I wanted to SHARE with you all one more "FUN" activity we did with the KIDDOS, while teaching the story of Cain and Abel.
I have noticed that whenever the KIDDOS are having to LEARN multiple names and they happen to be the same gender, it gets kinda confusing.
So, we came up with an idea...
We had the KIDDOS pick a VEGETABLE and a SHEEP. The sheep are puppets (I bought them a few years ago at the Dollar Tree--during the SPRING/EASTER season.) They WORE the SHEEP on one of their hands and held their VEGETABLE in the other hand.
Then as we told the story they would RAISE up the SHEEP if we said, "ABEL" and RAISE up their VEGETABLE when we said, "CAIN." It was a great way to get the KIDDOS actively participating in the story. It also helped with the confusion of: WHO was a farmer? WHO was a shepherd?
This worked out so well and the KIDDOS enjoyed it so much, I thought I would share it with you all.
