Week nine of Play Through The Bible is the story of the call of Samuel.

If you haven’t read the introduction to this series yet I recommend going here. For all the plans in one place, go here.


Week Nine – The Call of Samuel


Focus Point

Samuel listened to God.

Story Time Tips

  • We read “Samuel Listens” starting on page 110 of The Rhyme Bible Storybook and “Samuel Listens” starting on page 88 of The Rhyme Bible Storybook for Toddlers.
  • On the first page of the story in The Rhyme Bible talk about how Hannah prayed for a son. Talk about the things that you can pray for.
  • Go back over the part where Samuel kept going to Eli and act it out.

Activity

Grab a couple of people figurines and some cloths. Fold the cloths into little beds and use the people to act out the story between Eli and Samuel. Talk about how Samuel was listening to Eli and to God.

Discussion

Parent: “Where did Samuel go when he heard his name called?”

Child: “To Eli.”

Parent: “What did Eli say?”

Child: “It wasn’t me – go to bed!”

Parent: “Who was really calling Samuel?”

Child: “God!”

Then have your child list the things he or she wants to pray for and then write them down on the craft sticks. Then, when you have your time to pray together choose one of the sticks and pray about what is written down.

We’ve been enjoying painting lately, so we just decided to print out another Samuel coloring sheet and paint it! We also decided to take a break and only do four craft days this week.
