Ants go left and ants go right.
They work hard all day and night.
Ants go up and ants go down.
They do their work without a frown.
Ants go to and and go fro,
Working together all in a row.
Ants go east and ants go west.
They always try to do their best.
Ants work hard for their size.
Learn from the ants and you'll be wise!

Pretend to be Ants

Divide your children up into groups of three to four ants: the head, the thorax, and the abdomen. The children who are the thorax and abdomen should place their hands on the shoulders of the child in front of them. Let them practice walking together saying left and right, left and right, as they go. Tell them to try to keep their feet all moving at the same time. Next, have them try marching to the Ant Chant.



Ant Chant

Left and right, left and right.
We work hard all day and night.

Left and right, left and right.
Working hard is our delight.

Left and right, left and right.
We don't whine, we do it right.

Left and right, left and right.
Jesus is our guiding light.

Paper 3-D Pop-up Ant

3-D Paper Pop Up Ant craft 3-D bible craft  from www.daniellesplace.com

A Pattern for this craft is available to members on The Resource Room.





I teach a group of children ages 18 months to 3 years so basically it is a toddler class. I taught your lesson on Jesus Feeds 5000 with the ant and the fish crackers and soda crackers. I made the little baskets and put scripture in them just like your instructions. It was absolutely wonderful. The children loved Arnie the Ant and they listened and I feel they really got something out of this lesson. They all took their little baskets home with their little treats. It was a big hit and I loved preparing it for them as well as watching their excitement about the lesson. It was a little different and it added a lot to my already prepared lesson that is provided for us to teach. It was much more interesting and just made it FUN! Thank you so much.

Bread of Life


Sandwich Party

Begin class with a sandwich party. Let your children choose what they would like on their bread. While your kids are enjoying this yummy treat, discuss how often we eat bread. Ask them what kind of things they like to put on their bread. Show them different kinds of bread: Brown bread, flat bread, long bread, etc. Tell your children that their is another kind of bread, but we don't eat it. Let them guess what it could be. When everyone gives up guessing announce that Jesus is bread too. Explain how the Bible is food for our souls and we need it daily. Just as we need to have bread to fill our tummy's, we have to have Jesus so our hearts don't get hungry. After clean up have your children color a picture of a Bible and a picture of bread. The memory verse should appear on their picture of the Bible "I am that bread of life." John 6:48

Allow kids to reenact what they just learned with their colored pictures. Holding up the Bible picture say, "This bread is for my belly." holding up the picture of the colored bread say, "This bread is for my heart." Sent in by Kelly Hamilton


Bread of Life Lessons and Crafts on The Resource Room.

Bread of Life - Soul Food Bible Lesson for Sunday School from www.daniellesplace.com

Soul Food

Preschool children learn that feeding their souls with God’s words is much more important than feeding their bodies and that they need a daily filling of God’s words to grow strong in their faith. They visit the "Soul Food Market" and shop for Bible verses to feed their souls.





Go On a Spiritual Picnic

Tell the children to raise their hands if they like picnics. Picnics are a lot of fun. People get together and share their favorite foods and enjoy each other’s company. Tell the children that today they are going on a picnic -- a spiritual picnic. We are going to get together and share God’s words. Each child is going to bring their favorite “soul food” to the picnic. You will read it to the class and share why it is your favorite or one of your favorite verses.
