Bible Time FUN Through the Bible
Kids Bible Lesson 13 - Balaam’s Donkey

Balaam's Donkey

Welcome to week 13!

This week the kids learn about Balaam and his talking donkey. This story is full of fun Bible  lessons. Children will learn that God can get our attention through anything, even a cute talking donkey. They will also learn to stop and listen to God’s direction, God protects his people and that no one can curse what God has already blessed.

Have fun learning this great story!

If you haven’t read the introduction to Bible Time yet, I recommend you read the outline about the Bible lessons for children first.

Bible Story Tips

  • We read “Balaam’s Donkey” beginning on page 25 of the children's Bible Storybook called Bible-Time Stories and Rhymes.

  • During story, draw attention to the key concepts for this lesson.

  • Don't forget to ask questions related to the story, for example, “What did the king want Balaam to do?”

  • The girls learned that God will bless and protect his people.

  • After the Bible story and discussion session, we stand up and do the interactive rhyme found in the Bible storybook

After the story and rhyme, we say a prayer that is related to the Bible story. You can either have your children repeat after you or allow them to come up with their own prayer.

Bible Song about Balaam’s Donkey

  • The Bible song for this week is "Count Your Blessings".
