Devotional techniques

A great way to act out Bible stories or other stories in a devotional is with Playmobil.

In this article I give you some tips and ideas.

A raven-vertüferli made from a clothespin.

Fitting for example to the story of Elijah and the ravens or to the main message: God cares for you.

Or to the Bible verse 1 Peter 5:7

The Vertüferli is used as a magnetic note holder.

A Vertüferli to a devotion with the possible topics:


Psalm 50:50 or Psalm 4:4

"God hears you"

"You can always talk to God"

A great little bag for devotions on a wide variety of topics.

You can also attach a hidden message that appears when you open the clothespin.

A little booklet to go with your devotional, for example, on the topics of "Salvation" or "Jesus Saves"

From salt dough you can make great tablets of the law. First, they look very real and second, Moses can break them in his anger. (Unfortunately, ours were broken before a photo was taken...)

Later, Moses had to write down the laws himself. You might as well make some as vertüferli with the Jungschärlern.


Why do we tell?

It is important to us to awaken and develop the children's ability to experience.

Story telling technique and why we are telling stories?

A sheet of paper is cut through with a straight cut, resulting in several sections which can be used for a devotion.
