It takes creative preschool Bible lessons to keep little ones interested. It's never too early to begin planting God's Word into the hearts of children. Preschool-age children can learn powerful Biblical truths that will impact their lives. Those close to Timothy began teaching him the Scriptures when he was very young. God used these to help shape Timothy's character and prepare him for the man of God he was to become.
Bible lessons for preschoolers can be a tool with which you can do the same to help these little ones become all God means for them to be.
Paul reminded Timothy in 2 Timothy 3:14-15:
"But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, and how from infancy you have known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus."
Teaching preschool children the truth of God's Word can be both challenging and fun!
* They are curious - they want to learn!
- Answer their questions. Choose one simple Bible truth or verse for each lesson and repeat it often. Ex. "God made everything."
* They are imaginative - they want to create!
- Be creative. Don't read the story; become the Bible character. It's time for "pretend" mode!
* They are full of energy - they want to do!
- Keep them active. Use a variety activities that stimulate all five senses.
* They openly trust - they want to believe!
- Share your heart. Model what you teach. It's been said - "more is caught than taught."
