When we embarked on our homeschooling journey we wanted to be sure to include kids bible lessons within our homeschool curriculum, because having a relationship with Jesus is the most important relationship to have. Through prayer, bible study, and our church, we're doing what we can to grow our children's relationship with Jesus.
But sometimes between our homeschool schedule and running a business, from running errands, to making dinner, and getting the kids to all the places they need to be, the importance of faith can be forgotten. Thankfully, Buddy Box helps us share the bond with Jesus our kids deserve through hands on experiences, fun games, puzzles, and more, and gets our kids excited about faith experiences.
Best of all, Buddy Box is delivered right to our doorstep—bursting with faith-filled surprises that will help our kids see that God’s love is relevant, real, and lots of fun! Teaching our kids about faith and Jesus is easy with the help of each month’s buddy.

Kids Bible Lessons with Buddy Box
When our kids received their first Buddy Box their excitement couldn't be contained. We're blessed to have children who love their faith as much as our do.
We receive the Pat the Bat box packed full of fun activities to help kids learn they can turn to God when they are afraid. Inside we found chattering teeth and the ‘Yikes' mini poster, string and talky tape, clay, Pat the Bat treat bags, spray away writers, a higher flyer, a pillow case, 2 keepsake Buddy cards with digital videos, and a digital music download card.
In addition to these items, we also received Pat the Bat sticky notes, fear not stickers, reflector bracelets, coloring sheets, spooky slime, and a hint for the next Buddy Box.
Of course the rubber chicken was a big hit with our kids, and they instantly fell in love with the higher flyer, chattering teeth, and spooky slime.
We decided to first learn more about Pat the Bat by watching him and some of his bat buddies in action. By using the Family Buddy Box app and the Buddy Card in the box, we were able to watch a video featuring Pat the Bat and his friends.
Next, since this Buddy Box is all about letting our fright take flight, we used the chattering teeth to play a fun game where we shared our fears and reminded each other that when we're afraid, God is with us.
Since bat buddies use echolocation to find their way in the dark, we learned more about listening to echos. By using a metal spoon and the string included with the Buddy Box, we were able hear the echo from spoon gently rapping a table.
To explore sound even more, we taped the Buddy Box exclusive Talking Tape to the inside of a paper cup to hear a message that reminds up how much Jesus loves us.
Do you remember the story of Mark 6:45-52 from the Bible? This is the first an only account of a man able to walk on water. Yes, I'm talking about Jesus.
We tried an experiment with clay and water and learned why it is impossible for man to walk on water. That, according to science, no man should be able to walk on water. Unless that man is Jesus!
With the tools and activities we received in the Buddy Box, we also learned how to choose to ‘Share, Don't Scare!' with fun treat bags featuring a merry-not-scary message, how bats can feast on a mob of mosquitoes in one night (and how to make a healthy snack that looks just like Pat the Bat), and how to let our fears take flight with praying and giving all our fears to God.
At the end of the afternoon, we relaxed with the fun Pat the Bat themed coloring pages and continued to talk about all the amazing things we learned.
