The Beginner's Bible 25th Birthday Celebration and Giveaway

Come and CELEBRATE with The Beginners Bible as they have been around for 25 years!   

You can get your own ideas to celebrate The Beginner's Bible by having your own party.   Their website has so many great tools from party invites, to coloring printables,  to snack ideas

To celebrate my kids and I colored the placemats, made bracelets, and made some salt dough keepsakes! My daughter also got to take one of her "Beginner's Bible" to kids camp.  

Happy 25th birthday "The Beginner's Bible!" 

The first activity we did was print a few of the placemats off of "The Beginner's Bible."  M daughter picked the picture that went along with Jonah and the big fish and she was able to tell me the story.    

My son picked the Noah's Ark story and as you can see we are still beginners at coloring... I am trying to get him to hold any writing utensil the correct way rather then a grasp.  

After coloring we used pipe cleaners to string on some beads to make a bracelet.  Titus kept his Noah's Ark theme as he used animal and ark beads in his.  

My daughter loved all the bright colored beads that matched the WWJD cross beads.  

On to making a pretend cake with salt dough.  My kids each wanted to make a cake with the salt dough and then use some beads to decorate it.   I have to say they were very creative and had a lot of fun!                      Salt Dough Recipe: 1 part salt, flour, and water.  Add some food coloring and knead till good texture for play.  

I on the other hand decided to make some fun faces!  

The kids and I had a fun time celebrating and plan to do similar activities with our kids church over the next couple weeks.   I highly encourage you to check out all the fun activities that The Beginner's Bible has on their website!
