Hello, I need some advise. We are going to be baptizing our 4 month old son soon. How do we explain what baptism is to our 4 year old daughter? Thanks!

Not sure myself telling a 4yrold. Do you have a childrens bible. Maybe you could look up baptism in there. I might be saying baptism washes away original sin. Then explain to them how it came from Adam and Eve. I don't have a real good way to tell them.

I think Carol's ideas are best
