We need to add another layer.
Last post I showed Easter baskets with books in them. I wanted to show you some of the crafts and activites from two of the books. These pictures have been on the blog in the past, so they will look familiar if you've followed this blog or my family one.
Activties and crafts from Just for Me! My Family
|Bowling game, My Family pages 19-20|
|Our original game from when I was creating crafts for the book.|
|Family Tree, My Family pages 16-17, for my adopted children, we added roots with their birth parents' names|
|Protect the Egg Game, My Family pages 33-34|
|Penguin cupcakes, My Family pgs 30-32|
|Tic Tac Toe Game, My Family pgs 50-51, we ended the games when all the candy had been eaten! You can substitute healthy playing pieces of course.|
|Indoor Tic Tac Toe, My Family, pages 49-50. The directions are for playing outside, but all the activities can be adapted to your own needs.|
|Flying Disc Game, My Family pages 66-67|
Just for Me! My Family has ten chapters covering family living:
God Made Families
Part of the Family
My Family is Special
My Extended Family
It's good for any family, but it is especially useful for adoptive families to start discussions about what a family is and what place the adopted child has in it. Available HERE
Crafts from The Christian Girl's Guide to the Bible:
When we did the crafts for this book I still had a film camera so I don't have that many pictures of the crafts. But we redid some of them with the twins so I have those.
