Jesus- The Way The Truth The Life (Fun Resources For Kids)

The story of the Good Shepherd is such a great Bible story to teach children! I always find that when I reach kids on their own level with fun, hands-on activities, it helps them learn the story and retain it longer. You can find all of my Bible crafts for kids here. This Sunday’s Gospel reading is John 14: 1-12 when Jesus says he is “the way, the truth, and the life” so let’s look at some fun ways to learn about this. 

For this time while many of us can’t attend Mass, be sure to check out all of my weekly Mass resources for kids. There are so many great resources in that post including ideas for spiritual communion, sending your angel to Mass for you, and resources that update weekly!

First off, read the story from John 14: 1-12 to your kids from you your bible or a children’s bible if possible. It’s always good to start with a version of the story that they can understand.
