Who's Teaching the Babies?®Revolutionary resources created to establish and affirm a child’s unique identity and purpose.
Did you know?
An infant’s brain begins to form just three weeks after conception. During this time, trillions of neurons are produced, reaching a lifetime high before birth. Connections between cells in the brain are rapidly developed, with memory beginning at only four months in utero.
Did you know?
A baby’s brain has twice as many neuron connections as an adult and will grow to half the size of an adult’s brain by six months old. These most crucial developmental stages prove scientifically to be the foundational launching point for a human being’s entire life.
Did you know?
Not only are personality and intellect shaped during the foundational stages of life, but also habitual thought patterns, identity, emotional health, and the ability to trust. The more trusted relationships in an infant or toddler’s life, the more rapidly trust is established.
WHY BEGIN SO YOUNG?The first three foundational years of life are proven to be the most critical time to establish trust, identity, personality, and the development of the mind. Who’s Teaching the Babies?® was birthed with the heart to see each child firmly established in these areas as well as to lay a firm foundation of Biblical truth, the anointing of the Holy Spirit, a personal experience with God’s love, and the knowledge that identity is found only in Christ.
IMPACTING BABIES FROM THE START!We have recognized the life-empowering results of teaching babies in the most crucial and foundational window of opportunity—conception through three years. The experiences, interactions, social connections, and words received during this once-in-a-lifetime developmental stage build the framework for a child’s future.
COLORFUL FLASH CARDS
Each card features real-life imagery with statements that speak directly to your child’s value, identity, character, and destiny. Flash cards can be printed, laminated, framed, or viewed on a digital device!
How does it work in a classroom?
Unlike most children’s curriculum that follows a week-by-week lesson plan, all of our resources are designed in such a way that any tool can be used at any time and in countless ways. To jump start your own creativity, we are constantly adding new ideas on how to minister identity and destiny in fun and interactive ways HERE.
How does it work at home?
In the midst of busy every day lives, how do we care for our children’s physical needs and their spiritual needs? We’ve put together some simple, practical ways to take what you are already doing and super charge it by making it a part of your household culture and lifestyle to speak life & truth into your precious treasures. CLICK HERE.
Colors of Life
Colors Flash Cards are a great tool for teaching colors while speaking truth into a child’s life at the same time! Cards can be printed and laminated for hands-on use or viewed on a digital device.
It’s Time to Celebrate!
Explain that just as we like to celebrate our friends on their birthdays, God loves to celebrate us for who he created us to be. He likes to rejoice over us for the unique purposes we each have. As they cover their hats with colors, shapes, and sparkles, explain how God covers them with celebration and promises too.
Seeds of Life
For this activity you will need the Identity Statements Flash Cards, plastic sandwich zipper bags, damp paper towels, bean seeds (like lima beans or green beans), and an already sprouted seed or plant (or even a picture of one).
Shine Your Light
Through this exercise the children will learn the character and identity that God has knitted inside each of them—who they truly are—just waiting to be illuminated by His Spirit through them as they trust and believe in Him.
This game will not only remind the children of God’s promises and the identity that He has given them through a fun game, but it will also help to build their abilities to listen for a direction and quickly obey, with positive memories and truths about themselves and God associated with that exercise.
I Am Powerful in God
This exercise will give the children an opportunity to learn how to serve and be helpful to those in need, as well as learn who it is that God says they are, no matter their age or current ability!
You Can Do It!
Through this exercise, the children will not only discover more about their God through all that He has made—including our numbers—but they will also learn their numbers and how to “draw” them, creatively!
Inside of Me
Through this exercise the children will learn about their colors, as well as the Biblical meaning and symbolism of the colors. In addition, they will learn more about their Identity of who God has made them to be, and who He will help them to grow into by His love for them.
Find the Truth
Through this activity the children will learn not only the Truth about them and their God, and associate that with positive memories, but also they will learn to go and find out the Truth of who they are and Who their God is!
Made to Bless
Using the Kingdom Character Flash Cards, and a variety of props such as blocks, dolls, modeling clay, crayons and paper, etc., tell the children that our friends need our help!
Doers of the Word
Using the set of Wall Scriptures, and a special mat, platform, or step to represent a stage, have the children one by one come up and stand “on stage” to act out one of the Scriptures from the Wall Scriptures set, to demonstrate to the other children.
Wonderfully Made to do Wonderful Works
In this exercise the children will not only learn what each of the parts of their body were designed to do, but also that they are a part of a community of people who have the privilege of using their bodies in this way!
All Good Things Come From Him!
This exercise will reinforce to the children who their Father God is, how He hears their prayers, how all good things come from Him, and how He delights in meeting all their needs.
Seek & Find
My God Is
Using a cape (could also use a small blanket, sweatshirt, or cloth tied around their shoulders or tucked into the back of their shirt collar), a flashlight, and the Kingdom Destiny Flash Cards, give each child the opportunity to be a superhero to help the other children in need.
Kings & Priests
Using the Father’s Blessing Prayer Card, a paper or toy crown (which you can have the children make ahead of time for fun), and some stickers, speak the Father’s Blessing Prayer over each child one by one.
Who Am I?
Using the Identity Matching Cards, hand each card out to each of the children. Then, have them each take a turn discovering who they are by having them step up to the front of the room and announce what is on their card to everyone (repeating after you). For example, “I am Full of Faith,” “I am full of Joy!” Then have everyone in the room cheer after their announcement!
Leap of Faith
Using the Trust Flash Cards, set up an area of the room either using a soft mat, pillows, bean bag chair, or something similar. Have the children one at at time leap onto the area while everyone applauds and celebrates their leap. Then read one of the Trust Flash Cards aloud and have that child repeat after you.
Using the God’s Creation Flash Cards and several colors of modeling clay, have your little ones make their own creations based on each of the animals listed in the flash cards. As you select a card for your little ones to make their creations, read aloud the life-giving truth associated with that card and have them repeat after you.
Show and Tell
Using the Identity Matching cards, speak each identity statement over the child or group of children, have them repeat it, and then ask the question, “What does a ____ do?” For example, using the Identity Statement, “I am a leader” or “I am a giver,” after the child repeats the identity statement, ask them, “What does a leader do?” or “What does a giver do?”
Kingdom Character Compliments
The words we speak and the words we allow to attach to or “label” our identities are powerful in affecting how we live our lives. The only words that should characterize our identities in Christ are words of Kingdom qualities and truth.

In our children’s ministry, it’s not uncommon to find ourselves praying for a sports injury or a brother or sister who’s home sick with a tummy ache. We teach our kids that God heals and they believe it because they’ve seen or experienced healing in their own lives and families.
Every good parent or caregiver wants to raise their children to be honest, mature, and caring. This post will help you to teach your children the power of building trust and empower them to be the most trustworthy, powerful, and responsible choice makers that they can be.
