Tips for teaching Toddlers

Since I didn't write them, I won't just copy and paste all of Abraham Piper's 7 Ideas for Teaching Toddlers God's Word. I will link the article, like I just did, highly recommend you click through and read it, and then give you a sample:

1. Have an open Bible on your lap during story time. This reinforces where the story comes from—God's word.

5. Use repetition to cement biblical concepts in children's hearts and minds.

Now, click here and read the rest!!! (Yes, I know, the original has 2 #3's, and no #7. We all have typos.)

While you're there, check out some other info on Children and Youth Ministry.

One of the things I'm liking about these links is that they are not heavy in specifics that can't be applied anywhere. For example, anyone teaching kids can hold a Bible in their lap, and ought to do so. In fact, anytime anyone teaches in churches, you ought to have your Bible there. "Why do I need my Bible, I've got my Sunday School quarterly?" BECAUSE THE LESSON IS FROM THE BIBLE! The suggestions are practical principles that anyone can utilize, whatever your church format or size.

And the nice folks at the Desiring God blog are willing to give away ideas that are better than many you'll pay for.

  1. Hey Doug,

    Great tips and I found the post, but check your first link - it's got two "http"s in there.

  2. I also signed it twice---apparently I was in a double mood---

    Link should be fixed now.
