We’ve been enjoying the Faith Builders Bible from Zonderkidz as part of our Bible curriculum which we were given for review as part of the TOS Review Crew. All four of our children LOVE playing and building with LEGO so this Bible is a great way to reinforce God’s Word via building some Bible stories or scenes. Using LEGOs and their imaginations to bring the Bible to life really reinforces the lessons in their minds.
My husband decided to read a part of Genesis which talks in detail about the Garden of Eden. He read about the river that runs through Eden and meets up with the surrounding rivers. After he read the passage, the kids raced into their rooms to collect the needed pieces to complete their very own Garden of Eden.
Eldest, Princess, and Big Red came back with a tray of LEGO pieces that were green, blue, and brown. They found pieces that could make plants and trees as well as some pieces that were golden. They quickly got to work to build as many features of the Garden of Eden that they could with the LEGO pieces that we own.
The passage we read was Genesis 2:4-14 which details some of the topography of the Garden of Eden, specifically, the river that flowed through it and branched out into other lands. The kids spent quite a while building their own Garden of Eden scenes, even working together (gasp) to extend the rivers out to some of the other lands we read about in the passage.
Here are a few of the inside builder idea pages found within the Faith Builders Bible. There are not instructions of how to put scenes together but some very detailed ideas which helps children recreate stories from the Bible. After trying to build a few of the ideas from the book it is very easy for a younger builder to branch out and build more difficult story scenes.
