B is for Bethlehem where Jesus was born.
Although it isn’t Christmas it seemed a good idea to do the story of Jesus’ birth for B. In our craft we made pictures of Bethlehem and for the story we used visuals from a book called ‘A Saviour for you’. The pictures are fantastic.

We kept the story very simple and used a couple of pictures. The main teaching point was that God had sent Jesus to be our saviour.
Last week we started a new term at Toddler Group. For the Bible stories we will take a letter of the alphabet each week and tell a story based on something or someone whose name begins with that letter.
For B the craft is a picture of Bethlehem. Parts of the picture are provided to add/match to the right part of the picture. for little children this is quite a tricky thing to do but mums/dads/carers usually help. Children can also colour the picture.
For the story? Come back later and find out!
Obviously this is the English alphabet – but as an idea you could adapt it to any language.
