This is a fabulous set of more than 600 beautifully-colored felt figures that can be used for all the major stories of the Bible. Rocks, rivers, urns, trees, and other "accessories" are included. Use this felt/flannelboard approach to help Bible stories come alive for children.
This usually works best if you first read or tell the story using some of the figures yourself. Then have your children use the figures as they retell the story. The beauty of using the felt figures is that all ages can be involved together, and the excellent visual aids bring the stories to life.
You can purchase small sets of figures, figures without boards, and figures with boards, but I am recommending the Small Deluxe Set that features 6 ½" figures and includes three 16" x 24" mounted boards (water and sky, indoor, and purple), a teacher's manual and a filing system. The filing system is extremely helpful for keeping the figures organized and easy to locate. The A large set with 12" figures ($329.95) is also available for those who want to use it with a bigger group of children. With all sets, you will need to cut out the figures yourself, so plan ahead to allow time for cutting.
