Nothing is better than having some down time with your children in the summer. Here are some ideas to make your summer a time of spiritual growth for everyone:
If your children must stay with a sitter (or if YOU are the sitter!) , you can use Christian materials to fill the day with Bible teaching and fun! The Family Resource Center at Faith Baptist Church has LOT’S of clever Christian games, activities and Bible Studies for children.
Call 539-3434 and leave a message that you want some Bible Fun Activities for your children. Leave your phone number! We’ll call you back!
All Faith Family Resource Center materials are based in VBS themes and include clever plays, games, snacks, stories and crafts tied to Bible verses. We also have teen ideas. All are great activities to fill a summer day.
If you want to create your own Bible Study, how about discussing a Proverb a day? In one month, you can complete the Book of Proverbs.
Read a Proverb a day and discuss it with your child. It’s believed God used Solomon to write most of this book to teach people discipline and how to live a good life-great lessons for kids!
Make a chart of the Proverb Chapters and let the kids mark or sticker them off as you discuss them.
Make charts which list the qualities of a wise man verses a fool according to the Book of Proverbs. For example, Humility vs. Pride, Honesty vs. Dishonesty, Hard Work vs. Laziness
Draw pictures to illustrate the verses, or put on a play! You are only limited by your imagination!
Here are some great books available in the Faith Family Resource Center to help you have fun with your kids this summer:
Let’s Hide the Word and Let’s Make a Memory -- books about making Bible teachings a special part of your child’s life. Secret Keeper Girl -- Tips on helping your preteen daughter prepare for adolescence God’s Way. Keeping the Family Together…When The World is Falling Apart -- Resources on raising a solid family.
