Behold Your Little Ones Lesson 14: I Will Obey

Teaching Thoughts

These are a few bonus ideas- keep scrolling for more!

  • Sing lots of songs with instructions to follow such as Hokey Pokey and Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes.
  • Set up a simple obstacle course for the children to do quickly ("Quickly, I'll Obey") such as skip across the room or jump on each carpet square.

The following are links to resources unless otherwise stated.
