Bible Story Time
Settle down with your children to watch the bible story.
The people were hungry and there wasn’t enough food for everyone. But God can do anything. Jesus took one little boy’s lunch and multiplied it so everyone could eat. God loves us. We can trust Him as our Saviour.
Discuss these questions with your child:
- Who did the people go out to see? Jesus
- What food did the little boy have? Five loaves of bread and two fishes.
- Was there enough food for everyone? Yes, everyone had enough to eat.
- Is there anything God cannot do? God can do anything.
“You are great. You do wonderful things. You alone are God.” Psalm 86:10
Hand motions: “You are great” (Twist your body to the right. On ‘great’ twist back, punching your right arm into the air.) “You do wonderful things” (Move your arms up and down as you clench and release your fists – like little fireworks going off.) “You alone are God” (Lift both arms up to Heaven. Lower them to your chest, with your palms together in a praying stance.)
Close by praying with your children, ask them to name something they are thankful for and something that they want to ask God for. Encourage them to pray out loud and pray with them as well.
Dear God,You can do anything. You love us. We trust you. Amen
Make your own loaves and fishes.
Colour in the following picture of loaves and fishes. You can cut them out at and stick them on a paper plate or make a small basket to put them in.
GAME TIME: Try some games that require a little trust: leading little ones around blindfolded, trust falls, etc. Talk about what it means to trust someone. Remind your kids that they can always trust God.
EATING: During mealtime, thank God that your family has enough food to eat. Talk about how Jesus multiplied the little boy’s lunch of 5 small loaves of bread and 2 fish, so that over 5,000 people could have enough to eat.
SNUGGLING: At bedtime, read some of the stories of Jesus from a picture book or child-friendly version of the Bible. Talk about Jesus’ love and power. Talk to your child about what it means to trust Him as their Savior.
