Were you able to check out our Online Parenting Class video on fun ways to study scripture with your kids? Well, if you missed it then you can go to https://vimeo.com/parentministry/review/141593132/13f9137123 to watch the video.
Just like we cannot expect our children to be proficient in math or English without sufficient instruction and practice, we cannot expect our children to know the Bible without sufficient exposure (reading and teaching).
Another valuable truth is that with so many things competing for their time and attention we need to make learning scripture both interesting and fun. To do this, try any one of the following:
Let family members take turns selecting a household item that represents a Bible story. Family members have to guess what story it is, then the person whose item it is tells the story.
While sitting around the dinner table, one person starts telling a Bible story then says, “Pass to (someone’s name). They have to finish the story.
Divide your family into two teams and draw Bible stories. The first team to win three rounds wins.
Have an old-fashioned Sword drill: Everyone holds their Bible in their laps (closed). The MC calls out a scripture reference (example: Hebrews 13:7). The first person to find it stands up and reads the verse.
WARNING: You and your family will enjoy time spent together learning God’s Word.
