Character development in the Bible: Creative activities for your children's ministry

The Bible is full of characters who display various traits and qualities, both good and bad. These characters can serve as examples and inspiration for children as they learn and grow in character. As children's workers, it is important to help children understand and appreciate the positive character traits that God desires in His followers, such as love, kindness, honesty, and obedience.

By exploring the stories of biblical characters, children can learn how to develop these qualities in their own lives and how to avoid negative traits such as pride, greed, and anger.

Additionally, children can be encouraged to model their lives after Jesus, who is the ultimate example of a person of good character. By focusing on character development, children can become more like Jesus and live a life that is pleasing to God.

On this page you will find creative ideas, resources and activities relating to character development which you can use in your Bible lessons, kidmin, kid’s ministry, elementary school or homeschooling.
