Looking for ideas for teaching the Bible to your kids? These four tools will help you lay a strong foundation in your son’s life.
One priority in our home is teaching the Bible to our kids. I know my kids will be exposed to various beliefs and thoughts as they continue to grow up, so we want to be teaching them truth from an early age. I love how as our kids get older, we are able to start having deeper discussions with them about God, the Bible, what we believe and what others believe.
Many times, I can over complicate things. Have you ever felt like teaching the Bible to your kids seems overwhelming? Trust me, I have been there. Instead of overthinking it, I want us to keep it simple and remember the basics.
There are countless ideas for teaching the Bible to your kids, these are just some basics to get you started.
Ideas for Teaching the Bible to Your Kids
Get them their own Bible.
Ever since my kids were little, they have each had their own Bible. As they grow, they get newer ones that are age appropriate. My six year old son has the Action Bible and also has Bibleforce which is the first Heros Bible. It immediately captures their attention with the comic style writing and images. This has been a great Bible for my boys before they dive into a regular text Bible. We love reading through the different stories before bed with the boys. Pssst.. make sure to head over to Instagram because we are giving away one copy of Bibleforce!
Use a guided journal.
Recently, Cultivate What Matters released this adorable Write the Word journal for kids aged 5-12. This journal is so well made and a great tool to help your boys connect with God. I love that there are coloring pages, stickers, Bible book bingo and more.

Download the Bible app for kids
If you have not used the Youversion Bible App for Kids yet, you need to check it out. This is a favorite for all of my kids. You can click on different Bible stories and then there are questions and a game at the end. It is a great way to be interactive with the Bible and use technology. This game is also great to have on hand for when you may be stuck in a waiting room.
Use a notebook for a journal.
Each of our kids has at least one journal, which is a basic notebook. I have always loved journaling and my husband started to love it a few years ago. After my oldest observed my husband using his Bible and journal, he asked for a journal as well. He loves to write his favorite verses in it and draw in it. Our other two kids have now started to do the same thing. It is such a precious sight to see our kids wanting to store God’s Word in their hearts.
