March 24/25 Parent Note for Sprouts
Dear Sprouts Parent,
We often refer to March like a lion or a lamb, but in Sprouts this month it will be fish and who can follow Jesus. This month is all about Jesus as we prepare for Easter. We will see how He taught the disciples to be fishers of men. They learned this by following Jesus and we want our preschoolers to know that they can follow Jesus too!
We end March with a celebration. This week is Palm Sunday. Our story focus is “we celebrate Jesus because He is special.” We want our preschoolers to know that Jesus is special. He is God’s Son. When the people of Jerusalem heard Jesus was coming to town, they were excited, and they yelled, “Hosanna! Hosanna! Yay Jesus!”
When my boys were young I liked having different books to celebrate the holidays. I especially wanted books of faith to help us remember the true meaning of the holiday. You can find great Easter books at Walmart, Lifeway, Amazon and second-hand stores as well. It is fun to pull them out year after year. These simple traditions can become cherished faith building memories.
Next week is Easter…be sure to check your email for details on where to go! If you are traveling, be sure to watch the videos on the Kids’ Time website.
