Bible Visuals

Wow-it has been a busy week.  I've gotten so many things done and I feel so productive.  I really wish every week felt like this, but more often than not, I don't get much done and I feel overwhelmed.  I am sure that by next week, things will be back to "normal" :-). 

I have recently taken over the 2 year old class at my congregation.  I have 5 two year olds and 1 eleven month old.  I was so excited to take this class.  I have so many ideas and plans.  However, last week was not such a good class.  There was an incident during "potty time".  Let's just say that it involved a bloody lip and a toilet seat, but no one had to go to the ER, and the children seem to all have forgotten about it and will hopefully trust me again this week.  I do plan to eliminate potty time from my curriculum.

This week's class lesson is on the fiery furnace and Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego.  This story is from the book of Daniel and has always been one of my favorites.  I thought I'd share with you my very large visual.  I used a big piece of cardboard, some black paint, a sponge and some tissue paper to make this "fiery furnace".  I hope the kids will enjoy pretending to be "thrown in", and I sincerely pray there will be no more bloody lips.

  2. Too cute! I know the kids will LOVE IT! Thanks for putting so much time and effort into all your Bible classes!

  3. That's great! You are so creative!

  4. Thanks, girls. I would like to say this was my own idea, but I attended a class at Freed lectures the one year I went on teaching Bible classes and the lady had a ton of ideas - this was one of them.

  5. I wish I could come to your class!! It is going to be AWESOME! Kids really remember the story when you use visuals. Very nice!!
