Daniel and the Lions Den Story

To tell the Daniel and the Lions Den Story, we like to use The Jesus Storybook Bible, from Amazon, as it relates each story back to our redemption in an age-appropriate way. It’s also got beautiful, bright pictures to go along with each story.

To make the story really come alive, it’s fun to act it out! You could get the kids to play various characters and act out the story while you read it. This works well for a confident, lively group of kids. Alternatively, once you have made the craft that goes with this lesson, you could use the characters to act out the story like a little show for the kids to watch.

Before I tell my kids a story from the bible, I like to read up on it myself, so that I’m prepared for any questions! I mean, let’s face it, the kid’s bibles don’t usually include quite as much detail as the bible does. You can find the story of ‘Daniel in the Lions Den’ here in Chapter 6 of the book of Daniel.

Memory Verse

“In God I trust, I will not be afraid.” Psalm 56:11

Although this one isn’t actually from the story of Daniel and the Lion’s Den, I feel it’s a very relevant one for this story. I have included this memory verse in the coloring sheet printable that you can grab further down via the pink download button at the bottom of the page!
