1 Bible Point Bible Verse The Lord himself watches over you! (Psalm 121:5a). Growing Closer to Jesus Children will n hear a story about the king s bad dream, n learn that God is with them even though they can t see him, and n help each other remember that God is watching over them. Teacher Enrichment Bible Basis n Daniel helps the king understand his dream. Daniel 2:1-3, 19 Daniel Helps the King Understand His Dream Lesson 12 God watches over us when we re scared. The dreams Nebuchadnezzar was having were not ordinary dreams; they were troubling dreams with eternal significance. God the God of Daniel, not the false god of Nebuchadnezzar was using the dreams to reveal information to the king. Why did the king s advisers speak in Aramaic (Daniel 2:4)? It was the common language that most everyone in the area knew. In fact, Daniel 2:4 7:28 is written entirely in Aramaic. Apparently the subject matter of these chapters was intended to be accessible to people from a wide variety of cultural backgrounds, not just to the Hebrews. Notice that when Daniel was confronted with the likelihood of execution, he didn t fret or panic. Instead, he went right to work on a plan to show God s power to the Babylonian king. Daniel knew that God was watching over him and his friends. Notice that in interpreting the king s dream, Daniel not only saved himself and his friends, but also all of the wise men of Babylon. And when God revealed the mystery of the dreams to Daniel, Daniel didn t take credit for it. Instead, he explained that God had revealed the mystery to him. Prayer Read 1 Peter 5:7. Think about Daniel s situation when the king decreed that Daniel and his friends should be executed. How do you think Daniel was able to give his worries to God? Pray: Dear God, thanks for your care when I m worried or afraid. Help me to trust you with my fears concerning Help the children I teach with their fears about Before the Lesson n Collect the necessary items for the activities you plan to use, referring to the Classroom Supplies and Learning Lab Supplies listed on the chart. n Make photocopies of the Today I Learned handout (at the end of this lesson) to send home with your children. n Pray for the children in your class and for God s direction in teaching the lesson. 165

3 Daniel Helps the King Understand His Dream Welcome Time SUPPLIES: Shirt Name Tags (p. 24), scissors, marker, safety pins or tape Kneel down and make eye contact with children as they arrive. Greet each child individually with an enthusiastic smile. Thank each child for coming to class today. As children arrive, ask them about last week s lesson or take-home page. Use questions such as What did you tell your family about Daniel and his friends at school? or How did God watch over you in school this week? Say: Today we re going to learn that God watches over us when we re scared. Hand out the shirt name tags children made during Lesson 1, and help them attach the name tags to their clothing. Have some extra shirt name tags on hand for children who weren t in class last week or to replace damaged name tags. Direct children to the Let s Get Started activities you ve set up. Let s Get Started Set up one or more of the following activities for children to do as they arrive. After you greet each child, invite him or her to choose an activity. Circulate among the children to offer help as needed and direct children s conversation toward the point of today s lesson. Ask questions such as What do you do when you feel scared? or Tell me about a dream you ve had. n Option 1: Fluffy Friends SUPPLIES: stuffed animals Have children choose an animal to comfort. Tell them that the animals are scared. Have the children hold the animals and tell the animals that God watches over us when we re scared. Have children make one bed on the floor to lie in for Option 2 so they don t lie down in beds they created that aren t sturdy. If you don t have enough blankets to go around, have children use jackets, sweaters, or dress-up clothes for blankets. n Option 2: King s Bed SUPPLIES: bedsheets, blankets, pillows Provide bedsheets, blankets, and pillows. Help children use the bedding and other classroom furniture to make a bed fit for a king. For example, they might drape a bedsheet over a table and set pillows and blankets on it. As children create their beds, talk with them about what it would be like to sleep in a big palace. Tell them that today s Bible story is about a king who had a bad dream. 167

4 Lesson 12 n Option 3: Night Pictures SUPPLIES: black construction paper, light-colored gel pens Set out the supplies, and encourage the children to create pictures of what the night sky looks like. Have them add stars and the moon to their pictures. Talk with them about how we might be afraid at night, and remind them that God watches over us when we re scared. When everyone has arrived and you re ready to move on to Bible Story Time, encourage children to finish what they re doing and get ready to clean up. n Pick-Up Time SUPPLIES: CD player Lead children in singing Come Along With Me (track 2) track 2 with the CD to the tune of Come and Go With Me. Encourage children to sing along as they help clean up the room. Come along with me and pick up all our things, Pick up all our things, Pick up all our things. Come along with me and pick up all our things So our room will be clean. (Repeat 2x.) Bible Story Time n Setting the Stage SUPPLIES: CD player Tell the children you ll play a fun marching song to get their track 10 attention. Explain that when you play the song, the children are to stop what they re doing and march to you. Practice this signal a few times as you play Marching Music (track 10 on the CD). Encourage children to respond quickly so you ll have time for all the fun activities you ve planned. Ask: What did you do or make when you came to our class today? (Comforted stuffed animals; made a bed for a king; made night pictures.) Say: Some of you comforted scared stuffed animals and learned that God is with you when you re scared. Some of you made a bed for a king, and some of you made a picture of the night sky. Let s all play a game together now. Hold up a pinwheel, and let children look at it. Then say: I m going to hide the pinwheel, and then you have to find it. 168

