[TKTB Newsletter] Using Animated Bible Stories

Greetings Parents!

If your children are anything like mine, they love to watch movies and videos. I’m sure your kids have a favorite video that they like to watch over and over too.

Since our children are already passionate about watching cartoon movies, it seems only logical that animated movies would be an awesome way to teach our children about the Lord.

I was able to test this theory last night with my two older boys. They are 6 and 4.

I put in Nest Family Learning’s “He Is Risen” Interactive DVD. I was thoroughly impressed with this movie. It was Biblically accurate, the graphics and music were awesome, and it kept the boys attention the entire time.

After we watched the video, we did the “Adventure Quiz” that comes on the DVD. It was a 10 question on screen quiz that asked questions about the story. I’m proud to say the boys received a perfect score as they remembered all the important details of the movie after the first viewing.

When the quiz was complete, it was time for dinner. My oldest son said to me “I thought you had a puzzle book to go with this movie.” I told him I did and maybe we could do a couple puzzles after dinner. Well, time got away from us and we didn’t get to do the puzzles last night. But when he came home from school today, he asked about those puzzles again. He said he hopes there’s a word search in there.  (There is!)

I highly recommend you check out the Nest Family Learning product line. You can learn more about the resources they provide by listening to the latest episode of the Teach Kids the Bible Podcast where I interview Hillary Morris from Nest. Click here to listen now.

Until Next Time,
Be Blessed!
