Use the parents’ page as a way to keep in touch with parents, to keep them informed of what you are teaching, and to encourage them to continue reinforcing the lesson at home. Use this template as a starting point. Make it your own by telling them how the children responded to the lesson or something funny that happened. You could substitute any activity suggestions that you think would be appropriate for parents to do with their children at home.
Today we learned about the Last Supper and that Jesus is the Passover Lamb from Luke 22: 7 – 20 and John 13: 3 – 30. Help to reinforce the lesson to your child this week by talking to him or her about the lesson and helping him or her learn the memory verse.
Here are a few activity ideas…
Help your child memorize the verse.
John 1:29b “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!”
Read the story “Price of Freedom” from Keys for Kids.
Help your child make a passover lamb washcloth to place by your bathtub to remind them that Jesus is the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. http://www.makingmusicprayingtwice.com/kids-activities/lent-activities
