If you have older children and you’re not so much of a storyteller this is a perfect John the Baptist worksheet. It tells the same story as the teachers notes but gets the children to look up the scripture passages to fill in the blanks. It’s then followed by three discussion questions and a little maze.
If you wish you can use this worksheet as a group instead of telling the story, or you could use it as a leaders sheet.
