This lesson is a sample from the 8-Lesson Sing and Play Easter Curriculum for Preschool & Toddlers. This series will help you lay a foundation for the Easter story, by looking at God's BIG story through all of Scripture, then help you walk kids through the events of Holy Week.
The stories and activities are designed for toddlers and preschoolers. Through repetition and motions, the stories can be told to young toddlers and older preschoolers will be able to follow along and engage with the stories and answer discussion questions. And, you can easily scale up or down to meet the learning needs of the children in your family or class.
All of the resources are digital downloads, so that means you can print and start teaching today. With full-color teaching pictures and printables, you can also laminate these resources for classroom decor and to be used over and over again. Year after year, the little ones in your ministry can start with this firm foundation in knowing God.
ABOUT BETHANY DARWIN
AUTHOR’S BIO: Bethany Darwin spent 20 years working full time in children’s ministry before recently coming home to raise her son. During her years in children’s ministry, Bethany discovered gaps in the available curriculum and often struggled to find a curriculum that worked in her church setting. It was this discovery that awakened a passion in her for writing children’s ministry curriculum.
Bethany is a popular curriculum writer for Ministry-to-children and you can find many resources of hers there. She is also the author of "Sing and Play Big Truths" published by Christian Focus to help families and churches teach the big truths of the Bible to toddlers. You can connect with Bethany through Facebook at ‘Treasure Trunk Books’ or on IG at ‘Treasure Trunk Kids.’ On these pages, she shares articles and resources for families as well as what she is doing to point her little one to Christ. You can also find other resources of hers there. Bethany is a member of Faith Bible Church in Naples, Florida where she serves in children’s ministry.
I can't wait to present this lesson to our Church School class. They love lessons that they can relate to in their lives today. Thank you!!!
I love Bethany’s simplicity when it comes to a main focus for each lesson. Her songs and actions are a great help ,too.
I have personally read this lesson plan and am excited to use it. We are still not open yet for us to all meet together. We have a team that does an online Sunday school lesson each week and I have given them one of the samples of your great and fun curriculum. I will survey the kids and parents when we meet again and will share with you when we start meeting again. Thank you for all you do for us struggling Children's Ministries. I use your coloring pages all the time, especially when I send out packages to our families. Love, Beth Ann
I so appreciate your lessons for toddlers. It is hard to find complete lessons that can be used in our nursery. We want to use every opportunity to teach our kiddo's at church, and we do not babysit through the nursery class, but actually teach a lesson, either through songs, coloring pages and interactions. Your doing a great job!
Thank you for the Preschool lesson. It would be helpful in working with that age group. The small group I work with is ages 5-9 so next level program would be more suitable. Is it possible to send free Easter program for this age group. Thank you.
Thank you for giving me an opportunity to utilize your prepared lessons as a tool for our Junior Church Kids. It's a big help for our Junior Church teachers.
