Welcome to the Church Puppet Skits Round-Up! Children’s ministries in churches still regularly use puppets as one of their teaching tools to teach Biblical principles about the Bible to children (and even adults who are helping in those ministries)! Here in this Round-Up you’ll find free skits and scripts as well as those you can buy. Each has a link where you can find the skits online.
If you have puppets in your storage closet from years gone by then think about pulling them out and bringing a new aspect to your Sunday School or Junior Church ministry again. It’s always good to rotate and revive the teaching methods you use to add interest and gain the attention of your students. Keep it fun and lively! Use people who will have time to practice (even if they just read the skit) and those who will have voices to make the characters come alive. Worried about not having a stage? A quick Google search will help you find out how to create your own low-cost puppet stage. Here is a link on how to make a portable puppet stage with PVC. Puppeteering is a method of teaching people who can teach great Bible principles or even memory verses in a fun way.
Please enjoy this resource! Please remember to use these skits according to your preferences and adjust them to how you need to use them for your puppet ministry’s audience. If there is a skit in any of these lists that is not according to your liking just simply move on and find something that you do like and can use! I was not able to screen every single skit for correct doctrine or situational appropriateness so please make sure that you take the time to look into each one for yourself.
