Reading scriptures with kids doesn’t have to be a chore, it can be fun, both for the kids and the parents. Here are some simple things you can do, as a parent, to help your little ones listen (at least for a short time):
- Use an animated voice
- Offer explanations often
- Ask questions they know they answers to, and praise them when they’re right
- Relate the verses to things they understand
- Use different voices for different characters
- Have fun!
For more fun ideas, pre-order my book, Scripture Study Made Awesome, coming out June 2013
