Last week I was interviewed on WFCJ 93.7 FM and one of the questions towards the end of the interview was:
What do you do at home to help your children learn more about the Bible?
I responded with a few ideas and Lynn from the morning show on WFCJ, was very enthusiastic about the ideas. So today I wanted to list creative ways to teach your children the Bible. Teaching children to know the Bible is so very important.
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Prov. 22:6
I’m guessing you think so too or you wouldn’t be here. So let’s begin, in no particular order:
1. Have a daily devotion with your children.
Using a devotional book is a great way to keep on track. Check out this list of 7 Devotionals Your Kids Will Love.
2. Integrate learning the Bible in a fun way through this Bible Scavenger Hunt.
On a rainy day, you can use this free Indoor Bible Scavenger Hunt printable.
3. Watch a fun and fabulous Bible teaching video from my awesome friends at What’s in the Bible?
Right now on Amazon, you can get some early cover design DVD’s for only $9.99.
4. Download and play Bible apps.
You can find the 9 best Bible apps for kids that I recommend.
5. Give children the opportunity to read God’s Word on their own through Bible reading plans designed specifically for them.
Currently I have FREE children’s Bible reading plans for Matthew, Luke and John.
6. Attend a Christian camp.
For the last few years, my children have attended a Christian summer camp for a week and they absolutely love it. If you’re not sure about a location close to you, a wonderful resource for researching camps is the Christian Camp and Conference Association.
7. Attend Vacation Bible School in your community or at your church.
Christian bookstores carry Vacation Bible School materials that typically cover a week of fun for children to learn the Bible. Another wonderful resource for Vacation Bible School materials is What’s in the Bible?
8. Use the Neighborhood Bible Time resources to host a neighborhood “Bible school for a week.”
I attended Neighborhood Bible Time several years as a youth and teen and I absolutely loved it.
BONUS TIP: Watch GSNTV’s Emmy-Nominated Game Show, The American Bible Challenge- especially on June 19th!! (Hint- go Team #LiftYourVoice!)
