Family Devotional - God Made Me (Infants to 36 months) by Pete and Judy McCreary

Even from infancy, babies can start learning that family devotionals are an exciting and fun event! Your infant, weeble or toddler children are doing a unit called "God Made Me". This 10 minute devotional is one idea of the kind of things you can be doing at home to reinforce what your child is learning in Kids Kingdom.

Gather the whole family together and begin with a few songs:

Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes
(sit your baby on your lap, touch corresponding body parts as you sing this song to the tune of "This is the way we pick up our toys, pick up our toys…" )

God made my head, my shoulders my knees and my toes
My head, my shoulders, my knees and my toes
My head, my shoulders, my knees and my toes
Let's all join hands together

(Repeat as many times as you want!)

God Made Your Toes
(cuddle your baby as you sing and tickle to the tune of "If you're happy and you know it" )

God made your toes, made your toes (Tickle baby's toes)
God made your knees, made your knees. (Tickle baby's knees and wherever else you sing)
God made your tummy
and God made your back
God made your neck, made your neck!

(Can add elbows, hands, ears, nose, etc., in consecutive verses)

Take a Bible and teach that God wrote it; sing "Pat the Bible" and Let your baby pat it as you pass it around and everyone in you family gets a chance (to the tune of "Did you ever see a Lassie?")

How I love to pat the Bible, the Bible, the Bible How I love to pat the Bible w/ hands God gave me.

If you have a toddler Bible with the creation story in it, read about God making Adam and Eve. Then go though each member of your family and say "God made Mommy…God loves mommy"

Make a beanbag out of a colorful sock. Help baby fill the sock w/ dried beans of some kind (being careful s/he doesn't eat any) and tie a knot at the top. This also helps in the development of fine motor skills. Depending on the age of your child ask him/her to touch the beanbag to different body parts or you do it for a younger child. Where's your toes? God made your toes! Where's your tummy? God made your tummy! Everyone claps at the end and says short prayer. Then you can go have more fun with the beanbag!
