Bahai Children’s classes are a core activity. We carry four kinds of materials to help you with your Children’s Classes: Curriculum guides, games and activities, small gifts to send home with the children, and special gifts for graduation ceremonies.
For Curriculum guides, there are, of course, the Ruhi books in the Core Activities/Ruhi category, plus additional materials in the Parenting and Virtues categories.
For games and activities, look at Games & Activities in the Children’s Books category, as well as in the Games category.
Martha Root was known for always giving a small gift to everyone she met. I feel this is particularly important with children. They appreciate even a token gift, and it gives them something to tell their parents about. In addition to the items listed here, also consider any of our other stickers, balloons, pens, bookmarks and teaching cards.
At the end of a series of classes, many communities have a “graduation” for the kids and give them something a little more substantial to take home. These might include any of the books in our children’s book section, or a book light, or even a T-shirt.
I hope you find these suggestions helpful. If you have other ideas (or stories) please share them.
