Every Bed of Roses: Upcycled Nativity Thanks to Pinterest I discovered this wonderful up-cycled activity which was first showcased on Catholic Icing in December 2009. It's a printable DIY Nativity for Kids. One word of caution this is not an hour long activity, it took us six hours to colour and glue onto the toilet rolls on Wednesday. In future I will definitely plan to do this over a few weeks rather than one day as Sir N found it a lot of colouring in. We printed the pages and coloured in. Glitter Glue I really wanted to use the glitter that's been sitting in the cupboard but did not want glitter everywhere. I used a water based PVA glue.Add a generous amount of glitter in a container. This in turn has inspired Sir N to design his own take of the nativity using toilet rolls. Elsewhere on the www What are some Nativity projects have you done this season ?

Lucacept - intercepting the Web | A teacher learning about the web and sharing it with others Keeping Christ in Christmas – DIY Names of God Tree! I diligently pursue to keep Christ in Christmas each year a midst the craziness that seems to take over our lives this time of year. The story of Christmas is magnificent to me. Just to ponder a little tiny baby, yet so mighty and powerful to bring us eternal life for all who believe in Him. It still is astounding to me. And I want my children to marvel in this miracle, too. And to think the myriad thoughts that must have been going through Mary’s mind. Two years ago, we made a small Christmas tree with the names of God on it. We printed the names of God on a white piece of paper and cut them out with decorative scissors. Next, we gathered the several different fabric swatches and cut them out into strips about 4 in. long and tied them on the ends of tree. Of course, we had to add some “bling,” so we just threw some tinsel on it. Simple and festive, yet still representing the true meaning of Christmas. I really got into the Names of God thing last year as gifts. Jill

Snowman Playdough - Easy Holiday Gifts Inspiration strikes at the funniest times. I was at the dollar store picking up helium balloons for my son’s birthday party when I saw these little containers. Immediately I knew what I wanted to do with them. I even had the perfect ribbon at home. Gather your materials. Start by making the playdough. ( <– affiliate link to amazon if you want to buy it ) but when I need this much in one color I will make it. Next fill your containers. Draw the mouth and eyes on with the black marker ( make sure it’s permanent ) . Add the nose with orange. Pop the top on and add some double stick tape on the side. Cut the ribbon at a length about one and a half times around the container. Tie it on. I would have been done all 12 in five minutes if I didn’t add a scarf so if time is short skip it. After I was done with the scarves my daughter was still playing. Here are a few books about snowmen to go along with this activity. Snowmen at Night themed book in the same series much more this year than last!}

Memorizing The Beatitudes For our current Bible Study, we are reading Matthew. I wanted the girls to memorize a whole passage, verses 3 – 12 … Because this passage is quite long, and has matching values and results, I designed a slide strip page, where the child inserts the 2 strips and slides them to match. Front page with 2 slits for the sliding strips I have used different colours to help visualize and memorize the matching verses. My children sketched a tiny image for each phrase to also help them memorize the verses. Strips with matching colours for each verse For greater mastery, when the child knows the verses well, she can leave one strip out and memorize the missing part of each verse. For fun, I made a Matching Beatitudes Card Game. Here 2 or more people can play “memory” with the Beatitudes cards. Memory Matching Beatitudes Card Game I have included a master list for this game.

Encouraging Your Children to take Sermon Notes and FREE Printable! - Blessed Beyond A Doubt I am not going to debate the issue today. We have had our children bored to tears in worship with us and on the extreme they have went to a completely different service and played games during the hour. Each family needs to decide what’s best for their individual family. I created this Children Sermon Notes printable for my children to complete during the our weekly lesson. I require my homeschooled children to take notes during the sermon for numerous of reasons: Keeps them focusedHolds them accountable during the weekSparks interesting conversations during our Sunday lunchHomeschoolers do not have as many opportunities to learn how to take notes and this is the perfect opportunity to prepare note taking for college I don’t check for neatness or misspelled words. The goal here is for my children to learn to take notes and mostly importantly discern what the Holy Spirit is teaching them each worship service. Please feel free to share with other this children sermon notes printable. Jill
