What is Grapevine Studies?

Grapevine Studies Logo

Most kids love to draw. And how do kids start out drawing? With stick figures. So, Grapevine Studies takes kids through the Bible using stick figures.

Grapevine Studies offers levels of study appropriate for preschoolers through adults, including a multi-level option for combining kids of different ages and abilities. You can choose from Old Testament or New Testament surveys as well as some well known characters and books of the Bible. The books are available in paper or PDF ebook formats.

You read the listed portion of scripture to your kids, draw the stick figure based picture on a whiteboard where they can copy it, and then discuss what you read. There are review timelines to help your kids get a sense of the progress of the story and verses to memorize. Some of the levels include maps and Bible resource questions.

Our Thoughts on Grapevine Studies

I love how this approach is interactive for the child. Jonathan loves drawing the stick figures. Take a look at the Grapevine Studies that we have done:

How to Use Grapevine Studies

Jonathan-Esther-Grapevine-1

With preschool and elementary kids, Grapevine Studies are best done as a family. As kids get older, the Level 3 and Level 4 studies could be done independently. You can break the lessons over a couple of sessions each week. Jonathan often likes to sit longer so we would frequently do a full lesson at a time, a couple times a week. Here are some additional tips and ideas:

  • Use crayons, colored pencils or markers to draw the stick figure pictures.
  • Do copywork with the memory verses.
  • Use a tablet or a computer to show the teacher’s guide rather the drawing the pictures on a whiteboard.
  • Take turns reading the scripture portions.
