New Resources for Hide ‘n’ Seek Kids and Deep Down Detectives! 

Resource 1: Simple Story Scenes

I’ve just created a new, easier, visual aid resource for story-telling. If you like the pictures used for the storyboard, but want to skip the cutting out, sticking and placing, check out the new Simple Story Scenes resources. The Story Scenes for each story starts out with two of the three Detective Dan questions. Each story is then presented in a number of colorful scenes. The corresponding story text (sometimes slightly shorter than original story because of space constraints) is printed along the bottom of each scene. The story wraps up with Detective Dan questions solved, then a Gospel tie-in, and an ACTS prayer. And, because I’ve included the take-home sheets for each Bible Truth (in the back of the book), this one resource can provide a simple, no-lesson-plan, complete curriculum, if you want. Simply go to Bits and Pieces to add in any extra games, crafts (or lesson plan) if you want.

You can use the Story Scenes straight from the book, like a storybook, or you can cut them out, laminate them, and put them up on a flannelgraph board as you go. Best of all (at least we are excited about this), we’ve put in Bits and Pieces a special “screen view” version that you can show on a screen and skip the printing or the purchasing a hard copy completely. These resources will also be in the Parents’ Corner section of Hide ‘n’ Seek Kids and Deep Down Detectives so that parents and kids can re-read the stories at home.

You can get Simple Story Scenes just on their own, or along with the other Visual Aids, like the other Visual Aids Resources already available. We have added a two-sided overview of key concepts for each Bible Truth, and the

Resource 2: QR Code sheets for the music

You can print out a sheet that has a separate QR code for each song used in a unit. This will hopefully make it easier for teachers and parents to quickly access whatever songs they want without needing to download them or use the website playlist. The original track numbers are included next to each song so that they correlate to the track numbers in the curriculum.

All of these resources will be found in the Curriculum Downloads as well as in Bits and Pieces sections.

What’s available now:

  • Hide ‘n’ Seek Kids, coming in a few weeks.
  • Deep Down Detectives Units 1,2,3 are up.
  • QR code sheets for both curriculum are up.
