Parable of the Sower Coloring Pages
Parable of the Soils Object Lesson
Watch this video from Seeds Family Worship as the demonstrate this parable to a younger child. You could do this same illustration in your class or show this video if you have a larger class. I like this as a hands on learning activity for preschoolers.
Video Story: The Parable of the Sower
You could use this animated video clip to teach the parable of the sower. It follows very close to the Bible passage and the added visuals will help children better understand what Jesus was saying. This would be helpful in a family devotion or homeschooling setting. If you have media access in your children’s church it would also work with a large group of children.
Preschool Song About Seeds
If you are teaching a preschool class, you might like this video from Cullen’s Abc’s. It is a simple song about how seeds grow. You could use it along with a preschool lesson about Jesus’ parable of the sower.
