Certain things are synonymous with summer, and one that’s a sure hit with kids is water! Cool, refreshing, and fun—water is the perfect element when the sun scorches on a mid­summer afternoon. And the Bible is brimming with stories that reference water—so it’s a great tool to drench kids’ faith growth!
