Pre-School Bible Class Song Activity - Felt Bible

The best Bible class I have taken Tahlia to when she was little was based almost entirely on songs and activities to go with the songs. It had a theme or story for each month and a box of items to go with each song. Children need repetition, and repeating the songs all month helped them learn the song and enjoy it.

This felt Bible has been hanging around the children's room at a church I recently visited for at least 20 years. No-one, not even the older ladies, could tell me where they came from - but they would be easy enough to make yourself. I think they may have been a kit purchase for people to cut out and put together themselves. If you know the company that produced them, please share your info!

They appear to be printed using the sublimation method to me, although the ink has rubbed off onto the other pages so perhaps not. But sublimation printing would definitely work if you did not want to paint/draw/sew a whole bunch by hand. Check out my post on affordable sublimation printing - Sublimation Printing on Felt - Test.

Alternatively you could use iron-on transfer paper and use images of your child's family. Putting Jesus there with all the other family members demonstrates to a child that He is an important member of their family.

This item was handed out to accompany the song Read your Bible, Pray Every Day. I'm sure you could adapt it to many other songs too, such as With Jesus in the Family, Happy Happy Home.

Children's Bible Songs has printable lyrics and guitar chords for Read Your Bible, Pray Every Day.

If you have any other song activities or picture ideas to include in this Bible I'd love to hear from you!
