When you want to tell childrenabout Jesus Christ and some of the miraculous things He did, what better way than to use some of the stories contained in these 3 kits? Kit #1tells about His baptismby John, and the Temptation. Kit #2 contains the stories of Jesus calling His apostles.Kit #3 tells about the marriage at Cana and the woman at the well.
When I tell the stories, I prepare the figures by laminatingthem, cutting them out, and putting hook velcro on the backs, and after telling the stories, I let them play with the figures and tell the stories back to me using my Storyboard. They learn and remember best through play, and they enjoy retelling the stories.

There’s one Christmastradition I like a lot, and that’s storytelling. When my kids were young, we always told the Nativity story on Christmas Eve, because that’s the reason we have a Christmas celebration in the first place. There are a lot of other great Christmas Stories, and here are three kits for telling them. In a kit, you get a story, some visual aids to help tell the story, activitiesto go with the story, as well as instructions and suggestions.
In a Ward I used to live in, we had a wonderful Primary Activity Day, and I shared the particulars in this kit. We wanted the children to understand what a testimony is and how to share it, so we asked the children to come in their Sunday best clothes. The children learned about things they could express thanks for, and contributed leaves to a Testimony Tree, shown on the cover. We started in the Primary room with instruction, then we had the children sit in the chapel, where each child had an opportunity to stand at the pulpit, and they could bear their testimonies if they wanted to. If they didn’t want to say anything, they could just stand there. They were told how to share their feelings and what to do if they needed help.
This week I have 2 FREEdownloads for teaching children about missionaries. One is based on the 6 discussions that the missionaries used to use to teach investigators. It has all kinds of games, activities, and handouts about missionary work. It can be used for Family Home Evening, sharing time, in classes, and for general use.
