5 Favorite Sunday School Lessons for Kids

I don’t know that there is much that I love more than teaching Preschool
Sunday School.  Teaching kids about Jesus is beyond rewarding.  But
also, preschoolers are the absolute BEST!  

And I learned eons ago when I started teaching PreK Sunday School that my
preschoolers were going to need some hands on engaging activities to help us
all survive and thrive our Sunday School hour! 🙂

Here’s a look at 5 of my favorite Sunday School lessons for kids.  (Yes,
it was HARD to narrow it down.  So, if you’re like me and want to see the
entire list, download the
free Sunday School pacing guide
for all of my lessons PreK – 2nd grade)

The 7 Days of Creation

Well, if we’re making a list, we might as well start at the very beginning!
I think I love teaching preschoolers about
the seven days of creation
because there’s so much “preschool stuff” in there.  Counting, the world
around us, sequencing…
And while I know my main goal is teaching kids about Jesus, if we can work in
some other content with it, my teacher heart calls that a win!
You can read all of the details about these lessons and activities in this
7 days of Creation blog post.

God Gives Family

This
families of the Bible unit
is another one I love because of the extra content we can add in
there.  I love teaching these lessons in between Mother’s Day and
Father’s Day.  And any Bible unit that can teach kids more about their
world–like family–is a big win!

These family units have all of the favorites: family Bible stories, handprint
crafts, and engaging exploration stations.  Read more about these
Family Bible lessons in this blog post.

Moses & Manna Games

Games are another HUGE hit for my preschoolers.  This Manna game during
our
Moses unit
goes down as one of the forever favorites for my littles!

It’s super low prep, and has such a huge impact!  Find out how to
play in this blog post on the
Manna game
from our
Moses unit.

The Fruit of the Spirit

If you can’t teach ’em with games, teach ’em with FOOD!  This
Fruit of the Spirit unit
was one of the first Bible units I ever wrote.
I love how well the Fruit of the Spirit goes with character education that we
do so much with younger kids.  And adding fresh fruit snacks made it even
better and more engaging!
This Fruit of the Spirit stamping book is one of my all time favorites and is
sure to have you kids licking their lips and learning how to be more like
Jesus all at the same time!  Read our
routines for the stamping Fruit of the Spirit book here.

Love One Another

Another thing I love to do with Sunday School lessons is connect them with
holidays. 
Christmas
and
Easter
are obvious ones for Sunday School.  But I also love making Bible units
for
Thanksgiving
and for
Valentine’s Day.
Why is Valentine’s Day not a more religious holiday?  I mean, God’s
greatest two commandments are LOVE God and LOVE others…. how have we missed
this opportunity?!? 🙂

In Preschool Sunday School, exploration stations are one of our favorite
routines.  This is a time for kids to come in to the class and start
playing and exploring with something related to our lesson or unit. 

And this
Love One Another unit
is no different!  Read more details about this
Love One Another unit here.
