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!

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
