Here we are at the letter G! This is one of my favorites–it’s my favorite color, one of my favorite fruits, a favorite verse and the craft actually turned out pretty cute. I just drew a bunch of grapes and let Lydia glue some pieces of purple tissue paper on it. I am pretty sure we tried to scrunch the paper up first…but I don’t think it worked to well.
When Lydia was this age (about 27 months) I remember that I would always get a muffin cup and pour some white glue into it, then let her use a q-tip to rub the glue around on her crafts. Now we use a glue stick–and that seems like a much better idea!
I chose 1 John 4:8 because, well, it’s one of the first “G” verses that popped into my head–one I memorized when I was a kid. But I think this simple 3 word verse is important. The world questions God at every turn. They paint him as austere, vengeful and mean. I want my children’s first thought and first definition of God to be LOVE.
