FREE! 2 Christmas Story Kits for You!

I really like what we used to call “flannelboard stories.” Except now you can use magnets, tape, or velcro board (Storyboard) to tell them, and they don’t peel off and fall on the floor. Flannel never really worked very well. Usually you use visual aids to tell a story or illustrate a concept, and since most people are visual learners, they’re pretty effective.

Pretty soon I’ll be putting up a new, improved, and exciting (well, I’m excited at least) website with FREE 2018 theme series book downloads, plus instructions to make your own Storyboard! For this week, I have two story kits that you can use for Christmas. The stories are the Nativity and the Selfish Giant, written by Oscar Wilde. Mr Wilde was a contradiction, living a less than exemplary life, but writing beautiful stories with symbols of Jesus Christ in them.

FREE Story Kit Downloads!

‘Tis the season for stories! I have three downloads for you of great stories. The first two are fromĀ  Oscar Wilde: The Happy Prince is a favorite of mine, and I have trouble not crying when I tell it, even though I’ve told it over and over, to groups from kids to adults in a care home. It’s about sacrifice and love.

Three FREE Christmas Story Kits!

There’s one Christmas tradition 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, activities to go with the story, as well as instructions and suggestions.
