The Simply Loved Elementary Holiday Year 1 lesson plan is designed to help kids celebrate Jesus through his birth and resurrection.
Simply Loved's Holiday Year 1 curriculum kit includes four lessons—two for the Easter season and two for the Christmas season. Each lesson features a lovable Bible Memory Buddy that creates a visual and emotional connection to every lesson through engaging videos, helping kids learn and remember this special unit's Bible Memory Verse. In Holiday Year 1, kids explore Bible truths along with Olivia the Barn Owl (Psst... if you've used Group's VBS, you might recognize this character!)

- This kit contains everything you need to plan, prepare, and teach the Simply Loved Holiday Year 1 lessons.
- One kit will serve a single classroom of up to 25 kids (limited only by the Bible Memory Buddy Stickers, also sold separately).
- If you have multiple elementary Sunday school classrooms, you can either purchase additional kits, purchase additional components (Leader Guide, DVD, etc.), or consider purchasing the "Plus Digital" kit instead which includes a USB drive, allowing you to reproduce additional teaching materials as needed—plus it comes with special bonus resources!
Simply Loved is a revolutionary Sunday school program that takes the complication out of recruiting, gathering supplies, and teaching lessons so you and your volunteers can get back to what matters most—helping kids learn to love God and each other.
