The nursery at my church is amazing. All thanks to Linda Mayhugh for teaching us this fun Bible lesson for our babies!
When you pass our nursery, you will rarely hear crying or fussing. Instead, you will hear the laughter and singing as our babies and toddlers learn about God! You will see chubby cheeks smiling and all eyes on the teacher as the babies eagerly wait to see what is coming next.
This class really stimulates all of their senses, building the young children’s vocabulary and giving them something to look forward to each week. In fact, the little ones that have learned how to walk will often head straight to the table for their lesson the moment they arrive. Some will even point to the table and say, “Bible Class?”
Well, I was so impressed by this lesson and, even more so, the excited reaction of all the nursery children that I decided to replicate the lesson for home use. I teach this bible class to my own children and my preschoolers. It is a huge hit every time and I am sure it will be for your little ones as well. Below is everything you will need to get started, including the complete lesson in a downloadable version.
First, download the class outline. I laminated mine so it can withstand abuse. This outline will show you how to do the class step by step and help you stay on track so you can transition fast and keep your little one’s attention. Click the image to download.

- Flexible Cutting Board (something to look through)
- Toy Cars and/or Vehicles (train, boat, plane)
- Small B
