Bible App for Kids (Android / iOS / Kindle) – Laid out like a game with different ‘levels’ it goes through the Bible story by story encouraging kids to listen and then answer questions with games/activities throughout. Really good to show them the chronology of the Bible and how stories they’ve learnt about in isolation are actually part of one big story. Would require little to no help depending on ages.
God for Kids: Family Bible App (Android / iOS / Kindle) – This one is more of a game/adventure. Good for ages 5-8, again with little to no help needed. Children select an avatar and then work their way through different adventures (1- Who is God? 2- Who is Jesus? 3- Who is the Holy Spirit?) Does include some in-app purchases to be aware of.
Echo prayer app (Android / iOS) – Best for older children/family use. Good way to keep track of prayers and different people to pray for. Would be especially good in this time to pray for church family members by name and individually. You enter in the prayers, and then press the ‘pray now’ button. You can set prayer times to ensure that a certain number of the entered prayers are set or so you pray for a certain amount of time. Might also be good to enter in prayers which correspond to the P.R.A.Y. style of praying the older ones learnt about.
Sharefaith Kids – These videos tell Bible stories in a really clear way with great illustrations. They’re
more for older children, but I highly recommend them for especially to go over the whole Easter story.
LifeKids – More for younger children. They do Bible Adventures which are set up like a tv show with
hosts etc where they explore a Bible story together.
Crossroads Kids – Bible stories in easy to watch short videos. Generally, they cover a story/theme with a short application and recap at the end. The channel also includes other videos with songs. These are the videos we’ll be primarily using in the homeschooling books.
Saddleback Kids – Another channel which does animated Bible stories. These videos tend to focus on the story alone with no application.
Beginners Bible – Uses the same illustrations as found in the most popular Beginners Bible and animates them. Also includes some songs. The animation is slightly more dated than the other two but still good!
Awesome Cutlery – These are the songs we’re using in the homeschool books. They have good lyric videos and their songs are free and available on YouTube, Spotify, etc.
Rend Co. Kids – Rend Collective have a small album of kid’s music. These aren’t just ‘fun’ songs but include some more ‘worship-like’ songs but in language accessible for children. Again, available on YouTube, Spotify, etc.
Bear Hug Band – Same as above. A few of these songs are being introduced to SuperZone and Junior Church when we’re back – especially the Armor of God one! These guys use a lot of funny voices and they’re really memorable. My sister still loves them and she’s 20.
10ofThose – 10 of Those is a Christian publisher which we support. Every night they are having authors read bedtime stories for children on their Facebook page. They are also running weekly competitions which is a great way for kids to engage with other kids across the country!
