My Kids & The Beginner’s Bible:

The Beginner's Bible Noah's Ark

When we got the Bible in the mail the kids were excited to flip through it. Before moving back out to Indiana I was a Sunday School teacher and taught a class from age 4-15. My kids enjoyed re-living the stories I had once shared with them in my own class and now were reading about in their book.

Who is the Beginner’s Bible for?

The Beginner’s Bible is Perfect for Kids that have just begun reading. While it is great to be able to read the bible to our kids, it is just as important for them to be able to read it on their own as well.  I loved this bible because now Nicoli, who was too young at the time will have stories to go through with his siblings even when I’m not at home. Since they already know them they will enjoy sharing their thoughts and memories of what I taught with him.

I think the journey through The Beginner’s Bible is a great one. If you read or heard the stories in your childhood you will slip back into time and remember then and be able to see the differences. Plus the pictures are cute! I love the one below. Isn’t it funny?

Crafts to Go Along with The Beginner’s Bible

I have always loved to teach my children and reading the bible is no different. Some of my kids love to learn by doing crafts to tie with what they are learning. A few like to play games and others are fine just reading.  It tends to help them remember what they were taught when they do crafts. Over at their website they have more games to play, coloring pages to download, and mazes.

Bible Craft ideas for the Beginner’s Bible

God’s Promise– A beautiful cloud with a quote (Genesis 9:13) glued to it. Streaming down would be every color (rainbow) streamers hanging off the cloud. This can be easily hung in a child’s room or refrigerator.

Coat of Many Colors can be done using a paper bag and gluing or coloring with all the colors. We took a bunch of crepe paper (streamer paper) and cut them into rectangles and glued them onto the bag. Don’t forget to cut out the armholes and neck holes. If you cut straight down the middle of the bag it opens into a vest. Kids had a lot of fun with this.

Jonah in the Whale– This one is always a favorite. You’ll need a clothespin and draw a big fish/whale. Cut the whale in two right along his mouth to his tail. Glue the top portion to the upper part of the clothespin, the bottom part to the bottom of the clothespin. Don’t forget to draw Jonah and cut him out. He will be placed on the opposite side of the clothespin inside the Whale’s mouth. Every time you squeeze the clothespin his mouth will open and you will see Jonah. Release the clothespin and the whale clothes Jonah into his belly.
