Cubbies celebrates the spiritual potential of preschoolers (3- to 5-year olds) by helping them develop respect for God, His Son and His Word.
Preschoolers can hardly wait for their next Cubbies club meeting. Whether it’s the fun puppets, the exciting games or all their Cubbies friends, they simply love it. At Story Time each week, preschoolers learn about God – the greatness of His love and His Word – and about His Son, Jesus Christ, the promised Savior. Non-competitive games build excitement and reinforce Story Time lesson themes.
Cubbies helps you lead your child to God early so your child will respect and trust Him for life.
Cubbies encourages parental involvement. Your child’s handbooks feature parent-child activities for home. You will lead your child through handbook sections, called Bear Hugs, to prepare for the next club gathering. Each Bear Hug includes optional activities, called “Under the Apple Tree,” for reviewing Bible verses and lessons learned earlier. An audio CD included in your child’s handbook has review material that you can listen to together.
The Cubbies curriculum features two handbooks. Both are written in a fun, storybook style with read-aloud stories and lovable characters that appeal to preschoolers.
The AppleSeed and HoneyComb handbooks combine basic Scripture memory with parent-child activities to help Cubbies grasp simple biblical truths. Each Cubbies handbook contains a helpful review CD to use at home. One handbook is completed in a club year. Each handbook contains 26 Bear Hug sections along with four special-day sections.
Cubbies receive the AppleSeed Trail emblem for completing the AppleSeed Trail or the HoneyComb Trail emblem for completing the HoneyComb Trail. Trails are at the beginning of each handbook.
Reward your Awana Cubbies at key levels of achievement in the Apple Acres entrance booklet and AppleSeed handbook with bright red and green apple emblems. Cubbies earn four green apple emblems and four red apple emblems during the year. Achievement emblems for the AppleSeed handbook complete the letter “A” on the vest and achievement emblems for the HoneyComb handbook complete the letter “C”.
Cubbies receive a confetti-filled ribbon to take home once they complete each handbook.
