You now have at your fingertips 52 fun, easy-to-use Bible skits. Use them to spice up a lesson, fill an extra few minutes at the end of class, or as a weekly lesson launcher—for an entire year!
These skits don’t require costumes, rehearsals, or elaborate props. If you’ve got a room full of kids and an open area to use as a stage, you have everything necessary to pull off a skit on short notice.
But maybe you’re new to using drama in your children’s ministry. You’re wondering how to guarantee that each skit will be kid pleasing…memorable…and will make for solid Bible learning.
Here’s some practical advice for getting the most from each and every skit.
Keep the first thing first.
What exactly is the “first thing”? Hint: It’s not the quality of your performance.
There’s no Oscar awarded in the category of “Best Children’s Ministry Skit.” You and your kids are under no pressure to put on a flawless production.
So relax, and focus instead on getting every child involved in each skit. While the quality of the production isn’t critical, the quality of the learning is, and involved children learn more and retain what they learn longer.
Use the debriefing questions provided at the end of each skit, and you’ll engage children even more completely. You’ll cement the learning even firmer in kids’ minds and hearts.
Play the role of Narrator yourself. The Narrator is an important role. The Narrator has the most difficult lines, directs the action, sets the pace, and acts as a prompter. If you’re acting as the Narrator, you’ll be able to manage the flow of the skit.
Make it safe for children to be in the skits..
