Don't just preach at the kids and bore them.  I don't ever read in the Bible where Jesus bored the multitudes, He preached to them and made it interesting for them.  The scriptures tell us that Jesus often preached using parables, cute little stories that explained an important lesson that he was trying to get across.  When we teach the kids using puppets, skits and stories, we are using the same methods of preaching Jesus used.  Puppets, skits and stories are "modern day parables" that make it interesting and more understanding for the kids.

Mark 4:33  "And with many such parables spake he the word unto them, as they were able to hear it."
