She was right. The children were sweet. They could read, but they couldn't hide their boredom. We finished the lesson in about fifteen minutes. How was I to keep them occupied for the next forty-five?
As I prayed over this dilemma, I had one of those light-bulb moments that I like to think of as God thumping me on the head. Hand puppets of animals giving their commentary on Bible scenes, starting with the Christmas story. Before the next Sunday I'd crocheted a puppet for each child. Here are the sheep and donkey.
Do you have any ideas to make Sunday school more interesting for children? Or for adults, for that matter.
These puppets are easy to crochet, and all animals are from the same basic pattern, my own creation. If you'd like the instructions, send me an email at elainehmanders at gmail dot com.
