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"

Here you can find out how you can use cotton pads and wax to make fire starters with the children

Make a heart-shaped pillow with fur fabric

The pillow fits e.g. to the topics: love (God loves you), friendship (e.g. to the story of David and Jonathan)

Make a heart-shaped card holder out of wire. The card holder fits e.g. love (God loves you), friendship (e.g. story of David and Jonathan) or is suitable as a present for Mother's Day.

practical tips and specials


Location: in the forest

Duration: 1 to 1.5 hours

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.

Make miniature match-powered rockets with just a few household items!
