every kid loves a paper chain. they are the perfect visual representation of time. last week, i attended a ladies christmas brunch and got this idea for a paper chain with a twist.
the idea is to print scriptures out (mine are really simple, toddler approved) and then cut them into strips of paper and make a chain…one link for every day left until christmas. (the adorable christmas blocks spell “believe” and are from costco.)
every day we take off a link, cut out the scripture and glue it on to a piece of construction paper. then i print a coloring sheet out (i google images) that goes with the scripture. as addy and i color the picture, we talk about the scripture.
by the way…life isn’t always perfect in the burtt home. this is a three year old melt down…this picture is “extreme” disappointment, in case you can’t tell!
p.s. these are the scriptures the ladies’ brunch suggested:
1 corinthians 16:14
1 thessalonians 5:11
1 thessalonians 5:15
i john 3:18
1 thessalonians 5:18
