Things have been flowing along in church school! The preschool group has been having fun with a lot of hands on lessons in class. In recent weeks we have had a treasure hunt in sand to look for pearls, we have built houses out of cardboard boxes and fabric, and we have even painted with shaving cream. I feel it is so important to teach our children the Bible stories with fun participatory activities and each lesson I carefully plan using the Bible as a basis and letting their own creativity run wild. Many studies have shown that children learn as they play and what better way to learn the lessons of the Bible?
