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.

First Vision Sharing Time Kit: FREE Download!

There is a basic story that members of the LDS Church need to understand and believe before they can become part of the true church. That is the story of the First Vision.

The first vision happened when a simple farm boy decided to take the scriptures literally, and ask God which was the true church. It was in the springtime many years ago that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ appeared to the boy Joseph Smith and started him on the journey that opened the last dispensation of time.

FREE Downloads: Stories of Jesus Kits!

When you want to tell children about 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 #1 tells about His baptism by 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 laminating them, 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.

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.
