Lovely site - thank you so much for sharing.
One idea for Sunday school that has stayed with me - when my children were young the pastor put black oil on his hand to symbolize sin, washed with water and wiped away - would not come off - then he had some red paint mixed with thinners, to symbolize the cleansing blood of Jesus, and this wiped off the black oil easily - I do not know exactly how he did this - but I am sure with a bit of experimenting . . . it was very effective.

Originally Manchester, UK. Now living in Florida, USA
I was on the internet looking for games to play for my mid week children's class at our church, when I came across your website. I just wanted to send an encouraging word to your church from over the ocean. I know each time I come back to the UK to visit my family, I see a decline in the culture that is very disturbing. I came to the USA twelve years ago and now live in a rural community. I became a Christian about nine years ago and attend a contempory Baptist church here in Florida. I just wanted to say keep up the good work, England needs God more than it ever did, even though most people I still talk to don't seem to know that. Well done for being faithful, keep teaching those children.

just an idea. tell children how satan prowls about like a lion, seeking whom he may devour. show a short clip of how a lion hunts, i.e. picking off stragglers (those apart from the church), or going after sick and injured.

I've been teaching my 3-5 grade girls about how to use their Bible and I found your website somehow, and I used the Sword Drills portion. I've done sword drills in the past and they love them but this spiced it up a little bit. I also used the word search for the New Testament Books of the Bible. You've got some great ideas! Thanks!
