I used to worry. Ok, who am I kidding? I always worry. But I worried I wasn’t teaching the scriptures well enough. I worried that my little 5 year old was comprehending the scripture stories and following the meaning along with it.
When my aunt contacted me about this new project she’d been working on I was thrilled. What kid doesn’t love to make puppets on the wall? Why not combine this fascination with the scripture stories so we can get the kids entertained as well as engaged? Like I said… cue the hallelujah chorus, Scripture Shadows will change how you read the scriptures as a family.
This Scripture Shadow full nativity set is a MUST have for any family that celebrates Christmas, because I’m pretty sure everyone (at some point during the month of December) reads Luke 2 when Jesus Christ is born. Intro Scripture Shadows. They are well made and high quality. There is a full set (shown here) and a mini set (shown here).
The first time we got these sets out my little girl didn’t know what to make of them. As soon as we started reading the stories and letting her “play” (aka hold a puppet and see the shadow on the wall), she was hooked. Since then, she has asked every night if we could do the Scripture Shadows. Fingers crossed they make every scripture story ever.
If you’ve been following any of my Instagram stories, you’ve seen the full nativity story and set in action. It’s pretty fun. The best light to project is actually your phone – BOOM. I like to use a phone tripod or prop my phone against a book or something – so my hands are free to participate in the scripture fun.
Like I said, if reading Luke 2 is one of your Christmas traditions, I’d highly recommend purchasing a Scripture Shadow to enhance it. I know my family has loved using these and I can say that my 5 year old daughter’s comprehension and understanding of these stories has grown immensely.
