Toddler Activity - Show 'N Tell Bibles!
Items Needed: How to Do Activity:
Children's Bibles (that they each bring in).

Prep: Tell children's parents the week before that they will be talking about their bibles the next few weeks and ask them to have the child bring in their own bibles each week. (If they do not have one, check to see if the church will purchase some children's bibles for the children). Activity: Ask the children if anyone wants to stand up and show the rest of the class their Bible. Ask them what they like about it, and to tell the class who reads it to them, and what their favorite story is. Keep repeating the key concepts of the "My Bible" Series, and reminding the children to always thank God for their Bibles.

Extra children's Bibles.
Tips: If their is extra time, read the child's favorite story to the class, or let the child tell it in his own words. If you don't have time to let all the children do their Show 'N Tell, have the others do it the following week.
