One thing I do with my kids after watching a movie is talking about connections we make from the movie to our Bible!  (At my church I get to do monthly movie nights and this is so fun)
Here are a few questions to get you started discussing this movie with your kids!

Questions for Consideration: 
1. What words would you use to describe yourself? How can you give those things to God? 
2. What’s the problem with trying to find your identity in accomplishments, careers, money, abilities or relationships?
 3. How does finding your identity in Christ give you greater freedom to pursue your goals and dreams in life?
Guiding Scripture:* “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” —Ephesians 2:10

Questions for Consideration:
 1. How is service a part of your life? How can you make it a bigger part? Write down some ways you can serve the people nearest you.
 2. Read Philippians 2:3. Why do you think humility and service are linked? How can being humble give you more opportunities to serve? 
3. What do you think Jesus meant when he said, “The greatest among you will be your servant” (Matthew 23:11)? How does serving make you great?
Guiding Scripture:* “The greatest among you will be your servant. For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.” —Matthew 23:11-12

Questions for Consideration: 
1. When have you showed courage? What was the result?
 2. Remember a time that someone’s bravery inspired you. Who was it and what did they do that motivated you to act courageously?
 3. In what area of your life do you need to show more courage? What is stopping you and how can you overcome that?
Guiding Scripture:* “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” —Joshua 1:9

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!
