Stickers Through the Bible: Review and Recommendations

Stickers Through the Bible: Review and Recommendations

This year, we started a brand new curriculum from Kidology called "Stickers Through the Bible".    Stickers Through the Bible is a revolutionary new Bible curriculum for non-readers. By placing beautiful stickers into their Bibles, kids gain a love for God’s Word while gaining an understanding of the overall Story of the Bible. Just before I discovered this hot off the press curriculum, my friend Paulette and I were lamenting that there was no "in between" Bible for kids. You go straight from … [Read more...]

Teaching Kids the Catechism: The Trinity

Teaching Kids the Catechism: The Trinity

Reverse Easter Egg Hunt: Great for Older Kids (even teens!)

Last year, we were looking for some family friendly Easter activities for the kids in the family who aren't really kids anymore!  I listed a few of the activities we did in this post (the egg-drop was a huge hit), but I didn't give you any details on our Reverse Easter Egg Hunt that was the highlight of the event. Well, the wait is over! The Basics In this reverse Easter egg hunt, instead of looking FOR eggs, participants START with an egg and then find places on a list.  The idea is to … [Read more...]
