Tell the Good News {31 Days of Bible Crafts}: Paul and Lydia

The other day, my kids (age 2 & 3) came home from their Wednesday night Tiny Tots class, proudly waving this craft around for all to see.  I thought the craft was adorable, what really impressed me was hearing the kids say their verse from the lesson.

Cook.  We've been using the Read and Share Bible for our now 2-year old daughter, but I thought this new Bible might be a better fit.  Here's the scoop: The Good The Table of Contents: I like the Scripture references next to the stories.  It would have been nice if those were on the actual pages as well.
