You can very easily show children how salvation works with a large clear jar, or other clear glass container, a bottle of food coloring, and chlorine bleach. Start by having a clear glass container about 1/2 full of water, talk about that being them when they are born, they have a clean slate, but the Bible says that ALL have sinned so describe a few different sins and for each one put a drop of food coloring (blue works great) after 5 or 6 sins (drops of coloring) you talk about how now the water isn’t clean anymore, and how are we going to get it clean again, then you talk to them about the plan of salvation, tell them about asking Jesus into their hearts and then to show what happens pour about 1cup of bleach (strait) into the water, in a few minutes the water will turn clear and you can also add more coloring to the water with bleach in it and it will be clear, because Jesus died for all of our sins, talk about confession and telling others and you have gone through the whole plan. Tip for an added effect, right after you pour the bleach in, pray then when the children open their eyes the water will be clear!
