This preschool children’s message can work with Jesus’ telling the disciples to be fishers of men, Peter’s great catch, and when Jesus cooks breakfast for the disciples.
Preschool Children’s Message: Fishers of Men Bible Story
Make a “fishing pond” by placing a circle of blue fabric on the floor. Lay small rocks around the pond. Cut out large construction paper fish and attach a paper clip to each fish. Scatter the fish around the pond.
Make “fishing poles” by tying one end of a 2-foot piece of string to a small magnet and stapling the other end to a yardstick or3-foot stick. Give each child a pole to reel in the paper fish.
After all the fish are caught, give each child several small construction paper squares. Help children glue the colorful pieces to one of their fish to make a fish mosaic.
Then read and discuss any of the following stories as a part of the preschool children’s message: Jesus calls his disciples to be fishers of men (Matthew 4:18-22); Peter’s great catch of fish (Luke 5:1-11); or Jesus cooks breakfast for the
disciples (John 21:1-14).
Kids may want to go fishing again!
