Teaching My Toddler about Daniel and Lions’ Den


My family has been researching and learning about our Jewish roots as Christians for several years now.  As a family with young children we’ve had to decide what we want for our children and how we should impart our faith into them.  It has been a learning curve and I don’t have it all figured out by any means.  We’ve tried things and changed things along the way and we will continue to do so.

But as of lately we have decided to spend Shabbat (or Sabbath) resting and just spending time enjoying our family.  We usually take some time to read a Bible story to the kids and do a craft or activity with them to extend their learning.  This gives them an opportunity to talk about and retell the story that they listened to.  This is in addition to our bible study group we meet with to have an adult lesson, a children’s lesson for the kiddos, and some time for praise and worship.  Since sometimes the lesson is bit over Judah’s head we decided to do something with him at home too.  We also take some time during the day to pray for each other.

Last week Judah and I read the story of Daniel and the Lions’ Den.  Then, we made some sugar cookies and decorated them to look like little lions.  Even Eliana got to get in on the action {playing with the flour and tasting the dough :) }.

Judah requested that we take the cookies to church to share with the other kids which I though was really generous of him.  We had a lot of fun.  So much fun, in fact, that Judah has requested that we make and decorate cookies this week.  LOL.  We’ll see if we can make that happen.

I think they turned out kind of cute for an amateur.  And, they certainly tasted great!  What do you think?  Do you have other ideas for things to do as we teach our littles the classic Bible stories?  I’m all ears!!