5 Have all the children cover their eyes and look away as you hide the pinwheel. Make sure you hide it in a place where children will be able to find it. Then say: One, two, three Please find the pinwheel for me. Let children look for the pinwheel. When they find it, hide it again. Play the game several times. Then announce that this will be the last time. Hide the pinwheel so that children won t find it, such as in a high cupboard or behind a bulletin board. Allow no more than 30 seconds for children to look. Say: We can t find the pinwheel, can we? But we know it has to be in the room. Where do you think it is? (It disappeared; you put it outside; it s in here, but we can t find it.) Bring out the pinwheel for everyone to see. Say: Even when we couldn t see the pinwheel, we knew it was here. Set the pinwheel aside, and continue: We can t see God either, but we know he s here. Sometimes when we re scared, we feel sad and alone. But we re not alone because God is with us. We can be sure that God watches over us when we re scared because the Bible says so. Psalm 121:5 in the Bible says, The Lord himself watches over you! Let s say that together: The Lord himself watches over you! Let s hear a story now about a king of a country called Babylon. This king was scared! Daniel Helps the King Understand His Dream n Bible Song and Prayer Time SUPPLIES: Bible, CD player tracks 4 & 5 Have children jump to the story area, and sit down. Say: Now it s time to choose a Bible person to bring me the Bible marked with today s Bible story. As we sing our Bible song, we ll pass around our special Bible. The person who s holding the Bible when the music stops will be our Bible person today. Remember that everyone will get a chance to be our Bible person. Lead children in singing I m So Glad for the Bible (track 4) with the CD to the tune of Give Me Oil in My Lamp. As you sing, pass around the special Bible. I m so glad for the Bible. Keep me learnin, learnin, learnin. I m so glad for God s book today. I m so glad for the Bible. Keep me learnin, learnin, learnin Keep me learnin all about his way. (Repeat first verse.) Let me hear bout God s love Keep me learnin, learnin, learnin. Let me hear bout God s love for me. Let me hear bout God s love Keep me learnin, learnin, learnin. Let s shine the light for all to see. When the music stops, invite the child who s holding the Bible to bring it to you. Stamp the child s hand with the book stamp, and thank the child for bringing you the Bible. Then stamp the other children s hands. Return the book stamp and ink pad to the Learning Lab. Say: I m thankful for [name of child who brought you the Bible]. Tell each child that you re thankful for him or her. Let s thank God together for all our friends in this class. 169

6 Lesson 12 Lead children in singing I m So Glad We re Together (track 5) with the CD to the tune of Give Me Oil In My Lamp. I m so glad we re together. Keep us prayin, prayin, prayin. I m so glad we re all here today. I m so glad we re together. Keep us prayin, prayin, prayin Prayin for each other every day. Lead children in folding their hands and bowing their heads as you continue to sing. Thank you, Lord, for each one. Keep me thankful, thankful, thankful. Thank you for everyone who s here. Thank you, Lord, for each one. Keep me thankful, thankful, thankful Thankful for our friends both far and near. The children in your class may not know much about wise men and dream interpretation, but they know what it feels like to have a scary dream. They wake up in the dark alone, scared, and confused. Children will be comforted to learn that God is watching over them when they re afraid. Use this lesson to teach the 3- and 4-year-olds in your class to rely on God in scary situations. n Hear and Tell the Bible Story SUPPLIES: Bible, chair Open the Bible to Daniel 2, and show it to the children. Say: Our Bible story comes from the book of Daniel in the Bible. Our Bible Big Book shows us pictures of our Bible story. Have children sit in a circle. Place an overturned chair in the middle of the circle, hold up a plastic lei, and say: Let s see if you can remember what s been happening to Daniel and his friends. I ll show you a picture from the Bible Big Book, and then I ll pass around this lei. Take turns tossing the lei onto one of the chair legs and then telling me what you remember about the story in the picture. If the lei doesn t hook onto a chair leg, say God watches over us when we re scared. Open the Big Book to page 1, and pass the lei around the circle. Then turn the page so children can see pages 2 and 3. When everyone has shared something about Daniel and his friends, show children the picture on page 4. Fold back page 5 so they don t see the picture of the golden statue. Then set the Big Book aside. Say: Our Bible story today is about a time the king of Babylon had a bad dream. You can help me tell this story by doing some special motions. Each time I say king, make a crown with your hands. Let s try that. Let children practice making crowns, and then continue: Each time I say dream, lay your head on your hands as if you re sleeping. Let s practice that. Let children practice the action. Then read the following story. Pause each time you say king or dream to let children do their actions. Say: One night when the palace was dark and everyone was asleep, the king woke up. He d had a bad dream and he was scared. So the king called 170

