So in effort to continue with our praise lessons, this week I found a fabulouso CD for kids worship. It's a fun, upbeat worship CD that's humorous and energetic. Does anyone else ever need that pep in their day? And just in time for Christmas, you can ask for this to be given, or as one mom stated- give it out as a gift. The album was released last year- so maybe I'm just the last one to hear about it- but either way it's worth the shout out.
Here is a link to you tube where they have simple cartoons, but also their music samples.
The name is "Happy Day Everyday" put our by Little Praise Party.
If you do a children's church (hint hint- April) you might want to consider buying it.
Our intentional Jesus relationship lesson this week was "God enjoys when we make a joyful noise unto Him."
And this is exactly that! It has music that is catchy and to the point. Did I mention that I loved it? Ok, ok- back to my point- in it, there is a song entitled, "Don't Be a Turkey"(which talks about being thankful)- and that took us to our next project of the week.
Here's a project I found just in time for Thanksgiving...Turkey Hats!
I found the idea off Pinterest (of course). The prep consisted of cutting construction paper pieces and setting out paint and glue- now that is my kind of prep!
My sample to show the kids...
We had our good buddies over to help us with this project.
First we painted the edge of paper plates...
Then we glued the bodies on our brown construction paper while the paint dried.
There are no pictures of this step because my lovely daughter decided to have an all out melt down at this point. The pictures resumed after we resolved it, made another, and played outside. I did think of grabbing the camera and taking a few of her melt down- but decided not.
So you just have to believe me when I say it was a good one.
After everything dried, we made head bands and stapled the turkey hats onto the head bands. Added a couple legs and whalaa, we had some stinkin cute finished crafts.
While everyone waited for the hats to dry, the kids all piled up in our dune buggy.
It was so refreshing to just do an easy craft. Every once in a while- I have to remind myself that simple is good. Anyone else ever feel the same way?
Have a great weekend! I have one more project to do and if it turns out you will see the picture soon!
Many blessings to all,
