I told you I was going to post all the ABC scriptures Lydia and I did before I started this blog. Well, the letter A was a pretty good one. But when I realized *this* was all I had for the letter B, I thought, “Oh, wow. That’s a little embarassing.” Not too crafty. Not even very thematic. Oh well. You know by now this blog is not about craftiness…it’s about dropping God’s Word in our kids’ hearts, however and whenever we can!
I remember I just let Lydia look through all my stickers (I have quite a lot because I’ve been saving them all my life. Seriously, do you see the red & yellow “b” on the left? I got that as a prize inside Alphabits cereal when I was a kid.). Hmm. Where was I? Oh yeah, I let Lydia look through all my stickers until we found one that started with the letter “B”.
Our verse is Acts 16:31, “Believe in the Lord Jesus…” The rest of the verse says, “…and you will be saved—you and your household.” When she was little, I just gave her snippets of scripture because I wasn’t sure if she could memorize a long piece. Now I know, I should have given her the whole thing–including the reference. Preschoolers can memorize anything, so make it worth your time and theirs by teaching the whole verse!
I can’t remember what else we did with this verse except I KNOW we read The B Book by Jan and Stan Bernstain. Lydia still loves that book and I can quote the whole thing for you: “Big. Big Brown. Big Brown Bear. Big Brown Bear, Blue Bull…”
I don’t want to leave your craftiness completely unsatisifed, so here are some really cute “B” crafts for you and your kiddos:
