Bible School

Bible School is long over, and just now I am posting it. We did a three day Bible School this year for various reasons. Our beautiful and sweet older girls did the music again. What a blessing it is to have them take over and manage it. They do a great job. (L to R: Brittney, Laken, L. and M.)
Paula and Gaylin handled the opening intro to the stories. Our theme was a farm one: "Hay Day."
I already posted the clinging crosses that we made, here. A second craft was these "painted" rocks. There are lots of examples on line that are gorgeous. The kids enjoyed these and they were simple and inexpensive. I printed out several sheets of sample ideas to get them going. We used black and silver permanent markers for simplicity and contrast. They were to design one rock with at least one word on it. They could make up to three rocks, until everyone was done, and if there were leftovers they could do more. This was a very popular and successful craft. There are many Bible verses referencing rock, foundation, etc. that these can be paired with. I once saw a cute thumbprint baby Jesus that would be a great Christmas craft. I have even seen painted rock nativities. Try googling "rock crafts."
