Scripture Charades

If you have young children and you want to read scriptures with them, you know it can be a struggle.  Even the versions made specifically for kids weren't quite cutting it with my kiddos.  The other night I had an epiphany.  I would use my all-state acting* skills.

Doing a one woman show acting out scriptures isn't as easy as I thought.  But...it was a hit!  They love it!  I try to add a new one every night.  It is kind of difficult to come up with some ideas of how to act them out.  Any suggestions for me?  

The kids favorite by far is Noah.  I get out my pretend notebook and check off all the animals that get on the ark.  Then they pretend to be an animal and I check them off the list.  I make it rain and rain and then I tell them about the promise of the rainbow.  

Tonight I broke out the story of Enos (in the Book of Mormon) that prayed all night.  The jury's still out on that one.

It's kind of nice having the kids beg for scripture time now instead of the usual kicking and screaming from before.  Do you all have any good tips on how to study the scriptures with little kids? 

*I totally won a medal in high school for my role in a one act play contest.  I was playing a really popular girl that this boy obsessed over.  It was full of his dream sequences so it was really fun.

  1. Christy, you are one rockin' mama! Seriously, the thought of taking that on makes me want to crawl in bed and hide. Glad your kids love it.

  2. Oh, you've gotta do Ammon cutting off the arms. It's a boy's favorite.

    Also, the Good Samaritan is popular around here.

  3. That's awesome. I remember acting out the Good Samaritan with my Sunbeam class. It was a huge hit, although at the end when I asked what it was about they told me, "someone got beat up in the Bible"

    Boy, do I wish I could have seen that -- both then and now! Great thinking, Christy. Try Moses leading the children of Israel out of Egypt and through the Red Sea. The kids can play the bit parts. As they get older, you can play scripture charades.

    I've been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article

    like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all site

    owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.
