Easy for teachers…
fun for kids!
Teach as Jesus taught.


The Bible comes alive when you teach
as Jesus taught!

Just as Jesus used everyday objects to teach eternal truths, Hands-On Bible Curriculum uses fun gizmos that help Sunday school leaders teach so kids understand God’s Word, love it and remember it for a lifetime.

Kids get it, love it, & remember it.

Kids can’t wait to get their hands on colorful, fun gizmos. All of Hands-On Bible Curriculum’s gizmos are designed to connect kids with each lesson and naturally lead them to experience God’s word in unforgettable ways.

Volunteers teach as Jesus taught.

The Bible comes to life for kids as volunteers use timesaving, step-by-step instructions for each interactive lesson. Leaders feel confident and know they are making a difference as kids stay attentive and engaged with every lesson.

Kids connect with God’s Word.

Kids will discover God’s truth in unforgettable ways, retaining up to 90 percent of what they’re taught! Kids come back week after week because every class is fun, playful, and packed with active learning.

Customer Testimonial

“I love when we do an activity and the kids say something about how it connects to the topic we have been studying. It makes me realize that they are looking for and making connections that they will take into their own circumstances.”

The Hands-On Bible Curriculum Difference
