Mrs. Rosey Posey and the Baby Bird

I’m at the Blissdom Conference right now. Like literally sitting in a writing workshop (it hasn’t started yet) and ready to learn a little bit about my (ahem) writing. I’ll be gone from the kids for FOUR days. Thankfully I have a huge wonderful easy-going family around me that is willing to help whenever and wherever. So, the kids will hardly remember I’m gone, I’m sure.

Before I left, I wanted to do a craft with the kids that would remind them of me…or well, really that God is close to both of us regardless of where we are. So, I grabbed one of my favorite books, Mrs. Rosey Posey and the Baby Bird read it with the kids. It’s just a simple story that teaches that God sees everything–and loves and knows us all.

supplies: glue, paint, construction paper, paper plate, tissue paper

We painted a paper plate, added some construction paper triangles for feathers and a few foam stickers. We cut tissue paper into strips and twisted them together for a tail.

Then we added the finishing touch—the scripture from the book.

Lydia thought it was fun because it was “hidden”. The next day she said to me, “I’m taking my bird to Grammy’s house.” I asked her why and she said, “It reminds me that God can see me and you when you are gone.”

Luke 12: 6-7 bible craft

And the best part is the birds rock back and forth–Lydia is already trying to feed hers some seeds!

I’ll see you next week after Blissdom!
