This Week In Safari :: I can give thanks to God.

We’re Learning… I can give thanks to God.
Bible Story: Ten Lepers ● Luke 17:11-19

As a family, read “Ten Lepers” — Luke 17:11-19 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: Safari Playlist

  • Before the activity, practice saying the memory verse and doing the motions a few times.
  • Play the Safari playlist and have a dance party to help your toddler remember the memory verse.
  • 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 these motions:

    “Give thanks (clap twice)
    to the LORD… ” (point up)
    Psalms 107:1 (open hands like a book)

  • 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, “Great job! Who can give thanks to God?” Encourage your toddler to say, “I can give thanks to God!”

In addition to reading stories from the Bible each Sunday, we also read a book together that reinforces what they’re learning. This month, we’re reading Thank You, God by Frolic First Faith. If you’re looking for a faith-based book to add to your child’s library at home, you can learn more about this month’s book HERE!
