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:

Prayer

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"

This concept was carried out as part of the Besj League Zone Zurich. It is suitable for children and young people aged 9-16 years. It is intended to serve as a support for devotional preparation.

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.

On the English-language website http://www.freebibleimages.org/ you can find images from various Bible stories.

I wanted to tackle the meaning of the cross with our church youth group, aged 12+, who are predominently not church-going children.

Below is an outline for a talk which worked really well for us as the framework for an evening around a campfire - taking the group through from an easy introduction to symbols and logos through to a biblical presentation of the meaning of the cross.

We finished the evening with a challenge to the children; to make them think more carefully about the cross and what it means to them. You may want to change this to better suit the type of group you have, and where they are on their spiritual journeys.

Even the smallest thing which we consider unimportant can make a huge difference in the world.

Everybody loves to get a present, a beautiful bike, colouringpencils, a doll, etc. God gave us the most beautiful gift... ...His only Son, Jesus Christ.
