This Bible is actually really fun. It’s filled with art project, experiments, journal entries, discussion questions, etc. that kids can do to help them remember the Scripture stories that they read. I imagine this would be especially good for kids who are mainly tactile learners. A couple of the activities are ones that Asante could do at this point, but most of them are for older children- probably for kids aged 5-10.
The Bible also has a web element where one can go to find family devotions, reading plans, songs, etc. You can check it out here:
Some of the activities are a little cheesy (um, of course, it’s for kids AND it’s probably targeted at a wide range of kids/parents). BUT, one that I liked was talking about the idea of hospitality, and then encouraged the kids to make lunch (with a little recipe for a pita sandwich) and then invite 3 of their friends over to serve them. It’s things like this that would help connect a story to an action that they would hopefully think of again in the future.
