Thank you God book – for toddler group

Over the past term at our Toddler Group we have made a ‘thank you God book’ – this is an overview of what we did

Title page ‘our thank you God book’

Then the following pages  – with pictures added from google images. Each page was A3 and was laminated.

‘I am wonderfully made’ Psalm 139 verse 14

Hands can .. clap, wave, touch, catch

Thank you God for my hands

Tabitha used her hands to help others

Feet can … run, jump, walk, tip toe

Thank you God for my feet

Zacchaeus used his feet to run to see Jesus

Noses can.. rub, smell, breathe

Thank you God for my nose

Mary gave the special perfume to Jesus. It smelt beautiful.

Mouths can … shout, eat and drink, sing, speak

Thank you God for my mouth

Ears can listen to … whispers, shouts, songs

Thank you God for my ears

The children shouted ‘Hosanna’. Everyone heard.

Eyes can.. blink, see colours, close, open

Thank you God for my eyes

Jesus died. Then he came alive again. Lots of people saw him.

For the first 6 weeks we went through the parts of the body – so we just did hands can .. thank you God for my hands etc. The children were able to do the different actions.

Then for the next 5 weeks we reviewed/repeated what we had done but added a short bible story. We combined ears and mouths for a week as they fitted so well with the story of palm sunday. The children were able to shout Hosanna and everyone could hear them!

The pictures are just to give you an idea of what we did – they were more of a visul aid for the adults as we had actions for the children to do. I find it really helpful to have something visual to refer to just in case i forget what I’m meant to say!
