It can be difficult to start introducing children to faith when you are not used to having these discussions. You may be scared that they will ask questions that you cannot answer? Or that there are parts of the Bible that you would rather not teach them about. Luckily, there are lots of resources out there to help you. I have scoured the internet and made a list of some ideas below. Some will appeal to younger age groups whilst other may suit older children.

Most crafts could be guided towards faith. This is sometimes a particularly useful way to talk to children about faith without them feeling pressured or irritable.
I will leave this to your imagination but really children could dress up as any biblical character or animal etc!!
I hope you find these ideas helpful.
Have fun teaching your children about Jesus!
