I have such a good time doing little projects or crafts with Luke. I keep it super simple, and he has a great time. He likes doing new things and my undivided attention. He’s learning so much right now; its exciting to foster that learning and watch him as he grows. I also try to use the creative, crafting time to teach him about God, the Creator of all things.
This past week, his Sunday School lesson was over the story of God sending fire from heaven in 1 Kings 18:20-40, with the emphasis that there is only one God. I try to review what he’s learning in SS at home – it’s simple for me to use the take home sheet and the more times and more ways he hears a story or concept, the more likely he is to remember it. So we made fire; but it was a great opportunity to explain that the only way we can make fire is from something else. God is God Alone and he can make fire from nothing. So we worship Him!
Luke got to cut with scissors for the first time (I think) and glue all by himself, while we talked about the Only God and the He Alone is worthy of our worship.
I love getting to have this time with him to teach him about the Holy God and encourage his creativity. What do you mamas do with your little ones to show them the Lord and/or help them learn?
