If you read through the Bible as a family a great way of engaging your kids beyond just listening to the story is having them draw. Your kids can draw whatever they want let them get creative.
An example of how this could work is you could be reading from Galatians 22 about the fruits of the Spirit. Your kids could draw fruit to symbolize this or maybe they want to draw people acting out what these qualities look like.
You can put all the drawings together into a booklet and so your kids can have their own person picture Bible. How special to have such a personalized Bible!
Make sure your kids write the Bible references at the top of each drawings so you remember what each drawing is suppose to represent.
