An adopt-a-pet experience where kids get to choose a new (stuffed animal) pet, then commit to taking care of it by reading Scripture to it for the next 8 weeks!

(2 customer reviews)


Children will love this adopt-a-pet experience with stuffed animals and scripture! This event begins with a large group lesson focused on how God chose us (Ephesians 1:11 & John 15:16, NIV) before the kids break out into small groups and choose their stuffed animal pets. In small groups, kids rotate between stations where they design homes for their animals, create birth certificates, and be challenged to read the scripture with their pets over the following 8 weeks! This 75-minute event gets kids excited about reading their Bibles!

    I just purchased this to do for our church’s Wednesday night outreach program. We are going to start this in January 2021 to kick off the new year. We are praying that this will encourage the kids but also use it as a way to reach the parents as well. We are excited to do this!!

    We just did this event, social-distance, walk-through style outside our church. We had a great response with over 100+ kids coming. We did the lesson online during our Sunday morning virtual kid’s lesson to promote the event. Great idea!!! We got a lot of positive feedback.
