YouTube video - Abram and a pregnant Hagar - The Wishgranter

With the help of a secular YouTube video and creative activities you can encourage the children to think about the Bible story you are talking about. 

This film is about a man who lives underneath a wishing fountain. He uses a computer to grant the wishes of the people who throw coins into the fountain. One day, things go wrong and two coins get stuck. The man has to do his utmost to grant the wishes after all.
