Doodle Devotions WK 2

Hello! I hope that the pages I’ve created have been a help for some of you! It is my heart, to come alongside others to encourage and support!

I’m especially sensitive to young Mom’s because I believe the call God has placed on their lives is of the utmost importance!

“Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.” -Deuteronomy 6:4-9

If you are new to my blog, please go HERE to catch up on what I’m providing through “DOODLE DEVOTIONS

God had a plan for His family all along. He knew that Adam and Eve would make some bad choices, which would separate them from their Holy Father. The thing is, God is all about love, and had a rescue plan in place from the very beginning. We are ALL made in God’s image, and through Christ, we are adopted as sons and daughters of the King. We are a Royal family.

Below are some pages for you to print and complete. Use the Doodle exercises to practice drawing people, and then add them to your Family Tree and “Snap Shot” page.

Note that the The family tree is not “Biblically complete!” I want your kids to know that from the time God created Adam and Eve, HE had THEM in mind, and one day, they would be born into God’s family.

The next 3 pages are Challenge Worksheets for Scripture Study for ages 6 and above. I use this 3,2,1 Method of study myself, and often teach it to adult classes. It’s a great structure of studying God’s Word verse by verse.

Below are step by step Photos of the Floppy Ear Dog Craft. Written instructions are on the activity page above.

Needed: Printed Dog page, scissors, glue stick

I initially watched the video below for this cute idea. It might help to watch it first, though it took me some time to figure out dimensions and how to make it work! It’s quick!

Dog demo starts at about the 0:24 mark

Choose to print in Black and White or Color. IF you print in Black and White you can color it in yourself!

(it is best to print this on cardstock)
Next, cut out each piece
On the background square, Cut a slit where you see a grey line
It’s easier to cut if you gently fold, but try not to create a crease line
Glue the tongue to the Ears like above
I added this tan “body piece” in the wrong order. Do this first, then work on the
dark brown face:)
Apply some glue to the back of the face piece (stay above the area where the face lays on top of the slit. You only need about the width of your glue stick at the top.) 3/4 of the face remains “free and unglued.” Line up the top straight edge of the face with the top edge of the background square. The tab should be sticking up above that.
Glue on eyes and nose
Flip the whole thing over again and fold the outside edges of the background piece to the back. (About 1/4 inch) Once folded, the final back piece should line up to be the same size with the edges folded down.
Fold the ears down, gently pull tongue to make ears lift up. He is listening to God’s Word!

The Last craft activity on the “Activity Page-Do It” are the “Encouragement Cards.” If it weren’t for our current Covid 19 status, these would be perfect to leave hanging on a mailbox, left for a delivery person, or hanging on your neighbor’s door. Save those ideas for another day, and make them for your family, or whoever you are quarantined with!

OPTION 2: You could take a photo of a finished tag hanging in YOUR HOME for someone you can’t be with in person THEN TEXT the photo to them!!! That would surely brighten someone’s day:)

I LOVE MUSIC, AND I LOVE MUSIC MAE from Crossroads Community Church Kids Club.
Each of my weekly post will include video lessons and songs from this FREE resource. KIDS, TRY THE CUP MOVES AND PLAY ALONG WITH THE VIDEO!

My goal for posting is EVERY FRIDAY, so that adults have a few days during the weekend to look over the material for the following week. Some of you may choose to pick a few activities/lessons for use on Sunday morning. I’d love to hear how YOU are using these resources! It would help me a great deal in making these better for you!

The material this week took me much longer than I expected, so I couldn’t get this post ready until today! It was fun for me, I hope you enjoy it with your kids!

Much love,

Doodle Devotions

Hello!

I’ve been prayerfully considering what I can do to help families who are house bound during this pandemic. My daughter is in Denver with 3 young children and my Son is close by with 2 of his own. I have many friends and relatives who are Mom’s of school age kids, and I know that it is extremely challenging to provide activities and learning opportunities all day…everyday!

Because I was once VERY LOST, and the Lord RESCUED me, I am daily grateful…so much so, that I desire to use ANY gifts He has blessed me with to bless others. This comes from a place of remembering where I have been, and thriving in the new life God has graciously extended to undeserving me. I want to use what I have to help! I have a background in Children’s Ministry, Women’s Ministry, theater and art…I am a creative who LOVES God’s Word!

All that to say…I will be posting free Biblical lessons and activities for children, including step by step drawings with short topical devotionals. These posts will include links to fun teaching videos for kids that will deepen their understanding of God’s Word…His Story…THEIR story.

I will include free printable coloring pages, printable doodle 101 instructions and worksheets for kids who are able to read and write. The video links come from our local church CROSSROADS. These kid videos are SO well done, and will round out the lesson posts perfectly! Thank you CROSSROADS COMMUNITY CHURCH!

I’m not the most organized, but aim to create posts that follow the Bible chronologically, with a few “random” devotionals along the way 😜 These posts will have enough material for you to pick and choose for the specific ages of your children (Or grandchildren!) and can be used to supplement your weekday or weekend activities.

We’ll learn together as we go! I’m eager to hear back from you about what works and what you might need more of! I would LOVE to know how I can make what I do better for you! As parents, we are called to train up our children…they are really HIS KIDS.

Week One will be about CREATION. That Post is coming to you tomorrow! My hope is that you will look over the material, and use the weekend to decide how you can best utilize it for your family. (A little each day, one day a week, or a supplement for your Sunday Worship)

Hang in there Moms…God is sending His love and encouragement in so many ways…don’t forget to look up!

Much love in Christ,

Today I completed H, I & J….yay! Only 16 to go!

Hoping my daughter will “capture a moment” of glee, when Annabelle opens her mailbox:) I’ve never known a little girl more crazy over the alphabet!

2 year old Annabelle June is already an artist:)  She has an art table at home in Denver, so I knew she needed one here at Mimi’s house too!  My hubby and I found this beautiful desk at our favorite antique mall in town and “Poopah” went right to work cutting the legs down to make the table JUST RIGHT for our Babygirl.

IMG_7355I love the interesting details, and the color was perfect.

IMG_7345The paper tray was just the right fit, and I found a laminated poster reproduction of an Ad page from our local paper that dated back to 1931.  (I use to work in the Carew Tower downtown/the heading at the top of the page)

IMG_7352I love this old letter holder, and Annabelle LOVED all the markers and stamps it holds.

IMG_7357The are Gramophones, used here to hold pens and crayons.

They were inexpensive to buy to my surprise…$2-$5 dollars, depending on the quality.
