Bundles of Faith and Tons of Fun: Easy Activities, Prayers, and Projects for Childrenis a resource of crafts, prayers, role-plays, banners, and much more that serve to enhance a child’s walk in faith with Jesus throughout the entire year. These easy-to-use ideas are suitable for pre-school to sixth grade curriculums. Mathson’s lessons and activities require minimal preparation time and use close-at-hand materials that make them adaptable to any religious education setting in school, parish, or home. Prayer chains, pantomimes, giving trees, May Day crownings, and holiday adventures are all part of the creative offerings which are truly tons of fun as they teach children bundles of faith. Through Bundles of Faith and Tons of Fun: Easy Activities, Prayers, and Projects for Children, children will recognise the presence of Jesus in their work, prayer, and sharing.
