We are currently learning about some of the stories that Jesus told. We can read about these in the Bible and they each show us how much God loves us and how we can be more like Him.
Verse ‘I have loved you with an everlasting love.’ Jeremiah 31v3
Book The story this week is ‘The House on the Rock’ from Stories Jesus Told by Nick Butterworth and Mick Inkpen (see link here). If you don’t have a copy of this book then have a look at this video of the story (see the video here) or have a look in your Bible at Matthew 7v24-27.
Songs God's love is big - Guess what, God loves you - When I look - The wise man built his house (see the videos here).
Activity House building. If you have some sand build some ‘houses’ in it, show your child if you build a house on the sand, it is easy to knock over (there are lots of recipes online for making your own sand at home if you don’t have any).
Then after this build some ‘houses’ on a firm foundation, this could be with duplo, lego, wooden blocks etc. Show your child how these houses are much harder to knock over.
As you build remind your child that Jesus says ‘I am like the wise man’s rock, if you trust in me, I will never let you down’.