7 for his helpers. He called for all of the smartest people in the palace. Help! he called. All the helpers in the palace came running to see what was wrong with the king. What s wrong, your majesty? they all wanted to know. So the king told them about his bad dream. The helpers didn t know what to say. The king was still scared he wanted to know what his dream meant! But the helpers just shook their heads. How could they know what the dream meant? Daniel heard about the king s dream. He went straight to the palace and told the king he d help him. God helped Daniel know just what to say to make the king feel better. When the king went back to bed that night, he wasn t scared anymore because he knew God was watching over him. Daniel thanked God for helping him. After reading the story, ask the following questions: What happened to make the king scared? (He had a bad dream; he didn t know what the dream meant.) What do you do when you re scared? (I cry and yell for mom and dad; I hide under the covers.) What did the king do to make him feel better after he had a bad dream? (Called his helpers; talked to Daniel.) What helps you feel better when you ve had a bad dream? (My dad holds me; I turn on the light; I say prayers.) Say: God watches over us when we re scared. God showed Daniel how to help the king feel better, and God can help us feel better, too. Say: God sent his Son, Jesus, to us. Jesus lived on the earth just like us, and he knows what it s like to feel scared. Ask: What things might have scared Jesus? (Being alone; the dark.) Say: God sent Jesus to help us because God loves us. Let s all tell God thank you for sending Jesus. Lead the children in saying: Thank you, God, for sending Jesus! Daniel Helps the King Understand His Dream n Do the Bible Story SUPPLIES: CD player Before class, remove the linking hearts and stars from the track 17 Learning Lab, and link them into a long necklace. Stand beside the CD player. Have children sit down in a circle. Hold up the linked necklace. Say: When we dream at night, there are stars in the sky. We re going to play an activity now to help us remember that God loves us and God watches over us when we re scared, even when it s nighttime and there are stars in the sky. 171

8 Lesson 12 Choose one child to hold the linking hearts and stars necklace. Tell the child to begin walking around the inside of the circle while the rest of you sing God Watches Over You (track 17) to the tune of A-Tisket, A-Tasket. (Children may need to scoot out in order to allow room for the child to walk around on the inside of the circle.) Fill in the blank with that child s name as he or she walks. God watches over you, Over [name]. When you re playing or at home, God watches over you each day Watches over you each day. (Repeat.) When the verse is over, stop the CD and encourage the walking child to put the linking hearts and stars necklace on the child in front of him or her. Then have the child with the necklace stand up and name a time when God watches over him or her, such as God watches over me when I sleep, or God watches over me when I m at school. Then that child becomes the walking child. Restart the music and play again. Play until all the children have a chance to wear the necklace. Ask: When are you scared? (I m scared when I go to bed; I m scared when it s stormy outside.) How can you trust God to help you? (I can pray and ask God to help me; I can sing songs to God; I can remember how God helped the king when he was scared.) Say: We all get scared sometimes, but we know that God watches over us when we re scared. Closing n Where s God? SUPPLIES: construction paper, tape Before class, roll up a sheet of construction paper, and tape it together to form a telescope. Tape the telescope to Whiskers paw. Bring out Whiskers the Mouse, and go through the following puppet script. When you finish the script, put Whiskers away and out of sight. Let children watch for a few moments as Whiskers looks for something with the telescope. To children, say: Whiskers seems to be looking for something. Let s help him. Don t tell children what Whiskers is looking for. Let them help him in any way they choose. After a few minutes begin the following dialogue with Whiskers. 172

