Let My Kids Introduce the Cue Box

My kids and I have loved the new Cue Boxes that accompany the Orange 252 Basics Curriculum.  In October, we used the electronic version; but in November we stepped it up to the physical Cue Box.

We’ve had it in the house for a few days, and it’s a big hit.  My boys at age 7 and 8 are the perfect age for the Cue box, and are loving it.  I’ve been trying to think of a creative way to let my parents at the church see what the Cue Box is, and how they can get it.  I thought of doing a video review, or maybe a long 500 word review of what I like and what I don’t like.  Instead I created this…

Thanks to Dan Scott for the video idea.

We have our winners!  // http://www.jonathancliff.com/2010/11/cue-box-winners/

      The Cue box is really great at the conversational stuff…and it’s fantastic at just giving us as parents something to talk about with our kids.

    Your boys are so cute! And I’d love to try this Cue Box thing!

    Count us in, Alyssa would love this..

    Cute video! Obviously, I don’t attend Trinity, but it sounds like the Cue box would be cool to have even without the curriculum at our church.

    • Jonathan Cliff · November 17, 2010

      Everyone is eligible! And the Cue box is great enough, that even if you kids aren’t learning along with us at Trinity…you can still get something great out of using the Cue Box.

    Our church has just started using the basic 252 curriculum. It would be great to see the cue box and encourage our families to try it. I love reading your blog and getting ideas and encouragement from you. Thanks so much for what you are doing.

    Jonathan, it is nice to see the Cue box used in a family. We have been using the 252Basics curriculum at Angus for almost three years now. I still struggle getting the families to use the God Time cards and the Refrigerator Door cards. I am considering purchasing a Cue Box and do a video to help the parents/guardian be more equipped with tools to help their children grow in Christ and know more about Him and Gods Word. I have enjoyed reading your blog. It has been encouraging.

      Thanks so much for leaving a comment. You know Angus Acres Baptist will always be a special place for my family. I got married there many moons ago!

      You should try out the Cue Box. I’d love to hear how it all works at AABC for you guys.

    I would really like to check out Que Box. I hear good things, but not sure how it works totally. Thanks for giving back, Beau

    We would love to be able to see the CUE box and decide how we want to promote them to our families. Wish we could spring for them as a gift to all of our families but with the budget that won’t happen. So, we need to get creative. Seeing one might let me have a better idea of how to promote it. Thanks!

    “Time to get back to the basics!” That is a statement that witnessed with my spirit. We have been searching for material to help us out with the Children’s Ministry. This is great stuff! Pick Us! God Bless! :)

    We are using 252 basics at Dagsboro Church of God. It is a great tool for children’s ministry! I’d love to get a CUE box to pass on to a family in our church.
