Bible Lego Challenge


Recently on the radio I heard about a website that depicted many stories from the Bible with Lego.  To my disappointment, the character of the site is such that it is not suitable to link or advertise here.  Created by a self-confessed Atheist, the depictions do not create a positive view of Bible stories and the site itself admits that its photos are 'not for the Sunday School set'.

It would be a shame, though, if this were the only reason the concept of using Lego to teach and illustrate Bible lessons was not highlighted.  Hence the challenge - to create and use Lego in such a way to promote God's word rather than denigrate it.  Here are a few suggestions on how to use it in your Bible classes.

  • Many Bible scenes can be created using Lego or Duplo with little alteration or recreation (the site alluded to above said that the only changes were with a knife and a felt pen but usually not even this is necessary!).
  • Set up Lego or Duplo as a readiness activity and encourage children to create Bible scenes in preparation for lesson time.
  • Use it in the place of story felts and allow children to move characters around as you tell the story.  You may like to check out the site Education Patterns.  This site suggests the use of Fisher Price characters and the like but the lessons could be adapted to use Lego/Duplo.
  • For older children, use a digital camera and take a series of photos to illustrate a Bible Story.  Present the photos as a slide show or PowerPoint presentation for story time during a church service.

Ideas for Using Lego

I would also be most interested in publishing more ideas or pictures of Lego Bible Story projects.  If you would like to be a part of this project please contact me.
