I was really pleased last night when my 5 year old retold the Parable of the Good Samaritan to his dad at dinner time. Yay! Maybe things are sticking in their little minds. :)
Today we talked about the Parable of the Unmerciful Servant. I have found that they really soak up the videos that I find for them to watch so we watched a number of them today.
Bible Video: Forgive 70 Times 7 (I did this math problem on our white board beforehand and we talked about how we should ALWAYS forgive)
The Unmerciful Servant (modern version- they have really been liking these)
We did a Reader's Theatre found at Sugardoodle. They absolutely loved this and did it a dozen times so that everyone had a chance to be each part more than once.
I also tired up a rope of licorce into a knot and explained that when we aren't willing to forgive it is like always walking around with a big knot in your stomach. (source: sugardoodle.net)
