Things for children and families to do

Here are just a few of the things you can do to help teach your children the Bible is true.

Our Creation for Kids page features activities and articles designed just for children, previously featured in our popular family Creation magazine .

With students at home, you have the responsibility of teaching your children. Have you seen our Parent’s Corner? You will find multiple ideas and resources brought to you by homeschooling experts.
