Toddler Lesson 13 - The Pigpen Boy (The Prodigal Son)

This fun Bible lesson based on the parable of the prodigal son keeps children active and involved through pretend play activities, hand motions and illustrated story pictures used as visual aids. During Circle Talk Time, the teacher discusses how God is like the kind father who forgives his son in the Bible story. This lesson introduces the concepts of God's grace and forgiveness to very young children in a way they can begin to understand. The fun Dry Erase Kid Craft (a picture of a child with a heart that is made out of Dry Erase material) is used to show how God wipes away our sin (marks on the heart) because Jesus died on the cross and was punished for our sins. The face of the child changes from sad and guilty, to happy, through the use of a restickable sticker that the teacher makes beforehand. For the other craft for the Prodigal Son Sunday school lesson, the teacher makes the stickers with restickable glue or Inkjet sticker paper to make a sticker set for the children to show the father giving the son new clothes, sandals and a delicious meal. A black and white craft page is included for children to color, as well as one in color for the teacher to use as a story sticker page. Other activities for the Prodigal Son Sunday school lesson include an Action Rhyme with hand motions, and a snack idea, besides the pretend play activity and Dry Erase Activity during story time. The key verse for the Prodigal Son lesson is Psalms 40:4a. Other verses used in this lesson are: Luke 15:7. Scriptures used as reference for the Prodigal Son story are: Luke 15:10-32 and Psalm 40:1-4. You can have online access to all of the printable resources shown on this page, as well as all 52 printable lessons (including story pages, illustrations, printable crafts and activities) by joining Sunday School Fun Zone!
