It’s hard for me to watch how quickly my kids are growing up.
I long to enjoy this brief time I have with them and to deeply connect with them.
But, so often life gets in the way. Busyness. Grocery shopping and laundry, homeschooling and work, music lessons and dinner prep.
But, even in the busy times, I want to show my kids how how much I love them.
Maybe you feel the same way? If so, here’s a simple way to intentionally spend more time with your kids.
If you are a teacher, a busy mom, or a grandma who has little guests coming for Christmas, you are busy this Christmas. Yet, you don’t get a pass on finding ways to entertain your kids.
That is why, during this season especially, you need quick-prep, easy, and fun ideas to keep your kids or students busy.
These printable Christmas bookmarks deliver exactly that!
Christmas is coming! I absolutely love Christmas time.
But, sometimes I think that it is too easy for us to focus on the nativity, and forget that Jesus is so, so much more than a baby in a manger. He is the Prince of Peace, the Son of the Most High, the Good Shepherd, the Light of the World, the Lamb of God… and so much more!
Here is a printable paper Christmas Ornament that you can make with your kids – while discussing some of the different names of Jesus.
I can’t help it… I really, really love Christmas time.
I love the lights on the tree and the special foods. I love looking for the perfect gifts for the people I care about. I love the music.
I really, really love the music. I love hearing God’s name being praised and His amazing plan of salvation proclaimed while I am shopping at a store that would never otherwise play God-glorifying music.
Christmas is truly a time of peace and joy – not because of the lights and the presents and the ugly sweater parties – but because of the opportunity to slow down and reflect on God’s amazing plan of salvation.
Thanksgiving is just around the corner! Are you looking for a super-fun way to encourage your kids to be thankful? Here’s an idea: A Printable Thanksgiving Finger Puzzle.
Do your kids ever get frustrated because they can’t find verses in the Bible?
Let’s face it: Finding verses in the Bible can be difficult, even for adults. (Anyone else struggle finding their way around the minor prophets?)
But, here’s a super simple, fun way to help your kids to find their way around the Old Testament – Old Testament Bible Bookmarks.
If you are a Christian parent or teacher, you long to help your kids come to love God’s Word.
But, for many children, the Bible is complex and overwhelming. Even finding a verse in the Bible by themselves can be a huge challenge.
(And, if we’re honest, many of us adults hesitate for a second when we are asked to find the book of Philemon.)
How can we help our kids become familiar with the books of the Bible?
Here’s one way – New Testament Bible bookmarks!
