3-5s: Exploring the Feeding of the 5000

Here are some ways to help young children to connect with the story of Jesus feeding the 5000.  The focus is food so there is plenty of opportunity to speak to the children about the food they like as they play.  This might feed in, later, to thank you prayers.

Tell the story with props (e.g. felt bread and fish)

Make popcorn to show how, with the right help, a little can go a long way…

Play with toy food and utensils

Play with playdough, plastic forks, spoons, knives, plates and cups

Magnetic prayers to thank God for all the things He gives us.
