So one thing that I am doing today is this. I already made one last week and nothing has grown... so we are doing a do over!!
For Homeschooling Mommas I highly recommend Homeschool Creations. There a lot of great ideas and encouragement here. Check it out!!
Family TimeThis is something you can do as a family. I like that I will be focusing on the last days before Easter. I will be reading passages and most likely renacting them or explaining them to our boys. If you haven't heard of Thriving Family Magazine - IT IS WONDERFUL!! It is by Focus on the Family.
Thriving Family Magazine - Easter Activities
In the Kitchen - Resurrection CookiesI plan on being in the kitchen with my boys on Friday. We will be making these Resurrection Cookies
You can find the recipe at The Alabaster Jar. Jolene Engle is a wonderful woman of God. On the post she has many other ideas to do. Her blog is wonderful!!
Mini- MovieI believe that visuals are so important for a child to grasp the meaning of anything - at least for my boys it's a must!! So I thought of sharing this 3 minute video with them. The greatest part is that it is narrated by two little girls. It is a must see!!

So please just leave me a comment and I will respond ASAP!! If you know of any other Sunday School Teachers spread the word to follow along!!
