He sees the world as far as how it impacts him. Somewhere around or before or after age 8, kids start to be developmentally ready to see beyond themselves. They can start to think about the principles of the Bible more than they could before. My 5 year old and even my almost 8 year old cannot read a passage of scripture and apply it to their lives, but my 11 can and does. At our house, we study the Bible together. All of my kids and me too!
So yes, we teach at all ages. Now underscoring ALL of this is a need for each child to respond to the gospel and to believe in Christ for salvation. Thank you for the time and effort in creating this post and the printable bible study. A great reminder of how to help our little ones grow up to be men of faith and character. This is valuable resources and wonderfully clear teachings especially to my boys of 6 and 5.

BUT, they are being sloths. For example, leaves cleaning products in the middle of the floor or stuffs items any where so the task looks done.

Have fund estimating the number of grains of sands in a teaspoon, cup, bucket, etc. Once there was a man named Abram who loved God very much and had faith in Him. Sadly, Abram and Sarai could not have children. It must have been sad for them to think about how they would never have grandchildren and great-grandchildren. But this did not stop Abram from having faith in God. God loved Abram and Sarai but God also loved all of the other families in the world.
So God made a plan to bless everyone.

His plan was that he would use Abram and Sarai to begin a family that would become very very big. Their family would be so big that it would be a nation. This nation would help the world. God did not say where the new land was. He just told Abram to go and that He would show him later. Abram had faith in God even though he could not see him.
Some people might say that they have faith in God but be too afraid or disobedient to obey him. That kind of faith is like a dead faith. But Abram had a living faith. He trusted in God and was willing to do what he said. Abram and his wife, Sarai, began packing up everything they owned. Everyone would have been very busy for many days. They would have packed up all their things, loaded the big, heavy objects onto their camels. Finally everything would have been ready! Abram and his relatives left their home country forever. Now they would live in tents and travel around wherever God told them to go.
In the land of Canaan God told Abram to have a good look around. They stopped in a placed called Shechem so that Abram could build an altar of stones and worship God. Later they stopped in a place called Bethel and did the same thing.
Later they would go to other places, like Egypt. Abram was not a perfect man who did the right thing every single time but he continued to have a living faith in God. And God kept his promises to Abram and protected him. God had a special plan for Abram. And remember how Abram and Sarai had no children? God promised that that would change someday.
God wanted Abram to have a family that would bring blessing to everyone. God would start a great nation from Abram. This story can be told using a variety of methods.
