As we are finishing up our travels around Earth this month, we're getting excited to leave this planet and blast off to outer space!
Here's a brief look back at some of our February activities...
To join us as we begin our space explorations, order your preschool curriculum at Mother Goose Time.
God is Love
featuring The Nativity Story
featuring The Nativity Story
For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only son, whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
Counting Steps to Jesus
Where have you traveled?
Sometimes we have to go to far away places, but no matter where we go, Jesus is there.
|We read Luke 2: 4-5. Then we recorded and compared the number of normal, big, and small steps it took us to reach our destination.|
Time for Jesus
Do you know what time you were born?
No matter what time it is, we should seek God and live to please Him. Jesus was born to be the King of our lives every day.
How do you think a baby feels when he is swaddled in a blanket?
We can be wrapped up in Jesus' love and feel safe every day.
Jesus in the Manger
What did your bed look like when you were a baby?
Jesus came here to love, not to have a fancy room and toys.
Four in a Flock
What do you have to take care of in your home?
Just as a shepherd watches over his sheep, God watches over us. Jesus is the lamb of God.
|The sheep (cotton balls) are hiding around the room and the children found them and put them back in herds of four each.|
Glory of the Lord
What do you think would be scary about seeing an angel?
God sent an angel to the shepherds to announce the birth of Jesus. The shepherds knew the message was true.
How many angels do you think were in the "great company?"
All the angels were praising God. God wants all of us to join in the "great company" and praise him too!
|The children estimated how many noodles they could scoop and then counted to verify.|
Why were angels important during the birth of Jesus?
Just as the angels talked about Jesus, God wants us to tell others about Jesus, too.
Count the Sheep Game
Why do you think Sheep follow their shepherd?
We are like sheep and God is our Shepherd. If we run off, God will look for us and hope we come home to Him.
Shine the Love
How do you think the star gives off light?
The Magi followed the light of the new star and found it shining on the Baby Jesus.
God's Gift to Us
What gifts does God give to us?
God is love and He gave His one and only son to us so that we could be with Him forever.
These activities and many more, came directly from Mother Goose Time and can be found in the Experience God curriculum.
A young orphaned boy raised by underground cave-dwelling trash collectors tries to save his friends from an evil exterminator. Based on the children's novel 'Here Be Monsters' by Alan Snow.
