Build confidence in your children, as they use the simple facial-expression symbols beside each line to put the right feeling into each line. Words that should be spoken with emphasis are printed in caps, to help beat the "monotone syndrome" and ensure that everyone catches key concepts.

You will get:
  • Suggestions for expanding the message of each script with Scripture readings and discussion points.
  • Suggestions for tying in to other topics.

Welcome to the Skit Book for Every Children’s Ministry!

Sure, skits are a great idea. They make learning active and visual. They build relationships as kids and adults learn to work together. They brighten meetings with humor while driving home important points.

But only if your performers can act.

If your children’s ministry is like most—that is, if your children aren’t all movie stars and your volunteers aren’t all Tony award winners—your experience with skits may be nothing to write home about. If your group is "theatrically challenged," you may find yourself avoiding skits or relying entirely on canned, prerecorded puppet shows.

Your dilemma: Should you keep less-skilled kids and helpers off the stage, making them feel left out? Or should you use everybody and limp through some ineffective and embarrassing efforts?

Fortunately, there’s a third choice. It’s Instant Skits for Children’s Ministry!

Real Fun, Real Truths—for Real Children
What do you want in a skit? It’s here—from pratfalls to movie parodies. Want solid, Bible-based messages? They’re here, too—covering important topics like forgiveness, entertainment choices, and being a Christian at school.

But you get even more with Instant Skits for Children’s Ministry. You get help to make each skit work.

Every script in this book has been prepared with real kids and helpers in mind. Instead of long speeches and big words, you’ll find easy-to-read dialogue so kids can play parts too. And to give you maximum flexibility, each skit can be performed by live actors, puppets, or a combination of both...
