- Home Connection
- NEED: Dress-up crown, tunnel, and a toy scepter; Optional pool noodle or curtain rod with one finial instead of scepter
- Before the Activity: Place tunnel near the entrance of the room. Encourage the child to stand in front of the tunnel.
- During the Activity: Call the child by name to the tunnel. Hold your scepter in front of the tunnel. Declare that they may enter and raise your scepter. Encourage the child to crawl through the tunnel and return to the start. Repeat as desired.
- After the Activity: Introduce the Bible story.
- Before the Activity: “Friend, come stand in front of the tunnel with me! I am the [queen or king] of the room, and I have a fun game for us to play.”
- During the Activity: “When I call your name, please walk forward. I will declare you able to enter. Let’s play! [Child’s name], please step forward. (Pause.) You may enter. (Wave the scepter over the tunnel and let the child go through.) Oh, wow what a fun way to enter our room. Great job! You did a great job of waiting for the [queen or king] to let you enter our room. You are so brave!”
- After the Activity: “Wow! We had to get the [queen’s or king’s] permission to enter, and today we’ll learn about a brave queen who had to ask the king for help. Come with me, and let’s go hear our story.”
- Bath Time
- Ask your child to help you gather their things for bath time (towel, toys, clean clothes, etc.). During bath time, ask them to help you wash their hair and body. After bath time, ask them to help you clean up. When all is done, say: "Thank you for helping me. Sometimes it's easy to help and other times we have to be brave to help. The good news is that God can help us be brave!"
