Children love puzzles, mysteries and codes! We can use that to our advantage as we teach Bible classes. You can watch the video below to see how to present this lesson.
We can teach the Bible account using visuals that don’t tell the whole story all at once. This creates curiosity in the child’s mind. Curiosity results in the child being more absorbed in the lesson being presented. When the child is more engaged in the lesson material, they will remember more. After all, we want them to remember as MUCH of God’s word as they can!
The lesson begins by showing colors and talking about how colors can sometimes remind us of something. For example, white reminds me of snow, red reminds me of a heart, black makes me think of a dark place that might feel scary, etc.
As you tell the story of how Adam and Eve sin, you display solid colored paper. Later those solid color papers will be replaced by letters. The letters are the same color as the paper. They reveal the gospel that God planned from before the Creation.
It would be a good idea to watch the video to see how this lesson plays out since using mere words to describe it is challenging. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FZi2fPyH_vw
