Teaching the Bible with Simple Stick Figures!

Adding Stick figures to our daily homeschooling has sparked an interest in our home while engaging in the homeschool product review,  Old Testament Overview – Beginner Student and Teacher ebook.

Grapevine Studies offers a simple, but creative array of both New and Old Testament Bible studies for all ages ranging from Pre-K to adult. The easy, ‘Stick Figuring Through The Bible,’ approach  allows for a multi-sensory learning experience that gives students of all ages methods to grasp and retain God’s Word in their hearts.

The Beginner Book Series is designed for children 5 – 7 years of age, however, my 2 year old was quite the artist and listened to the Bible lesson attentively along with her brothers.

How it worked for our Family

The Old Testament Overview teacher guide is simple to understand and leaves the teacher little to no prep time.

We started each lesson with a prayer and read the scripture passages.  I encouraged my sons to try to find it in their own Bibles and I helped them when needed.  I also introduced the memory verse at that time.

I already had on hand the recommended teaching supplies:

  • Bible
  • Dry erase board
  • Dry Erase markers
  • Colored pencils/crayons – occasionally I will let them use water colors
  • Lessons pages for each student/teacher – Easily printable from pdf 
  • Bible Dictionary – we used a children’s version
After we read the passage, I drew the stick figures as shown in the teacher guide.  While my children were drawing, I discussed in detail the scripture application.

It is encouraged to ask and discuss with the children the review questions that ask who, what, when, where, and why after the lesson to ensure that they have obtained the objectives of the lesson. At this time, I also had my oldest look up key words in a children’s bible dictionary.

We orally discussed the section review before moving on to the next lesson.  Also, there is a final review designed to ensure your child has mastered the objective and goals for each lesson.

The Results After Using Grapevine Studies

My 2 year old told us that God made everything when looking at the stars a few evenings after we completed the Creation lesson.

My 5 year continues to draw stick figures of numerous different bible stories that he knows and teaches his little sister.

  6. Nicole Krob says:

    I think the study of Esther would be a good lesson. As far as my knowledge is Esther is the only book in the Bible that doesn’t refer to God once.

  7. I like the Resurrection study the best

  8. I have been lookimg at this exact one for a few days.

  9. Jen @ Happy Little Homemaker says:

  18. The study of Esther!

  19. All of them… They look like so much fun. I love the story of Esther, we are studying creation (and the free sample looks really cute)..

  20. Tracey M. says:

    I saw several Grapevine studies that I would be interested in using with my daughter. The Old Testament series would complement our Bible and History studies this year. I am also interested in the Birth of Jesus and Resurrection Grapevine studies. I would prefer the series for ages 5-7. Thank you for posting this giveaway.
    God bless,

  21. The fact that it is stick figures….because I CAN’T draw at all!!

  22. I would prefer an overview lesson book, but my daughter would like the Esther one.

  23. Danielle R. says:

    I would love an overview and then from there we can dive into specific books. My kids would love to use this.

    I’d choose Level 3 Jordan River to the Temple.

  25. Any of the Beginner series!

  26. I love the overviews

  27. The old testament overview looks perfect for our school year.

  28. The one that most interests me is the one offered, we have a 1st grader. We are starting with Genesis for history and this will work perfect.
