Engaging children in the Bible

Victorian Council of Christian Education

Imagine any or all of the following taking place over the course of a few weeks in the life of a group of children or particularly for one child on your heart:

– hearing a Bible story well told with facial and body expression

– being invited to help present this Bible story to others so that they can dig into it, understand it, love God more and follow God’s ways for their lives more closely

– responding positively to participate and contribute to the life of the faith community

– bringing the drama of the actions (verbs) and emotions (feelings and thoughts) of each section of the Bible story to life using one of a variety of dramatic, visual or performing arts, e.g. drama, drawing, animation, pipe cleaner figures, clay models, Lego, toys, music, song, fun, play etc.
