Elisha is Shown Hospitality — Bible Craft

Crafts are a great way to engage kids in learning. For me, I have a craft cabinet to keep everything for their crafting needs. It doesn’t always look pretty! But it is everything in one spot. I was teaching the kids about Elisha and the Shunamite women the other day, and couldn’t find the specific craft I was looking for, so I made up this simple craft to help remind my kids of this historical event. Hopefully you will be able to get some use out of it too!

Magnet Chore Chart Craft

Hello everyone, I had to share my new victory: chores for kids that they actually enjoy doing. It’s a magnetic chore chart, that they call a “game”, and voluntarily ask for… No, really! I’ve seen this concept on other websites; my biggest inspiration was from a website called A Spotted Pony. I gathered what worked for our family, omitted what didn’t and added my own twist on the subject. I’m a huge proponent of anything that keeps my sanity in tact.

Kids Craft – God’s Promises Box

God is faithful to all His promises (Psalm 145:13). So when God makes one we should stop and listen. Do you look for a rainbow after a rainfall? Sometimes I do. Perhaps it’s the beauty, perhaps the wonder? My four year old listed the colors to me today :) I am not sure I know too many four year olds who actually list indigo in there, but if you knew my Timmy it wouldn’t come as too much of a surprise.

Jesus Calms the Sea Kids Craft

Because most toddler’s attention span is all of a nanosecond, I find the simpler the craft the better. Age and personality type also play a factor when finding applicable crafts for your sweethearts. My children have two very different personalities. Even by age 2, my son could stay on a task for quite a while, whereas my daughter is just like me, “blessed”, with a very small attention span. We both start a hundred things at once and don’t finish them.

Jonah and the Giant Fish — Kid’s Craft

Kids are like sponges, absorbing everything we teach them and observing the priorities we set. As I watch these precious little children mimic my actions, it has made me conscience of who I was as a person and what I strive to be. What are my priorities, and what do I feel is the most important values I want to instill in my children?
