Children's Church Skits
Children's church skits are a sure attention grabber and fun way to drill your main teaching even further into the hearts of your kids. We use a lot of puppet skits, but we don't do skits too often due to our small children's church ministry staff. However, they are truly a rare treat to our kids! We occasionally ask church members for assistance, and many of them are happy to help. I typically write my own skits, but there are some great ones to be found online.
Here is one of my favorite sources of children's church skits and puppet skits.
One summer we did a "Fun in the Son" campaign. One component of our summer campaign was an on-going dialogue with "Doug the Bum." My husband's brother had just moved there, so most of our children's church kids had never seen him before. Each week we would have him dress really worldly and come wandering through the fellowship hall, where we have children's church. Chris would strike up a conversation with him; and he would usually say something along the lines of how boring it was here at church,
he was just coming because his parents forced him, it was more fun partying with his friends, etc. He would tell us that he had been out drinking the night before, or listening to his rock music (so of course he thought church music was a bore), etc. Chris would try to convince him that real fun was in the "Son," and we would have the kids cheer and try to help us prove that church and serving the Lord was a great life. Our goal by the end of the summer was to get "Doug" saved and have him serving God instead of the devil and the world. The kids loved it (and I'm not sure when/if it ever dawned on them that "Doug" was actually a fictional character)!
In my opinion the best children's church skits are the ones you just make up yourself and kind of ad lib. It just doesn't seem as natural when everyone is working from a written out text and flubbing up their lines, sounding mechanical, etc. Just let all of your skit participants know the general direction you want things to go, and pray it turns out well! That's just my philosophy on children's church skits... for what it's worth!
However, if you do prefer a script...
