A great idea when teaching your kids is to tell a story using food. It is said that when learning, using as many of the five senses is very important, so why not add taste when teaching the Bible! Jesus himself used food as a teaching tool by using it to celebrate the last supper with his disciples (Luke 22: 7-23).
If you are thinking of teaching your kids about John the Baptist try making grasshopper legs as part of the lesson!
“John’s clothes were made of camel’s hair, and he had a leather belt around his waist. His food was locusts and wild honey.” Matthew 3:4
Check out the recipe:
