What You Need
What You Do
Have your child stand in front of you. Then, give them an action and a number of times to do that action. (Example: three jumps) Before the child moves, they must say, “King, May I.” You respond with, “Yes, you may.” Then the child does the movements. Repeat with different numbers and movements. Examples of movements: Jumps, baby steps, marching, one leg hops, giant steps, and walking on tippy toes. Try to keep the numbers under five. Repeat as long as there’s interest.
Say, “We’re going to play a game! I will be the king. I will give you a movement and tell you how many times to do it. If I say, ‘Do three jumps,’ you will do this. (Demonstrate.) Before you move, you have to ask, ‘King, May I.’ Are you ready? (Play game.)
“Great job playing ‘King, May I!’ Today, we learned about a young king who taught people how to go God’s way! King Josiah knew that God’s way is perfect. Whose way is perfect? God’s way is perfect.”
