This Week In Safari Babies :: I can obey God.

We’re Learning… I can obey God.
Bible Story: Noah’s Ark ● Genesis 6-9

As a family, read “Noah’s Ark” (Genesis 6-9) from a children’s Bible. (CLICK HERE for children’s Bible recommendations.) 

After reading the Bible story, complete the activity together.

Memory Verse Activity:

Activity Supplies: Playlist

  • Say, “Let’s do an activity to help us remember we can obey God!”
  • Practice saying the memory verse and doing the motions a few times.
  • Then, lead your toddler in the activity below.

    “Happy are those (point to smile)
    who obey the LORD.” (point up)
    Psalms 128:1 (open hands like a book)

  • Play the Praise Party playlist and have a dance party with your toddler.
  • After about 30 seconds, pause the music and encourage your toddler to stand very still or FREEZE.
  • Lead them in saying the memory verse with the motions.
  • After saying the verse, turn the music on again and repeat the activity every 30 seconds for as long as your toddler is interested.
  • After the activity, say, “Wonderful job singing! Who can obey God?” Encourage your toddler to say, “I can obey God!” Then lead your toddler in prayer: 

    “Dear God, thank You for loving us. We trust You know what’s best, and we want to obey You. Please help us obey You and follow You in everything we do. In Jesus’ name, amen.”


In addition to reading stories from the Bible each Sunday, we also read a book together that reinforces what we’re learning. This month, we’re reading “Goodnight, Ark” by Laura Sassi. If you’re looking for a new book to add to your child’s library at home, you can learn more about this month’s book HERE!
