What Was Included?
The set included ten different items used to share the Gospel with children. There were:
- Three animated tracts (John 3:16, Where’s Everybody Going? and The True Story of Christmas)
- Two FlipAbouts (Gospel Buttons and John 3:16)
- Two Pop-up Tracts (The Most Amazing House and The Lost Easter Egg)
- A silicone salvation bracelet
- A wordless bead bracelet kit
- And a wordless book
Each item is designed to share the truth of Jesus Christ and the salvation He alone provides. As we investigated each item as a family, there were plenty of opportunities for discussion about spiritual matters.
There are great discussion guides accompanying the products. These offer verses to look up and read together, and clear plan of salvation.
You may not be familiar with some of the items, so here’s a bit more detail for the more obscure ones.
What’s an Animated Tract?
If you look at the cover of this tract, the picture isn’t very clear. That’s because it’s an animated tract.
You must use the included plastic piece to view it properly. Once you set it on top of the tract, you can see the children.
As you slide the plastic viewer from side to side, the children appear to move. Each page of the animated tracts have images that come to life with the viewer.
What’s a FlipAbout?
The FlipAbouts are interesting! Each has four different pictures to display, depending on which way you fold them. My younger kids had a hard time making them work, but my elementary school kids made them work easily.
They had fun practicing flipping and talking about each picture.
What’s a Pop-Up Tract?
The pop-up tracts feature several pages, each with a pop-up element.
How Did We Use These?
For now, we just examined each item and figured out what everything was. We talked as we explored.
And my seven-year-old put together the bead bracelet. That was her favorite! My eight-year-old enjoyed the FlipAbouts, and my younger kids thought the moving animated tracts were really neat!
As we looked at each item, we talked about possible ways to use these. Here’s what we brainstormed:
- Send one to a pen pal
- Include one in Christmas stockings/as a small gift
- Tuck it inside a plastic Easter egg
- Give a friend who has questions about salvation
- Pass out in Sunday School
There are plenty of possibilities with these items.
What Did I Think?
I loved the variety in this set! There really was something for everyone, and something that would appeal to each learning style. The plan of salvation is presented simply, for children to understand.
I enjoyed watching my children try out each tract. The discussion that followed was priceless.
I also love that each item is available from the vendor in a larger group. So if you found a favorite, you can purchase a set of ten or twenty of the same item. This way you have plenty to distribute.
