In this character lesson for preschool, we’ll look at the Bible characters, Adam and Eve. In addition, we’ll discuss parts of the story that relate to moral values that we can teach our kids.
In our homeschool, we weave in character lessons as often as possible. I’m a huge proponent of character education with a Biblical worldview. How about you? Do you use lessons and resources to help you teach character lessons to your preschooler?
This article will be somewhat of a guide for homeschooling parents on how to teach their preschoolers about the Bible characters Adam and Eve. Specifically, I’ll explain the following concepts for parents who want to encourage godly character traits in their preschoolers/kindergarteners.
The book of Genesis is home to some very key lessons that we all need. It tells the beautiful origin story of our existence and reveals the intentionality that went into God’s thought process that led to us being here today.
The opening words in Genesis 1:1, “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth,” begin the greatest love story ever told. Later in Genesis 1:26, God says, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” We are products of a divine decision and intentional actions. We are not cosmic coincidences as many would have us believe, and we must teach this beautiful love story to our children.
Adam and Eve bore the perfect image of God. They were made in His likeness, and their obedience and open fellowship with God depicts a bond of love. They trusted God and spoke with Him regularly, without fear, shame, or guilt. (See Genesis 2: 15-18, 25) They delighted in His presence, and they diligently did the work that God commanded them to do. However, because of disobedience, we see where their characters later change, and they go from running to God with open arms to hiding from Him and trying to keep secrets from the God who knows everything. (Genesis 3:8, 9)
This behavior is often mirrored in our children. This is one of the reasons why we must have Bible character lessons for our preschoolers. If we can help them to understand the fight between the light and the darkness around us, the light representing the hand of God in our lives and the darkness representing the invasive nature of sin, then they will be better able to connect with us as parents.
Of course, the attention span of children is not the same as adults, and neither is their analytical abilities. So, we will have to be creative in our approach. There are some fun activities that we can use to incorporate these Bible character lessons for preschoolers.
There are numerous ways to share God with our children, and it’s our responsibility as parents to ensure that they learn what the world will not teach them. We must teach about Bible characters and their interactions with God to our preschoolers, in their most formative years, so that they can learn that God made all of us. They can understand that He gave us rules not to harm us but to bring us joy. He prescribed a way of life that is in place for our well-being.
