Raise your hand if you are a children's church volunteer or teacher? Some are volunteers and some are the blessed few who have this as a full-time job. Either way, everyone is always looking for the next curriculum to use with their students and what is the best for each age group.
You all know I have enjoyed "the Jesus Storybook Bible" videos and have used it to teach my students in children's church they now offer a curriculum package! This is 44 weeks of lessons!!! How awesome is that! All you need is your computer and a printer and you are set for weeks!
It is such a nice addition to a great Bible for kids. The CD's are easy to work with and printing was easy... ver simple, especially for those who think they are not very techy! The curriculum has instructions on how to use it and the kids have a page they can take home every lesson. There is a huge variety in the lessons!
Thanks Zondervan for sending me this curriculum for free in exchange for an honest review. I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.
This is a great curriculum to buy for your church or home!

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!
MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast. I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book. I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments! The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes! :) SO EASY! Here is a great video explaining more about the product. There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create. THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online. The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create. :) One feature t
