Bible Alive: Samson

So, way back when I was a kid my Mom got us a Bible playset that had a Samson doll, Delilah, and maybe had a book.  I primarily remember the Samson and the tape.  The tape told the story of Samson and had a song.


“Samson what’s your secret? Samson, Samson tell me please.  Samson, if you love me, where does your strength lie?”

“Delilah is luring our Samson.  Fulfilling the Philistine plan, to capture, bind, and afflict him, and stop this mighty man.”


So, as you can see the songs you learn as a kid stick with you for a very long time.


But, back to the  lesosn I taught my kids.  As I’ve said before our history this year is Ancient, and it includes Bible stories, and this one was about Samson.  Samson was famous for two things, okay several: long hair, bad taste in women, and very strong.  Let’s face it, it’s the women who caused most of his problems.


Well, we reenacted Samson’s famous death scene, when he literally brought the house down.  LITERALLY.

We didn’t really bring the house down.  Just some giant foam pillows we had fun taking turns knocking down like Samson.


And for kicks afterwards we could have watched the Veggietales “Minnesota Cuke and Samson’s Hairbrush.”  But, I forgot to find it in time, maybe later.


And then we could sing that famous song, “Oh where is my hairbrush?”

You know you already had it stuck in your head……..




Thank you, thank you very much.  Now head on over to Fantastic Five.

  1. LOL…..'oh where is my hairbrush'

    anyways nice nice. I don't know when Tigger will be into the interactive style of learning, but she is really into the reading of these stories if the book has pictures. She can now recognize “Jesus”….kind of cute. I love kids and their enjoyment of Bible stories. Good job T!

  2. Great re-enactment…I give your kiddos 5 stars!

    (And, yes, thank you SO MUCH for sticking the Hairbrush song in my head- although, as songs go, it's not a bad one to have running through my noggin…)

  3. I love that the words of your Samson song are still in your head. I randomly get words from the musicals I sang in at church running through my head. With those strong triggers, it kills me that so many people don't think it matters what their kids listen too. I was talking about this on FB yesterday so I'm copying my post for you… has a thought about children and music. Rachel and I were eating lunch and a song she remembered came on the radio. She knew that this song was on in my car when we would drive to Grace & Joey's house. She's right. I wanted the boys to learn the words while we were driving to our science co-op. She was 3! 2 years later she remembers! If you don't think that the words your little ones hear matter…think again.

    The song…I linked that too on FB. It was Chris Tomlin's You are Amazing God!

    You're doing a great job raising Rock Star kids and I love reading about your fun ideas!
