A Bible Reading Plan for Little Ones {March Edition: Jesus' Death and Resurrection}

Every month of this year, Lord willing, I intend to provide you with a free printable Bible Reading Plan you can use with your toddlers and preschoolers (though older kids could definitely benefit from it too!). I'm picking one theme or topic for the month, and culling relevant passages from both the Old and New Testaments, just to give our kids broad exposure to Scripture as a whole. 

Some of the passages may be a bit intense or over their heads. But I do believe that God always blesses His Word and works through it, and if we sow that Word in our children's hearts, He can and will use it for whatever purpose He chooses. This is a tool that will hopefully make it easier for you as a parent to do the sowing. 

I've marked three verses- one for most Mondays- that would also make great memory verses. You can recite and review them over the course of the week with your little people- or not!- but they are available if you'd like to make Scripture memory a part of your family's life. We personally aren't using the memory verses, because we're working to memorize scriptures in a children's catechism

Because it's Easter month this year, March's theme is the Death and Resurrection of Christ. The selected passages are a bit longer as a whole than the last two month's- my goal is to give our kids a big picture introduction to the Easter story, and I found it difficult to chop the sections smaller. We'll all just do our best to have patience and work through them. Even if our kids wiggle or chatter a bit, I think we'd be surprised to know how much they actually retain!

You can find this month's Bible Reading Plan here


If you like this plan, I think you would like my new ebook! It's called Read the Bible to Your Kids: A Year of Simple Plans to get into the Word Together

I've created 13 topical, month long plans with passages from both the Old and New Testament. The passages are short {for short attention spans!}, and the PDF file can easily be printed off for you to check off boxes as you read.

It's a great, simple solution for families who want to build Word-centered solutions. You can find out what people are saying about it, the topics the plans cover, and download your copy for only $4.99 right here.
