Bible is an important part of the day in our homeschool. We like to switch up what we are doing from time to time. We will work on memorization and Bible verses, character training, read family devotions aloud together, and we also like to do short Bible Studies. So today I’m sharing free printable Bible lessons for children that you can use in your own homeschool.
When I first started homeschooling, I purchased a Bible curriculum that we would go through each day, but I was getting frustrated with how much it felt like school. I didn’t want it to be like our other school subjects we needed to cross off the daily to do list. So I began the hunt for short and meaningful Bible studies that I could print out and use in the morning for our Bible time instead.
Children’s Bible Lessons
In my opinion, the goal of the best Bible lessons isn’t just to teach kids about the Bible. It’s to shape the minds and hearts of children. To encourage a love of God. To teach my kids to spend time reflecting upon the word of God each day. Hopefully, I will see the fruit of the spirit in my children’s lives.
These are lessons that are hard to learn in a Sunday School classroom.
