One way to help children learn Old Testament stories with “Come, Follow Me” is to create something related to the story or principle they are learning. 

The Church’s Gospel for Kids YouTube channel includes “Come Create With Me” videos designed for just that — teaching children how to build or draw something from “Come, Follow Me.”
