This one thing will help take your storytelling to a whole new level

When telling a story to children, you can really make the story come alive if you use a backdrop.  A visual reminder of where the story takes place helps children get a better picture of the story.

Backdrops do not have to be elaborate or complicated.  This backdrop was made using some cloth and some paint.  The animals and manger are made with cardboard, paint and a few items for texture and dimension.  The total cost was less than $20.

Our stories in our curriculum come in units of 4-5 weeks.  Each unit has a theme, so a backdrop can be created for the theme, and used for 4-5 weeks before changing it to a new one.
