40 much-loved Bible stories literally unfold before kids’ eyes!
Tell A Friend
By Karyn Henley

Your children will watch in awe as Bible stories literally unfold before their very eyes. Each Bible story has a pattern for you to fold and cut as you tell the story.

Discussion questions about the story allow you to get the children involved--by having younger children help tell the story if they know it--or having older children help cut and fold the patterns.

The figures you create are key parts of the story, such as...
  • The snake, the tree, and the fruit from the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3)
  • Moses in the basket (Exodus 1-2:10)
  • Samson and his hair--which you cut off (Judges 16)
  • The lion from Daniel and the lions' den (Daniel 6)
  • A string of wise men (Matthew 2:1-12)
  • Jairus' daughter sitting up in bed (Mark 5:21-43)
  • The fish from when Jesus fed 5,000 people (John 6:1-13)
  • And more stories from both the New and Old Testaments
Patterns are reproducible--to let you practice cutting and telling the story ahead of time--and patterns are easy to follow. The solid lines show you where to cut, while the dotted lines show you where to fold.Make your storytelling come alive... with Snip-And-Tell Bible Stories.

Jesus says, "Every like the owner of a house who brings out of his storeroom new treasures as well as old" (Matthew 13:52, NIV). Snip-and-Tell Bible Stories is designed to help tellers of Bible stories add new treasures to their storehouses of methods. Use these "treasures" to supplement your Sunday school or children’s church materials, during a children’s message time, or even for bedtime stories at home.

Snip-and-Tell Bible Stories will capture your students’ attention with fascinating visual aids you create yourself. Each Bible story is accompanied by a photocopiable pattern for you to fold and cut as you talk. Each figure you create will depict an important element of the Bible story. Your Jonah will be swallowed by a huge fish, your David will fell the giant, and your Zacchaeus will climb down from the tree! Any story you choose will come to life as you snip and tell.

Here are a few tips for using the stories:

* Practice. Become familiar with the story you’ll be telling. Photocopy practice patterns on plain or scratch paper. Practice telling the story as you fold and cut the figure. Unless the instructions tell you otherwise, always follow the dotted lines for folding and the solid lines for cutting.

* Prepare. Remove the story you’ve chosen from the book by tearing along the perforated edges. Copy the patterns for the story onto the sheet of paper you want to use. If you’re using construction paper, transfer the pattern by using carbon paper or by tracing an imprint of the pattern onto your paper. To create an imprint, place your construction paper underneath the pattern and draw firmly over the pattern with a pencil. The imprint will then be visible on your construction paper...
