{HomeSchool}: Weekly Update

In continuing with the theme "Jesus is my Shepherd" and reading Psalms 23, we made "hand" sheep, had an activity to erase our sins away, and then used the colors red and black to make a ladybug.

This week was a lot like the last, and so I didn't get a lot of pictures.  Sadly, our favorite activity was a sort of fail and I didn't snap one picture of it.  Next time, folks.

We first traced Knox's hand to make a sheep (his thumb being the head).  He thought it was hilarious, and it did kind of look funny.

Then, we put paint in a ziploc and used a popsicle stick to draw in it.  You have to use your imagination, because I forgot to take pics.  The premise is that you can draw (basically pushing the paint aside and you can see the hard surface beneath).  But then if you push the paint down again, it erases the drawing, kind of like an etch-a-sketch.  This was to point out that God erases our sins if we choose to follow him.  Cute, but the project didn't work out like we planned, and I don't think Knox liked the fact that he couldn't get dirty :)

Then, practicing the colors red and black, we made a ladybug.  He had fun coloring the spots black, and then went a little crazy with the red!

All in all it was a great week, and we can't wait to see what's in store next week!
