Morning Time

When you go into your child’s room, cuddle them and say: “Good morning, [child’s name]! It’s time to open your curtains so the light is not hiding. Jesus says to let our light shine too. Don’t hide it. Shine it!”

Drive Time

While on the go, look for the brightest light you can find. Talk about what makes that light shine so bright. Then, talk about how doing what Jesus says is what makes our light shine bright!

Cuddle Time

Cuddle with your child and pray: “God, thank You for sending Your Son, Jesus, to show us how to love each other. Help us do what Jesus says so our light will shine for the world to see that Jesus loves them and wants to be their friend forever.”

Bath Time

Add bubble bath and a few bath toys to bath time. Use the toys, bubbles, wash cloth…everything in the tub…to play a game of Simon Says. As you dry your child off, say: “That was fun! You can do what Jesus says too! Jesus loves you and will always know what’s best for you.”
