Simple Bible Lessons

Every morning I try to purpose a simple Bible lesson with my kiddos.

It isn’t fancy.  I use a few materials that I keep in cubbies in my playroom:

~The Jesus StoryBook Bible

The Jesus Storybook Bible: Every Story Whispers His Name

~Clipboards (that hang on my playroom wall – idea from pinterest)

~Writing Tools: Crayons, markers, pencils

-Paper… I just use computer paper

~Little Toys that we use to act out the stories

1) I read / summarize a story from “The Jesus Storybook Bible”  in my most expressive, kid-friendly voice that engages my little ones’ attention.

2) I sing a song about it (sometimes I make it up) but other times I use songs I grew up learning OR a YouTube video.

3)We act it out with little toys we have  (We choose the characters that seem fitting from our “little toys” cubbie).

4) We “write” about it.  This is the time I model a draw on my clipboard the main idea from the story while I talk about what I am drawing to model the drawing process.

5) Then I write my kiddos names on their papers and I write the date, name of the story, and I write in quotes anything that they tell me about their picture.

That’s it!

Then, I read the same story for the next day or two because it is still fresh, repetition is better for memory recall, & they always want to sing the song they learned the day before again.

Here is one more…



Sean Patrick helped me pick out the toys that would represent David and Goliath for our reenactment.

I really cherish this time with my kids.  It is a very quick and easy but meaningful time shared with them.

    Oh my! How adorable is their singing! I’ve just discovered your blog via Circle of Moms! (I’ll go back and vote for you too! 😉 ) I’m on the lookout for re-designing our daytime routines for my four kiddos that stay at home (The one year old triplets (!) are getting older and we need to restructure!) Thanks for the inspiration to add that vital God element to the day!
