Finger-plays are fun little poems to share with children. An example of a finger-play is the “This little piggy went to the market” finger-play parents teach children while pointing to a child’s toes. A favorite finger-play I use at our preschool Bible classes is the “The Bible Treasure” poem. CEF Press included this meaningful poem in their 2002 “Surfin’ God’s Word” VBS kit (another favorite of mine).
Here’s a pdf with “The Bible Treasure” take-home tokens for the children. I laminated these and put a magnet on the back for a small gift for the children.
Otto is a puppet from Marietta, Texas. He is a puppet of Pastor Chas Carlisle of Oak Ridge Baptist Church. He brought Otto with his youth group last year to volunteer at Delacroix Hope Baptist Church Vacation Bible School (we coordinated). They loved us and we loved them. They planned another mission trip to help us this year. The pandemic changed everything, so we went to plan B. Chas, Otto, and sons, Charlie, and Caleb came. We are visiting several sites and bringing Vacation Bible School in a Bag!
Join us each day for a brief overview of the Vacation Bible Fun for Days 1-4 with Otto and Mrs. Debbie. Thank you for joining us! Let us know your comments. Post pictures on our Facebook Page @ Facebook.com/WeeCanKnow. Be sure to subscribe to our website for new updates.

Lately, during this pandemic, a common and sensible question asked is, “Are we end the last days? Just as one needs to prepare for retirement or a rainy day, even of more importance, one must prepare for the coming of the Lord! We created this article on the end-times to help simplify the massive amount of information on the end-time.

During our many years of teaching children, we had sessions on the teachings of the Armor of God. CEFPress produced great material over the years. Phil reflected on each part of the armor and its significance. He wanted to explain the armor in such a way, that we could eliminate the vagueness and abstractness (or incorrect teachings) of the various parts. Here is a great guide to give kids a clearer understanding of the armor of God.
Do you need a good clean laugh? We love these two Christian Comedians …
Note:I Still Believe was filmed in Debbie’s hometown, Mobile, AL. Also, one of the creators, Jon Erwin, was in Phil’s Christian Youth in Action (CYIA) team at CYIA training in Birmingham, AL several years ago!
Pilgrims Progress, an all-time Christian classic, is an allegory of the Christian life from unbelief, to salvation, to struggles, to entrance into heaven. Children and youth (adults too) need guidance to understand the different characters and concepts. We will insert a guide here soon. (If not inserted, send us an email and we will email you one.)
The Lamb is a lovely overview of the Bible is story form for children. We recommend that families view together and limit to 5 minute viewings each day. Ask a couple of questions after each viewing.
