My Review:
I received a free copy of this book through the BookLook program in exchange for an honest review.  
You all know I love a good kids child devotional book!   Did you know that once I go through the story with my kids I give these books I get for free as prizes to kids for our church movie night?  I love that many kids in my town are able to go home with the word of God accessible to them!  
So I love what Billy Graham's ministry has done over the centuries and this kids devotional book is a great tool to have for your family.   The stories are very brief yet easy to relate to  for kids and adults.  Each page has a title, a short scripture, and a story to go along with it.   The stories are encouraging and uplifting so whether you want to start your day with a positive or end it with a positive this book is sure to be a delight for your family devotional time.   Don't have a devotional time with your family??   It's easy to do get a Bible or devotional like this one and pick a time to read each day with your family.   Take time discussing what it means and then pray together.
There is one thing that I wish was different in this devotional. Its not a big deal since the book comes with a bookmark but  if your like me you want to start the book at the beginning.  Well, I got this book about a month ago and page one doesn't Devotional #1 it has January 1st.   So if you are like me and don't start right at the beginning of the year the dates at the top don't align correctly.  Not a big deal but just one I wanted to mention if you are a little OCD about things like that!  I am currently reading a couple stories a day to get us caught up on the correct day.... I know it is silly of me but being honest in these reviews.

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! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her

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!
