Bible Theme: God Sticks by Me!
Children love to learn that God sticks by them, just
like a magnet!  Just like when two magnets stick
together, when we ask Jesus into our hearts, he always
stays in us, helping us and being our closest friend.
Preschool Theme: Magnets
This page is  full of magnet printables!  There are
coloring pages, bible verse bracelets, handwriting
worksheets and more!  We have everything you need
for an amazing magnetic adventure!
Bible Verse Bracelets:
Proverbs 18:24b

"There is a friend who
sticks closer than a

Ask the children if they
can think of one Friend
who sticks closer than
any brother, sister, or
best friend....?
Bible Song:
"What a Friend We Have In Jesus,"
by Flying Colors from the "Bible
Camp Songs" CD.
Provide round snack crackers with cheese
between them to be two "magnets" stuck
together.  Alternately, use Oreos or other
"sandwich" type cookies.
Morning Circle Time
Introduce the number 2 to the children.  Show them the numeral
2.  Clap with the children 2 times while saying "one, two."  Ask the
children to count how many feet they have, how many eyes, ears,
hands, arms, and legs.  Review the numbers 0, 1, and 2 by showing
the numbers then clapping the appropriate number of times.  It's
always fun to catch someone out with the number 0!

Show the children a
pair of magnets.  Demonstrate how two
magnets react to each other.  What happens when you turn one
magnet in the opposite direction?  Show how two magnets can
either push or pull each other depending upon position.  Get a
powerful magnet and demonstrate the strength of the magnetic
force.  Show how a strong magnet placed under a table can move a
metal object across its surface.
Music & Movement
Play some music and place the children in
pairs.  Tell the children their arms are magnets,
and explain that they are to dance (or hop or
turn in circles) with their arms "stuck" to each
other.  Try "magnetizing" other body parts like
ankles, legs, hips, and heads.  
Magnetic Matching (Page 1)
Provide an assortment of pictures of various objects
such as farm animals, household items, etc.  Provide
make matches.  Alternately, provide the same set of
BOTH pictures and place them all face down on a table.
 Show the children how to play a memory game by
randomly peeking underneath each picture until they
find all the matching pairs.
Magnetic Art
Put several Magna-Doodle toys, Woolie Willie toys, or
similar toys that use iron shavings and a magnetic
"pen."  Encourage the children to try to write the
number 2 with the magnetic pen, then try creating
their own pictures.
Magnet Exploration (Page 1)
Provide a table full of various types of magnets as well
as a variety of objects that may (or may not) stick to
them.  Objects might include paper clips, buttons, toy
cars, bottle caps, small plastic animals, bits of tree
bark, marbles, etc.  Discuss what works and what
doesn't as the children experiment with magnetism
Handwriting Practice:  2
This is an optional handwriting worksheet for children who
are ready to practice tracing numbers.  There is the number
two for children to color in and trace as well as a clown  
chasing two balloons.

Two Worksheet
Magnetic Corporative Painting
Prepare one long table by taping down a long continuous sheet of butcher paper
or paper table covering.  Gear up the children in paint shirts, and place big dollops
of various colors of paint at random points over the paper.  Let the children
choose from a selection of small metal objects, such as nuts and bolts, washers,
paper clips, etc. and instruct them to place the objects wherever they wish on the
paper.  Choose some of the children to be "painters" and hand them magnets
powerful enough to move the objects through the table.  Let these children go
under the table and move the magnets around to begin the "painting" process.  
Encourage the other children to help the "painters" move their "brushes" in the
correct spots, and give feedback about how the painting is developing.  After a
while, let the children switch places to allow everyone to experience both sides of
the table.  Display your masterpiece on the wall when it's dry!

'sure stick.' Alphabet assortments come with more of the
letters you need most (extra vowels a, e, i, o, u, and consonants
b, l, m, r, s, and t), and include punctuation marks.
Read: "Jesus is my Special Friend" by Susan S. Balika
Take some time to talk with the children about their friends.  
Do they have one or two that are extra-special?  Help them
understand that they have a friend in Jesus who sticks even
closer to them.  Just like when two magnets stick together,
when we ask Jesus into our hearts, he always stays in us, helping
us and being our closest friend.
Optional Craft:
Children love to take home things with their names on them!  You
can make these fun fridge magnets with just a little preparation.

Craft Foam
Sticky Foam Letters
Roll of Magnet Tape
Optional:  Foam Animal Shapes

Prep:  Cut your Craft Foam to the size and shape (depending on the
size of your foam letters, leave enough room for the child with the
longest name!)  If needed, write each child's name on a card for
them to copy.

Assembly:  Let children choose the color of magnet they want, and
have them find the letters needed to spell their names.  When

Electric Field Trip:
If you live near a power plant, consider arranging a
tour for the children to demonstrate how magnets are
involved in creating the electricity that powers our
schools, churches, and homes.
Children can create structures, build on imagination skills
and experience the fun and mystery of magnetic
construction. These jumbo sized pieces are magnetized and
connect together easily. Designed for small hands and huge
