Theology with the under 5s

Tom has obviously started mulling theological questions over in his mind. I've had questions from him recently along the lines of "But we can't see Jesus?". After we said his prayers this evening, Tom pondered for a moment and then asked "But God can't give me a cuddle?". I smiled to myself and then gently explained that "No, God can't give you a cuddle like Mummy and Daddy can give you a cuddle, but God loves you very much." I love that Tom has started asking questions about God, but it's new territory for me as to how to explain things to him in a way that he will understand. I think I'm going to need some guidance here!