9 Daniel Helps the King Understand His Dream Whiskers: All right, where is he? Whiskers: God. Where is who? Whiskers, are you looking for God? Whiskers: Yes. You tell us every Sunday that God watches over us. But I don t see him anywhere! How can God be watching over us when he s not even here? But Whiskers, God is here. Whiskers: (Looking around quickly) Where? God is with us, but we can t see him. Whiskers: You mean God is invisible? Well, yes. Whiskers: Well, God wasn t with me last night! Of course he was, Whiskers. What made you think he wasn t? Whiskers: I had a scary dream. Then I woke up, and it was all dark. I called for my mommy and daddy, but it took them so long to come to my room. I was scared! Whiskers, God is with you all the time even in the dark. And even when you felt so scared. Children, let s tell Whiskers what happened to the king of Babylon. (Lead children in telling Whiskers that the king had a bad dream, but Daniel told him what it meant. Explain that God helped Daniel make the king feel better.) Just as God watched over Daniel and the king, God was watching over you, too. Whiskers: But I felt like I was all alone. Children, let s whisper the Bible Point to Whiskers so he ll remember that God is with him next time he s scared. (Have children take turns whispering the Bible Point to Whiskers.) Next time you feel scared, remember that God watches over you when you re scared, even if you can t see him. Whiskers: I ll remember. Thanks, friends. Goodbye!

10 Lesson 12 If you have a large class and you want to give all your children a chance to be in the center, choose four children at a time. n Watching Circle SUPPLIES: CD player track 17 Have children form a circle holding hands. Select two children to lie down in the middle of the circle as if sleeping. Say: God watches over us when we re scared. Anytime we re scared, we ask God to help us even if it s the middle of the night. Let s sing our song about God watching over us. We ll carefully walk in a circle around [names of children in the center] as we sing. At the end of each verse, the two children in the middle will say: God watches over me! Then we ll pick two new people to be in the center as we sing again. Lead children in singing God Watches Over You (track 17) with the CD to the tune of A-Tisket, A-Tasket. As you sing the song, fill in the names of the children in the center. God watches over you, Over [names]. When you re playing or at home, God watches over you each day Watches over you each day. (Repeat.) Play the song several times. Each time choose two new children to be in the center. After the last time, ask the children in the center to join the circle, and close with a prayer similar to this one: Dear God, thanks for loving us so much. We do get scared a lot. Please help us remember that you watch over us when we re scared. We love you. In Jesus name, amen. Growing closer to Jesus extends beyond the classroom. Photocopy the Today I Learned handout (at the end of this lesson) for this week, and send it home with the children. Encourage parents to use the handout to plan meaningful family activities to reinforce this week s topic. 174

11 Daniel Helps the King Understand His Dream For Extra Time If you have a long class time or want to add additional elements to your lesson, try one of the following activities. n Lively Learning: Wake Up the King Choose one child to be the King, and have that child lie down on the floor with his or her eyes closed. Ask the rest of the class to form a circle around the King. Choose one child from the circle to step forward and say, Wake up, King! It s a bad dream. Then that child steps back while the King sits up. Lead the children in saying three times, God is watching over us. After the third time, the King must guess who woke him or her up. Whether the King guesses correctly or not, choose a new King each time. n Make to Take: Night-Light Covers Give each child a 4-inch square of black or dark blue construction paper. Help each child draw a simple geometric shape on the paper. Then demonstrate how to use a hole punch to punch out the outline of the design. As children work, talk about things that scare them at night. Encourage children to take home their shapes and tape them over the lampshade of a bedside lamp to remind them that God watches over us when we re scared. n Treat to Eat: Beautiful Bread Give each child two Ritz crackers. Show the children how to spread cream cheese on the crackers and then place an M&M s candy in the middle of each cracker. Give each child a cookie stick, and demonstrate how to put the cookie stick between the crackers to form eyeglasses. Explain that God doesn t need glasses to see us. As children are eating their glasses, remind them that God watches over us when we re scared. See page 5. n Story Picture: The King s Dream Set out fabric scraps and glue. Give each child a copy of the Today I Learned handout (at the end of this lesson). Help children glue the fabric scraps onto the king s blanket. As children work, have them tell you about things that scare them at night. Remind them that God watches over us when we re scared. 175

12 God watches over us when we re scared. Lesson 12 Today your child learned that GOD WATCHES OVER US WHEN WE RE SCARED. Children heard how Daniel helped the king of Babylon after a bad dream (Daniel 2:1-3, 19). They talked about things that scare them. Help me learn this: The Lord himself watches over you! (Psalm 121:5a). Ask me: n Why was the king of Babylon afraid? n When do you feel afraid? n How can our family help each other when we re afraid? Family Fun n Take a family tour of your home. Be sure to include the attic, basement, and closets. Talk about how God is with you in each room. Encourage children to share how each room makes them feel. Remind them that God is watching over them no matter where they are in the house. n Play Hide-and-Seek with your whole family. When everyone has been found, remind children that even when we re hidden, God is watching over us, so we don t have to be afraid. Daniel Helps the King Understand His Dream (Daniel 2:1-3, 19) 176 Permission to photocopy this handout from Group s Hands-On Bible Curriculum, Preschool, granted for local church use.
