Teach your kids about the Parable of the Sower with this hands-on lapbook and Parable of the Sower Bible lesson for children.
It’s important, too, for our kids to slow down and really take a look at different stories in the Bible, so they really understand what Scripture is saying about a subject. That’s the reason for our lapbook series here at Thinking Kids.
One of my favorite parables in the Gospels has always been the Parable of the Sower. It’s found in Matthew 13, Mark 4, and Luke 8. Jesus tells the story of a sower who tosses seed as he walks. The seed lands four different places–along the path, on the rock, among the thorns, and into good soil. As you can imagine, the seed in each spot grows with different results. Only the seed that lands on the good soil grows and bears fruit.
The story is a metaphor for salvation, the kingdom of God, and the work we are each called to do–sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ.
The Parable of the Sower
The Bible is such an exciting adventure for our kids. We can make it even more fun with hands-on in-depth Bible lessons like lapbooks, copywork, and Bible memory verse cards!
The Parable of the Sower Bible Lesson Lapbook for children is an in-depth study your kids will never forget.
Take a look at this fun lapbook:

Supplies You’ll Need for Your Parable of the Sower Bible Lesson
You’ll need a few supplies to put together your lapbook. You probably already have most of these. If not, it’s worth investing in them as you will use them again and again with your kids.
- A Colored File Folder
- A Sheet of Cardstock in a Complimentary Color
- Printer Paper
- A Glue Stick
- A Stapler
- A Metal Mini Brad
- Colored Pens to Write With
- Colored Pencils to Color With
How to Print and Use the Parable of the Sower Bible Lesson Lapbook
To create the base of your lapbook, place your file folder on a table and fold both sides inward toward the creased spine of the folder. Once the outer edges meet, crease your file folder. This will give you a book that opens in the middle. You will still have a fold in the middle of your book, so I like to glue a piece of cardstock into the middle section of the book to create a thick center that won’t bend.

You want to teach the Bible…
As parents, we deeply desire the best for our kids. We look for the right schools, we make them eat right and exercise, and we get them involved in extracurricular activities. We take our job as parents seriously.
But are we also putting our time and energy into
teaching them the Bible? Giving them the life-changing, soul-nourishing words of Scripture is not only doable, it’s an essential part of parenting kids for Jesus. And the good news is, studying God’s Word as a family doesn’t have to be difficult!
2 Timothy 2:15, ESV, says:
Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved,
a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.
Our job, as parents who love Jesus, is to help our kids become approved workers, unashamed and rightly handling the word of truth.
The good news? Teaching the Bible isn’t hard. Your family can learn the Bible together.
…and you can!
