Flatman and Bobbin Zone

Over 20 years ago, Kidology founder Karl Bastian invented Flatman and Bobbin with the classic puppet script about when Flatman and Bobbin get saved. Since then, many others, inspired by this bumbling duo have written their own scripts, posted YouTube videos, and kept the legend of Flatman and Bobbin alive and growing.

The Flatman & Bobbin Zone is dedicated to the bumbling efforts of these intrepid heroes! Feel free to use the scripts you'll find here for your own puppet shows and dramas, and to write and post your own too! Also included are complete lessons that included the scripts.

And Karl would love to see pictures of YOUR Flatman and Bobbin. Just post in the Kidology Facebook Group!

Get the Flat Script Book - a collection of 24 drama/puppet scripts featuring our bumbling duo super zeroes teaching biblical truths!

This collection features the 5 original scripts by Karl, as well as 19 additional scripts contributed by others in kidmin. The 74-page collection features both PDF and Microsoft Word versions to download so you can modify easily for your own use.

Children's Pastors Conference
All Access Acts 1 - The Ultimate Super Hero

This lesson can serve as an Easter lesson as well as an introduction to a unit on the book of Acts. Kids love super heroes because (like adults) kids both wish they were more powerful and that they could have help when in need. Well, Jesus meets both those needs. When we need help – He is there, and He invites us to more than just ordinary people, he calls us to be heroes for him! A hero is someone who puts the needs of others above their own needs, and kids do that every time they witness for God! Jesus proved he was the ultimate super hero because not only could he do amazing things, but he did something no else had ever done or ever will do: He was able to raise Himself from the dead! And if he can raise himself, he most certainly can raise us too!

Jesus - Easter
All Access Acts 2 - Bad Guy, Turned Good

Every kid has people in their life that seem hopelessly lost. Bullies that pick on them, or stuck up girls that look down on them, or mean adults who make life hard. It is easy to write them off as ‘bad people’ but kids need to learn that everyone is loved by God and no one is a ‘lost cause’ or beyond God’s reach. It may surprise them to learn that the Apostle Paul was once an arch enemy of God – he deserved to be ‘zapped’ but God chose instead to forgive Saul and turn his zeal and energy to good, and renamed him Paul. Kids need to pray for and be hopeful for even the meanest and toughest people in their lives, if they can learn to do that, they will be started on the path to being a change agent in the lives of others their whole life!  

Conversion of Paul
All Access Acts 3 - The Encourager

Everyone loves to be encouraged! We all like compliments and pats on the back. Barnabus was given his name because he was known for encouragement. This lesson’s aim is to challenge kids to become encouragers – to be the kind of kids that build others up rather than tear others down. Our human instinct when we are hurt or attacks is to tear the other down, but in this lesson they will learn that when they build others up – everyone succeeds!  

All Access Acts 4 - Godly Gals

This lesson uses the examples of several women in the book Acts to teach that we need to discover what our gifts and abilities are, and then use them for God and His Kingdom!

Mother's Day
All Access Acts 5 - Stand Up Guys

The book of Acts contains amazing stories of faith and courage. It is easy to think of these heroes as being extra special or extra spiritual, but they were ordinary people, just like us! Kids can be challenged to be bold and brave for God in their neighborhoods and schools!
