A to Z Bible People Pictures to Color

I am working on some alphabet printables, and since this is one is ready, I decided to post it! This is a coloring book, mostly for preschool. I tried to keep the pages simple. They would be suitable for early elementary also.

The people were so excited to hear Paul preach, he preached all day!
The lamps were lit and Eutychus fell asleep and fell out of the window.

Paul Preaches About God the Creator at Mars Hill in Athens
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.

Birth of Jesus Book & Cards

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!

Aquila & Priscilla
Paul made tents with Aquila and Priscilla. So, the project is a craft that can be Print-and-Go, or you can sew the printable banner to felt to make a banner.

Lydia: Seller of Purple Cloth
Paul teaches Lydia about Jesus. We learned about the purple fabric that Lydia made and why it was so important and expensive.

Tiny Baby Jesus Flip Chart, Song & More for Preschool

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.

Timothy is one of the men that Paul travels and teaches with. The printable for this lesson is a review of the other men that Paul traveled with.

Birth of Jesus Cut & Glue Mini Book for Preschool

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.

Birth of Jesus File Folder Game & More for Preschoolers

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.

Baby Jesus Song & More for Preschool
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.

Life of Paul Train Lift-The-Flap Review Visuals

I use this train for our study in Acts. (I also use it for Genesis & Old Testament) You can find the train at your local teacher's supply store or here.

Blog background?

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.

Thanksgiving for Preschool

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.

Traveling With Paul Posters

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 Thank You God for Everything Book

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.

Saul Sees the Light
       I love teaching about Paul! When I teach Acts, I teach the lessons about the early Christians first, then I teach the lessons for Paul. It is easier for them to remember the timeline for him.

Jesus is Tempted
After Jesus was baptized by His cousin John, He went to the wilderness.
After fasting for 40 days, Satan went to Jesus and tempted Him.

Noah's Ark Door Hanger

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.

Cornelius & Peter’s Vision
This lesson combines both Peter's Vision he had on the rooftop and continues with Peter traveling to see Cornelius and teaching him about Jesus.

 Letters From Paul (after Acts).

Noah's Ark FFG, Song & More for Preschool

 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!

Moses and the 10 Commandments
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.

Life of Paul Lapbook

We will be using a lapbook each week while we study the life of the Apostle Paul. I will add each part when I add the Bible lesson to the blog. There is too much to add it all at once. But here are the pictures of what it looks like, and basically what to expect.

Caterpillar and Bible Boxes

 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!

Jesus Loves All the Children File Folder Game

All I have to do is say "Let's play a game!" And it's fun to learn!
I will randomly post Bible things that I do with my grandchildren. They are preschool ages.

Stephen is Persecuted
This file folder game (FFG) will be as review and the students can take home.

Ananias & Sapphira
This is such a good lesson! It can really make the kids think about consequences for their actions.
