Hey parents! Use these questions as a guide to talk over this week’s lesson about Esther with your child after they’ve watched the video service!
- Who was today's Bible story about?
Esther. God made Esther and she loved God.
- What did Esther wear on her head?
A crown! The crown showed everyone that Esther was a queen.
- One day, she heard someone was going to do something bad. Uh oh! Did Esther stop the bad thing from happening?
Yes! She stoppped the bad plan. Shake your head “no” because the plan was not good.
- Esther had to do something brave and tell the king to stop the bad plan. Can you be brave, too?
Yes! God helps us be brave. Show me your strong arms because God made us to do good and brave things.
- Take some time to pray with your toddler. Encourage your toddler to sit with you and fold their hands, saying something like:
God, thank you for loving us and wanting to be our friend. Thank you for making us. Help us do good things and be brave like Esther! We love you! Amen.
