After Mary heard the amazing news that she would become the mother of our Lord and Savior, she went to visit her cousin Elizabeth who was going to have John the Baptist. This story is so precious. Every mother loves to feel their baby move around inside of them, but John's jump must have been the greatest leap of all time! This part of Luke One is also where we are given Mary's beautiful song of praise to her God. Take some time to go over this with your children. Maybe encourage them to come up with their own song of praise.
Here are thirteen 5 "W" questions who, what, when, where, why and how - with their answers for the story of "Mary Visits Elizabeth" found in Luke 1: 39-56. You can ask the questions or you could have a nice hand or finger puppet do the asking. Have fun!
