What is Missing

Use clip art and cardstock to create an easy game for preschoolers. Show them the cards, one by one, and see if they can guess what important thing is missing in each picture.

Ask the kids if they’ve ever lost anything that was special to them.

This is a great way to introduce the Parable of the Lost Sheep, The Prodigal Son…or perhaps Jesus as a young boy missing on the way home from the temple…or even Jesus’ body missing from the tomb! So many uses!

Tech talented folks could even make a video version!

Jesus Wept

I used this cute idea from The Fantastic Five blog when teaching my VBS lesson on Lazarus this morning!

Simply take an eye dropper and some water & place “tears” on the cheeks of the “mourners.” Then have a good cry over Lazarus’ death. The kindergarteners loved it!

I was also able to find a free printable version of the story of Lazarus here:
