This session is for children aged 1-4, but do keep it really short and simple for under 2’s.
Make sure you read the full session before you start, and check out these practical tips to get the most out of your time together.
We pray you’ll have a wonderful, fun time with your little ones!
Today is the last session on HEROES!!
Today’s aim is to know that Jesus is our superhero – he is amazing!
Make it special: Pretend to be superheroes zooming around the room, then freeze in a cool superhero pose!

Jesus is our superhero: He is God’s son!
He healed people, he helped people, he loved everyone and he died and came back to life for us!
We can know him as our friend.
We can team up with him to be superheroes too!
Say this together: JESUS IS MY SUPERHERO!
Keep saying it with different voices; robot, squeaky, whisper, shout…
FUN ACTIVITIES (5-10 MINS)
Play a favourite story together:
Why not put down a rug for Lake Galilee and pretend to be Jesus and Peter walking on it or Jesus calming the storm, or use any toy food you have (or snack time!) for playing feeding the 5000…
Make it fun and interactive and wonder about Jesus together: wow I love this story… Jesus is so amazing, he can… how did he feed so may people… I wonder what walking on water is like….
Create: decorate the ‘I am thankful for Jesus’ cross – you could use finger prints, squiggly lines, circles, stickers or glue on coloured paper pieces or some of the pictures on the template. Chat about Jesus as you create…

PRAYER TIME (2 MINS)
- SHOUT OUT: JESUS IS MY SUPERHERO!
- Praise Jesus: Depending on your child’s age help them to praise Jesus: say ‘WOW’ or ‘You’re amazing’ to Jesus! Thank him for his amazing power and love for us all the time.
- Pray for your child to be filled with Jesus’ heavenly superhero power. Who could we pray for now? Help them think of and pray simple prayers for others they know: ‘Jesus be with Grandma’, ‘Jesus fill my Daddy with love’, ‘Jesus heal my sister’…
