Preschool Alphabet: L is For Lions

L  is for Lions and Daniel
Preschool at home ideas and printables including a file folder game!
This is the visual I use for Bible class for Daniel & the Lion's Den. It has a wood base, with a back and sides and shelves to look like rocks carved out. It is spray painted with a stone finish. They loved moving Daniel and roaring! It is interesting that one will line up all the lions in a line, while the other will move them around inside the den. 
This is a summary for Daniel & the Lion's Den for preschool and is found in Daniel 6. Daniel was a governor in the kingdom of Babylon for King Darius. Daniel was such an honorable person, that King Darius was thinking about putting Daniel in charge of the whole kingdom! Some other leaders were jealous and found a way to get Daniel in trouble!

Daniel prayed to God 3 times every day in his upper room. There was a new law that said you could only pray to King Darius for 30 days. But, Daniel only worshipped the One God in Heaven! Daniel was thrown into the lion's den because he kept praying to God! The king was worried about Daniel all night and in the early morning, he hurried to see if Daniel was ok. But, Daniel told the king that God sent His angel to close the lion's mouths to keep Daniel safe. God protected Daniel and Daniel stayed faithful to God.
We used this file folder game for review. More like a re-telling aid. I added a string (ribbon) to Daniel so they could 'drop' him into the 'pit' and arrange the lions. This is a good graphic of Daniel, since he is usually pictured young, but he is quite a bit older. I printed the walls for the inside on gray cardstock. This would also be good for a magnet board, or craft sticks, etc. You can print it here.

I found these lions foamy masks (somewhere) and they enjoyed roaring at each other!

Also, another Pinterest find from several sources, she quickly learned L is for left hand, and she writes with her right hand. Making the L really did help learning the left hand.

I found these foamy lions for them to do, which also has the tiger for T.

There is a maze to take Daniel through the lions (Pac Man style to go through as many lions as you can).

This is one of the L is for lion, llama, etc. pictures to color in the download. There are always other printables in the alphabet packs.  There are always retelling cards to print and let them tell you what they learned about the Bible. And, there are always one or two pictures to color of the Bible facts for each letter. You can download everything here.
Also, here are a couple of the books we read this week. Not pictured, is The Grouchy Ladybug by Eric Carle and Backyard Books Are You a Ladybug? by Judy Allen. They love Pete the Cat so we made sure to read Pete's Big Lunch. We can do counting and colors when we read this book. And, they love the Llama Llama books, and there are 4 L's just in the title! They like Sitting in My Box, and the 2 year old pointed out the lion on each page.
