Jesus Tree Lessons I

February 24th, 2013 by Aubri


“Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word that comes from God.”

Through Lent I’m using a Jesus Tree with the kiddos for daily lessons. I haven’t had much to go on except the daily reading and some coloring sheets which some days is enough, but since Lily loves doing crafts I’ve been coming up with those as well to accompany each lesson.


Saturday’s lesson, The Temptation of Jesus.

Not a great craft, but it kept the girls busy and got them working on their scissor skills. We looked through magazines and cut out bread.

A little glue and our Bible verse, that was all. We talked about how it is important to eat, to fill our tummies, but it is more important that we fill our minds and hearts with God’s word. Learning it and listening to it.

Another craft idea I liked was THIS ONE. But it was a bit more involved that what I had time for.

The Sermon on the Mount, Beatitudes. I’m sure it’s just me, but this lesson was hard to teach my preschoolers. Figuring out how to put the text into words that their little minds could understand was a challenge. Some of the lesson was “ask your Daddy about that”!

I think mine was the best.

Wednesday’s lesson was of one of my favorite stories in Scripture, Mary and Martha. I am so in that kitchen with Martha! Guilty, guilty. And Jesus is so loving and gentle with her….with me.

This craft cracked me up. The idea came from HERE. We made “listening ears”, which didn’t turn out that great, but who wouldn’t have fun walking around with their listening ears dangling off their heads?!

We talked about how important it is to listen to the Words of Jesus whenever we can instead of putting other things first.

Thursday, Jesus Calls His Disciples.

I thought this was cute.  I did the best I could with some onion bags.

Some songs for this lesson can be found HERE and HERE.

We got around to one more lesson this week, Jesus Blesses the Little Children.

Another very simple craft. Children’s Faces found HERE.

    I want to be one of your children! Will you adopt me? It’s such a blessing to see how you are constantly pointing them to Jesus, the All-Sufficient One, the Author and Finisher of our faith. Keep up the good work.
    I love you!

    Aunty, I’m sure we wouldn’t even notice one more around here! You’d blend right in and you and Lily could sit next to each other at meal times to commiserate that mama is trying to get y’all to eat rice!

    Thanks BethAnn!
