With Valentine's Day just around the corner, we made peanut butter cookies with chocolate hearts in the middle.
For our Bible lesson tonight, we read from "Does God know how to Tie Shoes?" by Nancy White Carlstrom. If you haven't read it yet, I highly recommend it. It's a story of a little girl asking her parents questions about God. The parents answer each question from Scripture.
Here's an example:
"Does God know how to tie shoes, Papa?
By His Word the heavens and earth were made. He breathed and the stars took their place.
Mama, how does God talk?
Sometimes He whispers in a still, small voice. Like when you hold a seashell to your ear. Sometimes He roars over the water and His glory thunders."
taken from Psalm 33:6 and Psalm 29:3-4
An added attention getter for our particular audience is that the little girl in the book asking the questions is named Katrina. The kids were surprised to hear my name in a book, and they giggled everytime they heard it.
We finished the evening with a little art project taken from "365 Things to Make and Do" by Usborne books. This is also a book I highly recommend. It has a lot of fun ideas in it.
We made robot pictures by cutting out various pictures from assorted magazines.
We then assembled the pieces together into a robot shape.
As usual, a fun time was had by all.
