Amos was a prophet, but he was also a farmer. He was a simple man, but he loved God, and God spoke to him. We don’t have to have fancy jobs, expensive houses, or loads of travel experience to have a relationship with God. All God wants is an open and willing heart.Here is how we explored this story.
For this story, we listened to Dan and Louie Bible Stories: Amos, the Farmer Prophet. In this retelling they talk about how Amos was a farmer, and maybe that was why the people didn’t believe him.
While we listened, we played with ourFisher Price Little People Farm. I added in an oatmeal bin for some sensory. Vale played with all the animals, feeding them oatmeal, loading up the tractor, and practicing her animal sounds.
Naomi, I sat in her high chair, and gave her some oatmeal and a couple of animals to play with. She mostly enjoyed eating the oatmeal.
