Stop-and-Go Devotional

Book Description

Help your young children learn to live for God!
Stop-and-Go Devotional provides short, active devotions based on Bible stories, designed for busy families with preschoolers and primary-grade children. Written by bestselling author Diane Stortz, this to-the-point, interactive devotional gives bite-size teachings on how to follow God.
Each short devotion consists of an action-filled Bible story (Stop and Read), an age-appropriate devotional thought with questions and a brief prayer (Think and Talk), and an easy and fun follow-up activity, a thought to remember, and a supporting Bible verse (Green Means Go!).
This book provides a way to have intentional quality time with your kids; it's fun, educational, and meaningful for your family's faith journey together.
My Review
The layout of this devotional is fun and interactive.  Here are the elements: 1. Stop and Read: a short story.  2. Think and Talk: questions and talking points as well as prayer. 3. Green Means Go: this is an activity to do together or a thought to remember and a verse to go along with it.   These elements make this devotional one that really is more of a teaching which allows parents the tools they need to teach part of the story.   I think it is great... its more than just reading it makes action happen behind the reading.  There are 52 devotionals in this book.  You could focus on 1 per week which will give you plenty of time to do the Green Means Go section.  I'm actually considering using this little devotional for our preschool kids at our church.   Each week an adult could do all three elements.

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
