Bible Basics

Welcome to Bible Basics!  I hope you will find some fun, simple, and engaging toddler Bible lessons here that will be useful to you and your family.

Three-year-old Abby and I are on a learning journey through the Old Testament and we'd like to invite you to join us.  We'll be learning about Creation, The Fall, The Flood, and more!  Plus, we will take a break from our Old Testament adventures to learn about Christmas and Easter.

In this ongoing, weekly series I hope to provide you with some simple and engaging Bible lessons for toddlers.  These are designed for children ages 18 months to 4 years, but can easily be adapted for children older or younger.

To learn a little more about the series, look at the introductory post.  And don't forget to check in each Tuesday as we add new lessons.
