God’s Little Explorers Week 11
- Theme: ”f” is for Fire
- Bible Story: The Fiery Furnace
- Bible Verse: “Our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace.” (Daniel 3:17)
- Letter: f
- Number: 6
Here are a few activities we did:
We did several activities with tissue paper. One of them was outlining the number six!
This photo cracks me up! We made “fire” to use to act out the story of the fiery furnace….she’s really scared, right?!! Can you tell we have a little drama around our house most days… 🙂
Fire safety and having an escape route is something really important to us, because my in-laws house was destroyed in a fire and just a few weeks ago, one of our friends lost his house in a fire. I set off the alarm and the girls had to practice what they would do if they heard it. (We meet out to the side of our house by a tree in our yard.) We also practiced “Stop-Drop-and-Roll”.
We played “Don’t Touch, Get Help.”
Kitchen skills are important for preschoolers to develop, so I always let the girls cut-up olives when we have them. Depending on your comfort level and your child’s skill level, you may or may not want to try this! We use the dullest butter knife we have–and, of course, I supervise!
We didn’t get to it, but the last time we did a fire safety unit, we made these fire truck snacks.
We also practiced sweeping. A little broom seems to be the trick to getting my girls to participate!
Finally, we got our boxes ready and dropped them off for Operation Christmas Child!
