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.

Song Activity:

  • Say, “Let’s sing a song to help us remember we can obey God!”
  • Lead your toddler in singing the song below to the tune of “The Farmer in the Dell.”

    God wants me to obey.
    God wants me to obey.
    He’ll show me what to do and say,
    God wants me to obey.

  • 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!
