! Who can help you be brave?” Encourage your toddler to say, “God can help me be brave!”
