Happy Fall to everyone! We have been using and enjoying the online dating reply no questions from http://quietinthechaos.com/what-are-the-bases-in-dating/. If you are involved in work with young children, you are going to want to check out these great little evangelism tools for kids!
These have been so much fun for my children; they’re ages 7, 5, 3 and 1. Obviously the baby hasn’t been using them much, but the older three have.
The Gospel Tracts and Evangelism Tools Sampler Pack includes 10 tracts for children to learn about Jesus and His love for them:
- John 3:16 Animated Tract
- Gospel Buttons Flip About
- The Most Amazing House Pop-up Tract
- Wordless Bracelet Kit
- The True Story of Christmas Animated Tract
- The Lost Easter Egg Pop-up Tract
- John 3:16 Flip About
- Silicone Salvation Bracelet
- Where’s Everybody Going? Animated Tract
- Wordless Book
Each of these items have continued discussions about salvation with my own children; I can only imagine how far a full set of one or two items could reach in a Sunday school class, sports team, etc. These are also perfect as Halloween bag goodies!
The pack comes with colorful, detailed instructions for each of the items, as well as a summary of how to use them. (The website also helps with what to say, how to use/present each tract, etc.)
The animated tracts are by far one of the favorites in our home; by sliding the black plastic sheet over the images in the book, the images move “like a movie,” as my daughter said. My children have spent countless hours using these animated tracts.
The flip abouts are definitely made for busy little hands and inquisitive minds! These are perfect for those that enjoy puzzles. My 7 year old find them fun and really enjoyed showing me how it is “so easy” to use, after I told her it was frustrating for me. I think of the flip abouts like a Gospel-speaking fidget toy!
Each of the tracts and flip abouts are the perfect size for little hands, children’s pockets, to use as bookmarks, and easy to carry in their favorite bag. I would also say they are durable and well made. They have survived a few weeks of constant use by 3 children on a farm- that says something!
The pop-up tracts are again, well made. The pages are thick enough to be durable, but the entire book is small enough to go anywhere in a tiny human’s hand. My 3 year old is especially entranced by the pop up images, and let me tell you, they are actually really neat little books! The images are detailed, informative, and simple enough for children to grasp the meaning of the message. I was impressed with the quality of the pop-ups themselves.
The wordless bracelet kit was lots of fun and so simple to make; perfect as an end of semester gift for a craft class at co-op. We made the bracelet together, and discussed the meaning of all the colors. This might be my favorite item from the sample pack. It will fit most wrists from age 3+ because of the adjustable sliding knot assembly (which is very easy!).
The colors on the bracelet’s beads can also be found on the silicone bracelet, and in the wordless book- again, another favorite by the 3 year old. Each of the colors in the wordless book pages represents the following:
- Gold/yellow reminds us of heaven.
God wants us all to be with him in heaven.
- The dark color/page reminds us of sin.
Because we have all sinned, we cannot get to heaven on our own.
- Red reminds us of the blood of Jesus.
Jesus came to earth to take the punishment for our sins by dying on the cross.
- The clean/white page reminds us that we can be made clean from sin by believing in Jesus.
- When we believe in Jesus, we can have a relationship with God and will one day be with him in heaven.
- Green reminds us of things that grow.
It is important that we grow in our relationship with Jesus.
This is a very simple explanation of the Gospel to plant the seed of knowing Jesus in the hear of children. My son was really interested in the bracelet and the colors of each of the beads.
The sampler pack has items that are just right for a large age range- from preschoolers to tweens. Another thought goes beyond children, to perhaps nursing and retirement homes, community centers, etc. I feel like everyone enjoys getting a little special from children, and these are a great way for children to give the Gospel to others, in a way that they can understand the work they are doing for the Lord.
The uses for any of the tools is really endless- I am thinking stocking stuffers, Christmas goodie-bag exchange, thank you’s for children working hard in a play/presentation at church, graduation goodies from a program, VBS awards, co-op classes, etc.
The online dating reply no questions has truly been a delight in our home. (And now, per the request of my 7 and 5 year olds, we have to spend a day researching & learning how exactly the animated tracts work …)
