Do you need fresh ideas for preschool Sunday school lessons? These three brief lessons are a hit at our preschool Chapel Chat every Thursday. During that time, 3- and 4-year-olds worship in the sanctuary with our pastor. Children sing songs and listen to a short message. Occasionally, I get to fill in. I so enjoy interacting with these vibrant worshipers!
Check out the three preschool Sunday school lessons below. Maybe you can use one at your next Chapel Chat with preschoolers or Children’s Sermon on Sundays.
3 Quick Preschool Sunday School Lessons
1. Preschool Sunday School Lessons: Words Can’t Go Back In
Theme: Be kind to each other
Scripture: Ephesians 4:32
Supplies Needed: Toothpaste, Paper Towels
Show children the tube of toothpaste. Ask what we do with it. Then invite one of them to squirt out some toothpaste on the paper towel.
Say: Now that you’ve squirted the toothpaste out, I want you to put it back in the tube.
The child will give you a funny look. But encourage the child to try to put it back in. It may get a little messy, so have extra paper towels handy.
After the toothpaste fails to go back in, then ask:
Why can’t you put toothpaste back in the tube once you’ve squirted it out? (It’s not made to do that.)
This reminds me: We’re not made to be hurtful to others by saying mean words. Every word that comes out of our mouth, we can’t put back in. Once it’s spoken, then we can’t take it back. That’s why it’s so important that we be careful with the words we speak. We need to say kind and loving words to our parents, friends, brothers and sisters. God made us to be kind and loving to others, not mean.
Ephesians 4:32 says: “Be kind, one to another; tenderhearted forgiving one another.”
What are some kind words we can say? Allow kids to answer.
Let’s remember to use kind words like this every time we speak. We want to love others by showing them kindness. Jesus wants us to do that!
On days when we do say hurtful or mean words, we can ask for forgiveness from God. Plus, we can say we’re sorry to the person we hurt.
Let’s practice saying kind words. Turn to a friend and say a kind word to them. Allow a few seconds for this.
Remember: We can’t take our words back. So we need to make sure we think about what we say before we say it. God made us to be kind to each other. Now let’s go out today and be kind to everyone!
Prayer: Dear God, thank you that we can talk. Help us use our words in kind and loving ways every day. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
