Craft Time

Sorry it has been so long since you guys have heard from me. I have been very busy (working, taking care of a very active toddler, and getting my teaching series ready for the month of September). I am so excited about teaching the middle school students on Wednesday nights. I wouldn't have been so busy if I would have just taken some lessons from a book but NO Alice has to always make things difficult. I thought I had to make up the lessons and then find verses to go with them and get object lessons and games for each one. Some of the books that are out with games, crafts and a bible lesson are not what I am looking for in order to hold the students attention so I do feel like I need to adjust everything to fit with the group of kids that I will be teaching. Enough about me.

The picture above shows what Mili and I have been doing. We made a noise maker out of a toilet paper roll, paper, and stickers. If you look closely, you might be able to see that the stickers are from a visa or master card application. You know the ones where you pick out what your card will have on it (hey, they were free.....what can I say). Mili loved her noise maker for a whole two days. She kept putting it in her mouth and it finally tore. Mili has been coloring the last couple of days. I bought her some crayons and she goes crazy with them. We have to be careful where she is coloring. I printed off some free color sheets from the internet. She has colored....Joseph and the coat of many colors, Daniel and the lion's den, and Jonah and the big fish. She will be coloring in the lines by next week.

I am pooped...I was up til 12:30 last night (or this morning) and Mili was up by 6:30 this morning. I am telling you this to tell you Good Night.

Hugs and Kisses to all!

My kids loved their noise makers. We put macaroni in a plastic bottle, and small jingle bells in another! Drove me nuts, but that probably added to their joy with them!
