This week we read the story of Jesus Calming the Sea from our Young Readers Bible. Bekah really loves when we read her Bible to her. I saw this great idea at I Can Teach My Child. She has tons of great ideas on her site. We had a great time doing this story and craft together.
First, we read the story together. Bekah then decided that the stormy side should be black with blue rain drops, black clouds, lightening, and purple waves. She loves to paint, so this was a perfect project for her. We added a boat attached with a brad so we could rock the boat and Jesus sleeping (which I drew for her). She helped color him and thought he looked great in his "yellow jammies."
You've gotta love her placement of the lightening bolts and the rainbow blanket! I love the imagination of a 4 year old!
Then instead of waiting for it to dry and doing the calm seas on the other side of the paper, we just did another one. (what can I say, we were in a hurry since baby sister was napping!) =)
Bekah made a beautiful blue sky with pink clouds (I guess she's heard that pink skies are a sailors delight!) and blue water. We added another boat, Jesus calming the sea, and a sunshine.
