We live in a world obsessed with mobile phones and social media. With all these technological advancements, we are somewhat losing our base and our moral values. So what do we teach our kids, what do we say to them, how do we communicate, how do we teach them about the bible?
Being a strong believer in god, I had been asking myself how can I teach my kids about the bible. It can be really difficult for you as a parent to impart the teachings you want your kids to have. So I came up with some creative ways to teach them about the Bible.
Over course of time I have realized that the best way to teach your kids about anything is to turn it into a fun activity.
Get two boxes and label them “Old Testament” and “New Testament” each, get some bible book cars and set a time (only if you like). Allow your child to go thru the cards and then ask them to place them in the right boxes. As you progress, you would see that you kid is getting better with this Bible game.
So now you want them to learn about the great events that took place and the years as well. A great way to do is by creating a simple mark the spot game or as I like to call it the Bible map. This is an easy to play game, where you can use pictures to depict a particular era and the events that took place. These events should be associated with some dates, ask your kids to fill in the details. Even if they are not able to do it in one go, I am sure they would remember it going forward, as pictures would leave an impression in their memory.
Another great Bible game can be guess the book, read a verse from the book and allow your child to answer the question. Wait, patiently for them to reply, sure it would be difficult at first but it will only get better with practice and age.
Don’t be disappointed at first if your kid is not able to play and guess well with the games. These kids bible games will be fun and a great learning experience once they get used to it. These are a list of few games that I have used, I am sure the internet has many more games for you to explore. Make this a fun activity, rather than something they have to do for sure, every Sunday. Make the Bible games interesting so that your kids want to come back and play more with you!
