I’m excited to be participating in Dusty’s blog series, The ABCs of Bible Study for Children! When I signed up for the letter K, I immediately knew I wanted to do a post about King Solomon. I always loved stories about King Solomon as a child and I really enjoyed putting this post together!
There are so many things you can teach your kids about King Solomon. Bible for Children, Inc. has a great illustrated booklet of King Solomon’s life, Wise King Solomon. This overview tells about who he was and how he became so wise and tells the famous story of the baby, the two mothers and the sword. It also features the temple and tells how Solomon did not always obey God. This is a great little booklet for kids of all ages and it can be viewed online or printed for personal use.
Calvary Curriculum has several lesson plans about Solomon. Each lesson plan includes the story, scripture, coloring pages, worksheets, and crossword puzzles.
For a more thorough study for older elementary students, check out the lesson plan, Solomon Builds the Temple, from Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa Children’s Ministry.
The book of Proverbs is typically attributed to Solomon. He wrote over 3,000 proverbs in his lifetime and there are approximately 900 proverbs included in the Bible. Family Life has some suggestions for Proverbs to teach your children and to memorize as a family.
