So many times I will play a song with great lyrics and a great message and the kids will be bored out of their minds. Or I'll tell a very important Bible story that I want the kids to carry in their minds and hearts and they could care less. Why? Because I didn't make it interesting enough. I didn't make it fun enough. I didn't make it interactive enough.
Kids love to have fun. Kids need to use their energy and kids want to be a part. Whether it is a song, nursery rhyme, poem, or Bible story, kids need to be involved. When we use a hands on approach, the kids will remember what they participated in. They won't remember everything you said while they were made to just sit there and stare at you.
In this new series, I will share my ideas and experiences and provide links to my most useful resources. Hope you follow along!
