Preschool Sunday School Lesson: Why God Created Families

Children ages 3 to 5 are starting to understand the concept of family. Use this Preschool Sunday School Lesson: Why God Created Families with young children. Find more great Sunday school lessons to help kids grow in their faith.

Bible Activity: Strong Houses

On separate sheets of newsprint, draw a house with chalk and a house with crayons. Hang the houses side-by-side on the wall. Place a plastic tarp on the floor. Give children water bottles and let them squirt the pictures.

Paraphrase Matthew 7:24-27. Then ask:

  • What’s happening to our pictures?
  • Which kind of house would you want to live in?
  • How does God want us to treat our families?

Say: Nothing can hurt our families if we love each other.


Craft: Upon This Rock

Have children each cut out a rock shape from black construction paper. Have kids cut out magazine pictures to represent their family members and glue the pictures to their rocks.

Say: God is our solid rock. He wants to keep our families safe and together. God takes care of our families as we stick with him.

Snack

You’ll need:

  • Fortune cookies,
  • slips of paper,
  • pencils and
  • sandwich bags.

Have kids write each family member’s name and an encouraging note on a slip of paper. For example, kids may write, “Mom, thanks for making such good meals for me.” Help younger children write their notes. Insert each of the slips into a different fortune cookie-one to give to each family member. Then have kids put their cookies in a sandwich bag to take home. Let kids eat leftover cookies.

For All Ages

Get families together for a Family Appreciation Dessert. Children can make and serve a simple dessert such as brownie sundaes or decorated cakes. Kids can present handmade awards and tell why they love each family member.
