Raising Rock Stars ~ Thanksgiving

 

We took a week off and did an evening of Thanksgiving ;-) to help the boys prepare for the week ahead! Krash was a bit sick so it was a simple, short family night. Here’s Daddy reading the book, Let’s Celebrate God’s Blessings on Thanksgiving

Pac Man and I worked all week coloring this project to surprise Krash during family time! I got the pieces and idea from www.edHelper.com, which is a paid subscription site. I was a member a few years ago and let the membership go, but now that Pac Man is older I rejoined, it’s worth the $20 to me.

I laminated all of the pieces and used a glue gun to hook things so we can use this over and over again at Thanksgiving. I am not very crafty, so this really impressed my husband when I pulled this out!IMG_6193

We also shared our special Thanksgiving Bible verse with the boys from Songs for Saplings. They recognized it from listening to the cd all the time, but had no idea it was the verse specifically for Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving Psalm 100

Raising Rock Stars ~ Abraham & Sarah

 

 

Bible Story… Abraham & Sarah

Daddy read the Bible story from our Read-n-See DVD BibleIMG_5177 copy

 

I couldn’t find anything online I really liked so I made our own printables for this lesson. They were very simple, reinforcing the simple facts of this story…IMG_5180 copy

 

Love Krash coloring so intently here…IMG_5182 copy

Raising Rock Stars ~ Tower of Babel


Bible Story…Tower of Babel

Daddy began by reading the kiddos the story from a printed copy, since we didn’t have a story book about the Tower of Babel. The best part was when Daddy demonstrated different languages, as you can see…

Of course we had to build towers as we reenacted the story!

We also looked at an image of a painting showing what the tower is thought to look like…

I helped the boys put together this Tower of Babel craft

I made the boys this tower craft. They each had a stack of bricks (printed on cardstock), and created their own tower. Then we talked about the type of character qualities God DOES want us to possess and glued words representing those qualities on our bricks. We discussed how the people in the story were building a tower for THEMSELVES and we were building our towers for GOD! You can download the PDFs for the whole activity here on the webpage.

We colored our coloring page and mini book about the story…

Not pictured is a cute little song I found called “B-A-B-E-L” that the boys enjoyed singing with me!

Raising Rock Stars ~ Noah’s Ark


Bible Story…Noah’s Ark

Daddy began by reading the kiddos Noah’s Crew Came 2 by 2, which they all love!

Then it was time for a little Noah’s Ark play time! We are blessed to have 2 toy arks. One is Melissa and Doug, the other is hand made!

I also set out ALL of our Noah’s Ark books and Krash enjoyed looking through a few of them…
Then it was coloring time…
We always love coloring together, this has become a regular part of our Bible time each week!

After coloring time we watched the Noah’s Ark story on our Read-n-See DVD Bible, and also enjoyed singing Arky Arky together! (also on the DVD)

Throughout the week we re-visited Krash’s Noah’s Ark Tot Book, but I forgot to take any pics of him with it!

**I will not be posting our weekly verse here anymore, as we are a bit off on my posts, due to the Halloween posts I did. I will leave the link below so you can always find the most recent printables which go up each Monday on Totally Tots!

Raising Rock Stars ~ The Pumpkin Patch Parable


Bible Focus…The Pumpkin Patch Parable

We had fun talking about Halloween again, and what it means for our family as Christians. I made the boys a coloring book based on the book, The Pumpkin Patch Parable, to help illustrate the meaning of the story for them.

First, Daddy read them the book (Ladybug was napping)…
Then we headed to the table where I told them the story again using the coloring pages I created for them. We all colored them together as we talked all about the meaning. Even my Dad joined us!

I also had Pac Man make a Memory Cross to illustrate the story, he did a great job!
It was a fun night, and we are all looking forward to bringing the lesson we learned to life when we select and carve our REAL pumpkins this week!

Weekly Bible Verse…
Songs for Saplings ~ Ee
