Paul preached about God the creator at Mars Hill.
This is an older post, but recently I have purchased these globes. I have one blown up and let the students gently toss it to each other and name something God created. They get to take one home, but are not allowed to blow theirs up until they leave the building.

Thoughts and prayers for these families in Newtown, CT.
This is from Facebook, but I am not sure of the original writer.

There is a Birth of Jesus cook to print with several choices! Also, printable cards that can be used for review and/or retelling cards. Along with a door hanger that can be used as a box to store them. There's a lot in this post, but one thing led to another, and before I knew it, this is what I used to work together as a whole package!

I was given this song when I was searching for a Birth of Jesus song for the craft sticks. I decided to make it a flip chart, like it called for. Christina Barkley, my niece, (she was one of the women who did the Teacher's Workshop that I posted photos of) gave me permission to use it, though she is not sure of the original author.

This is another of the projects I did with my granddaughter. She loves to do crafting and this is what I came up with. A mini book. I also created this as a cut, color and glue project. So, you have your choice to print in color or black and white.

This is a file folder game (FFG) that I play with my granddaughter. She is 3 and all I say is "Let's play a game" and it's all fun. But, with this birth of Jesus FFG, she remembers baby Jesus, His mom and earthly father's name, the stars are for the Shepherds visiting at night and the heart shape. I cut out the top of the stable for our FFG, and let her add star stickers. We can also review the animals. We can also talk about shepherds and their job taking care of the sheep.

My granddaughters love to sing Bible songs and hold up the sticks with the pictures on them! They love the Noah's Ark one, and we have a rainbow song, just to name a couple.

OK, something happened to the background of the blog, and when I came back to work on it, it had a terrible new look. So, don't be surprised to see several backgrounds while I try to find one I like, since I can't seem to find and replace what I had.

We are doing more Thanksgiving projects, it's hard to believe it is almost here! I am posting several different projects together. There are so many of these online, so it's a matter of finding what works best for you. I want to add Bible into projects when I can, so this is what we used. There is also a similar Birth of Jesus coming in a week or so. These are nice, since they are short and can keep a preschoolers attention.

During our study in the book of Acts, I have these posters that I clip to the top of the White Board. I can change them, add/subtract as I need to. I like them better than one poster board. I also use the arrows you see at the bottom to connect Paul to the people he is traveling with each week. I print and laminate them and have reused them for years. I also have a review sheet we use, and other printables.

I have the kids add a page when I am teaching Acts and I know it is a shorter lesson. Paul was so thankful to God for all that He had blessed him with. I try to have the kids remember the every day things that we have that God blesses us with.

This Noah's Ark Door Hanger printable has the ark with one door and one window.
This door hanger has a box attached to the bottom to hold the animals. This is intended for preschoolers to match up the animals, then add them to the 'ark'. If you do not want to use it as a door hanger, you could fold the top down and tuck it into the box while you are not using it. Instead of cutting out the circle, add a sticker or something of your choice. Or, just cut it above the top of the skyline to tuck it inside the box.

We talk about Noah's Ark a lot. I like to improve Bible knowledge, and education at the same time. With Noah, she learns Bible, God's promises, rainbows, and lots of animals. You can also throw in colors, counting, shapes and alphabet. Fantastic!

This is part 2 of a very condensed life of Moses. Following Acts, I do several lessons with Old Testament people to discuss the old law vs. the new law. What rules God tells us in the New Testament He expects us to follow. When Jesus died on the cross, God instituted some changes. Some of those are talked about in Acts 10:1-48 when we talked about Cornelius and Peter's vision.

Caterpillar to Butterfly Box & Song and Bible Box Visual
First, the Caterpillar to Butterfly Box
For the caterpillar box, I bought a box at Hobby Lobby. For how cheap it was, it was worth it to me to have a sturdy, already nicely finished outside. But, you could use a shoe box and cover it.
Both of these ideas are also from the Teachers Workshop I attended. This caterpillar box is for preschool ages, but the Bible box could be used for any age, with the right item tucked inside.
This is the inside of the box, with the caterpillar inside. I used 3, since I babysat 3 and I can let them hold the caterpillars. Plus, I bought them at Dollar Tree, and they happened to have different color faces.
The butterflies were purchased at Hobby Lobby. There are different sizes. You could also print and glue one to save the money. These look more real to me though, and kids like that factor.
Here is the song and you can print it here.
This song was given to me at the Teachers Workshop. I do not know the original owner.
There is also a flipchart that I made into a booklet in the Ideashop Magazine from Gospel Advocate if you have the old issues. It is in the Spring, March/April 1988, page 12 issue.
This Bible is a paper Mache book that I painted black. I painted the outside edges (that would be pages) metallic gold. I added the lettering with rub-ons I have in my scrapbook stash, but they could be painted on. I sliced a small line with my craft knife and slid the ribbon through for the marker. I glued that inside with the Aleene's Tacky Glue.
Now, you have a Bible that is a empty box inside to put unlimited visuals inside! This is an old concept, which I saw at the Teachers Workshop.
But, no matter how old of an idea it is, it might be new for someone else!
