Growing up I watched my parents introduce us again and again to the scriptures and their stories. For the most part I think they did a great job but sometimes we, the kids, were just down right bored and didn’t want to internalize the important messages that the stories taught. Talk about a tough crowd.
Over the last few years I have poured myself into researching the different learning styles that children resonate best with. I believe that the best way to teach is the best way that each individual learns. Every child is different but there are some patterns when it comes to effectively teaching them.
In my home, hands on learning, aka kinesthetic learning, is huge. We like to wiggle, kick, jump, fiddle and climb. Pretty much all day long. Yes, this even includes when we are trying to be reverent. I am working on it but its not as easy as it sounds.
Bible Origami is going to be perfect for our family! The kids (and I) will have the perfect resource to help us keep our fingers busy while listening to the scriptures. The origami featured compliments many of the classic bible stories. While learning about the faith of Daniel you can assemble your own lion. Build your own tablets during lessons regarding the Ten Commandments.
