Our family has had so much fun, and we have learned so much, by acting out Bible stories together! A child's natural love for action and drama provides a wonderful opportunity for teaching spiritual truths.
Simple dramatizing can help children pay better attention to Bible reading, and can help them remember and understand stories better. Through stories, a child can see God's unchanging character, as well as the consistent consequences of man's decisions throughout history.
And--drama gives an energetic body something to do!
This book is a collection of ideas to inspire some simple story-acting in your family.
Easy costumes (including an almost-instant tunic and cape)
Fun meals to go along with some stories
Scripture references and suggestions for dramatizing over 40 different stories.

This short book gives reasons and ideas to dramatize Bible stories with your children. It gives simple ideas for costumes and props. These costume ideas and props are amazing! Easy and simple to do! I like that the book also gives ideas for different stories to dramatize. The ideas in this book are simple enough to come up with on your own, but having it all together in one place makes it nice and easy to have as a resource. Use a drama in family devotions to liven up the routine!
