Sunday School at home for toddlers

Sunday School at Home for Toddlers: Love Your God

Getting kids to pay attention to big church can be difficult. So we started looking for resources to help get my toddler involved with learning the bible and connecting with God. This Sunday, we focused on learning about loving God and loving others.

“Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.” – Matthew 22: 37 – 39

Activities:

We found some great resources from Ministry to Children. Here’s the activities we did.
