Ideas for Christian devotions/worship with toddlers?

Share your best ideas for a daily Christian worship/devotional/bible, etc time with a 2 year old! This is something that we definitely believe in, and want to start doing more now than just reading a bible story book for kids whenever DD feels like hearing a story. She is definitely advanced for her age (not bragging or being an overly proud mom, just the truth), so she's capable of picking up on just about everything right away. She's a VERY busy child, and isn't necessarily one to want to sit for long periods of time. So, while we want something that will be appropriate for her age/activity level, we do want her to learn to be disciplined about it as well. Also, we really want something that is going to stick to the accuracy of the bible...for example, I've seen (and we own) several bible story books that are just that - stories, which usually include things that aren't really in the bible. I get that they're trying to make them more kid friendly and appealing, but I just want to make sure we're not adding things that don't really belong. SOOO...any thoughts? Also, if this is something you don't agree with, please don't try to discourage...we know we want to do this, just looking for fresh ideas!

Oooh, I'd love to know this, too! Right now all I really do is say our prayers at dinner and bedtime and sing songs.

Re: Ideas for Christian devotions/worship with toddlers?

We LOVE "The One Year Devotions for Preschoolers" written by Crystal Bowman. It has a devotional, Bible verse, and prayer for everyday. I did get it when my oldest was 3 years old though, not 2. We also have the Beginners Bible they love to flip through and have me ready from.

The kids love to listen to Bible Action Songs Cd (it has favs. like Father Abraham, Lord's Army, Deep and Wide, Whole World in His Hands, etc). I love that they can sing the songs, but don't love the kids' voice on the cd though! haha
