Preschool-age children are rapidly exploring and refining their
gross motor skills-the movement of large muscles of the body. Gross
motor skills help in the development of fine motor skills that are
important for elementary school readiness, such as using scissors
or a pencil. Here are ideas to combine the building of gross motor
skills and faith discoveries.


Hopping-Challenge preschoolers to cross the Red
Sea with Moses by hopping on one foot. Or have them make large
leaps with both feet as they imagine jumping over small fires in
the furnace like Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.

Climbing-As children climb playground equipment,
remind them of the people who climbed the hill to hear Jesus teach
or the mountain Moses climbed to receive the Ten Commandments.

Skipping-Have preschoolers use their skipping
skills as they imagine what it would be like to explore the Garden
of Eden.
