Welcome back to Latticed Learning!  This year, we're continuing to learn while we play - repeating many of our favorites from last year while adding in all sorts of new activities as well.

This day's post is devoted to our weekly Bible stories - some weeks have more activities than others, but each lesson will help your little one grow closer to God!

Read the Bible

Pages pages 473-487 in this Bible and 333-339 in this one

Read a Little More

I wasn't aware of any other books for this week, but I did manage to hunt up a few that look promising:

The Day When God Made Church

The Very First Christians

The Time of the Church Activity Book


The Pentecost Story

Sing Some Songs

I came up with a couple of good songs for this week:

O For a Thousand Tongues to Sing

Holy Spirit

Breathe on Us

Spirit of the Living God

Watch Some Videos

Play and Create

We did a few things to learn more about the early church:

First, Gv glued and glittered up a flame hat for Pentecost:

I cut a sheet of yellow construction paper in half to make the band, then cut out graduated flame shapes in yellow, orange and red.  She glued them all down and glittered them up.  We glued a craft stick to the back of the flame so that it would stand up better.

Then we made this Holy Spirit windsock:

Tape a sheet of red construction paper so that it forms a lengthwise cylinder, then glue a white dove on the front and strips of orange tissue paper streamers on the bottom.

We practiced the Apostle's Creed by adding these cute pages to one of our photo albums from the dollar store:

We made this little healed lame man (using this graphic as a guide) after we talked about some of the miracles the apostles performed:

Gv insisted on purple hair for this little dude.  She colored that and his face and then decided her coloring time was done.

We just sliced the little guy in half with some scissors and then added a brad so that Gv could make him dance about.
