Kid's Christmas Shop?

Dear Friends in Faith,

We want to establish a "kid's shop" to run in conjunction with our Christmas bazaar. Does anyone have any advise and experience to share? We are looking for a catchy name for the room. Did others purchase items or ask church folks to donate items for the kids to purchase? We expect the kids will shop for parents, grandparents, siblings, etc. Gift wrapping help will be included. We have gone that far but are excited to hear what others have to share!

2) Action Songs?

Thanks friends for the ideas on Action song with dress up. We had the “Butterfly song” for last Sunday school day. That was really nice. Looking for similar stuff this time also.



3) Armor of God?

I take the Grades 5/6 in our Sunday School - they are all 9 - 11 years old. I want to do a series on the Armor of God. Could you please let me have some good ideas for activities and connected work for the lessons.

Thank you

--from SSTN: Hi Sandra,

4) Two Year Olds? 

I teach a two year old class every first Sunday of the month. I could use some ideas on activities I can do with them. 
Thanks, Kali in NJ

--from SSTN: this is such a sweet age. Two year old children can learn a lot about the love of Jesus through songs, play time, crafts, short Bible verses and REPETITION. For some examples of this, check out Sunbeam For Jesus, Jesus' Light, Jesus Loves Me "heart" and Finger Print Trees. You can find them listed in the Any Time Bible Crafts & Food Devotions section at:



5) Teaching Materials for India

Thank you so much for all the information. Please help me to know how to get books, including materials for Sunday School children in Delhi, India.

6) Curriculum in South Africa

Thank you very much for your support especially for a new teacher like myself. Kindly for details where I can purchase or place an order the curriculum around South Africa. I found it quite interesting reading the article of Spirit Gift. 


--from SSTN: Thank you for your interest. Our curriculum is available only online; we ship around the world. We also provide many items that can be quickly downloaded from the site, such as our "e-books" and "Make n' Take Downloads."

"Spirit Gifts," and our other resources, are listed at:
