Twelve Baskets Full

Wednesday: Twelve Baskets Full
Bible Lesson: Feeding the Big Crowd
Age Groups:
  • preschool
Equipment Needed:
  • empty ice-cream buckets (for each child)
  • bread and fish items
Each child is given a plastic one gallon ice-cream bucket, which you call a basket. There are items scattered about that represent loaves or pieces of bread and fish. The children find these items and collect the pieces of fish and bread in the baskets. For the fish and bread, use items that will not blow away. For the fish, you can use the sponge fish from the other day (possibly wet if it's windy).
Remind the children that the disciples collected twelve baskets full of leftover pieces, even though Jesus started with just one little boy's lunch.
