Resources for Teaching Children about Christ- media

There are many resources available on LDS.org to help parents, teachers, grandparents and anyone else who loves children and wants to teach them about Jesus Christ. I wish these resources had been available when our children were young.

Go to the blue main menu on LDS.org (across the top of the page)
Click on Families and Individuals
Click on Children

On this page you will find links to:
Scripture Stories  https://www.lds.org/children/scripture-stories?lang=eng

Here you will find videos of scripture stories. The language is simple and easy to understand It was written for an 8 year old's reading level.


There are Audio programs where a host and a group of children discuss the scriptures and Gospel principles.

Coloring pages are now available. At present you can print out pages to go along with your Book of Mormon and Pearl of Great Price study. There are activities to do, questions to think about, and scriptures to read. The Pearl of Great Price coloring pages include activities to help understand and learn the Articles of Faith.

Videos
There are several groups of videos available.
Children's Bible Videos - children explain basic Gospel principles
