It turns out that I've gotten used to teaching older kids and adults. I seem to be clueless about what to do with 3 and 4-yr-olds.
Due to the growing number of children and the presence of toddlers at Sunday school, we decided to take the youngest kids and teach them separately.
So we read a little bit of the Creation story and then asked a few questions.
"Who created the sun?" we asked.
"I did!" shouted the 3-yr-old.
Hmmm. We read the story again.
"Who created the sun?"
"No, God did."
I had planned a lot more activities for the lesson, but it looked like we needed to take it slowly.
We managed to get through 3 verses of "He's Got the Whole World in His Hands," as well as a very intense coloring session. I didn't realize that coloring could be laborious.
Maybe next time we'll try puppets. :)
