Summer 2013 continued...........

Here are the last few days of "Scripture Summer" ...

Proverbs 22:6

"Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it"

Since we were talking about TRAIN-ing....we went on a little train ride together for our activity:


James 2:26

"For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead"

So for our big activity, we did lots and lots of WORK around the house.  The kids were not too excited about this one, so I had a bonus one for all those who helped....

Deuteronomy 20:1 which says...

"When thou goest out to battle against thine enemies and seest horses and chariots, and a people more than thou, be not afraid of them: for the Lord thy God is with thee, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt."

So I found these catapult kits at the store for the kids to make and then have a catapult battle!!!


Luke 18:25

"For it is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye than for a rich man to enter into the Kingdom of God."

So the kids got to have a candy sell in front of the house......with the warning to not get greedy or let their "riches" canker their souls".  Ha ha ha!



Galatians 6:10-11

"As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith. Ye see how large a letter I have written unto you with mine own hand."

So I had the kids choose someone who had done good to them recently, and they wrote a card to them.


Numbers 15:32, 40

"And while the children of Israel were in the wilderness, they found a man that gathered sticks upon the Sabbath day"

We talked about how we should all be more careful about the things we do on the Sabbath....and not to "gather sticks" or otherwise work.  For fun, I bought each of the kids a container of popsicle sticks and they built themselves a neat little tower-thingy:

Psalms 33:3
"Sing unto him a new song; play skillfully with a loud noise."

 We learned a new song and sang it very skillfully, as you can imagine! 

1 Corinthians 15:33 
"Be not deceived: Evil communications corrupt good manners".
So we played a game of deception outside....."Kick The Can". 

Oh my goodness...what a workout!
 Mathew 3:6
"But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth"
For our activity, we did some secret service! 

Proverbs 24:3
Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established:
Today we did something that was totally unorthodox for me.  Using "Wisdom to build"   we took the mattresses off the kids beds, took all the cushions off the couches, brought out every sheet and blanket we owned and built a ginormous fort in the basement.  The kids were so excited about this activity!  They made themselves "rooms" and slept in them.  Then the next day they took it all down and built another one.  WHAT A MESS!  But a fun one! 
 Mathew 10:31 which says....
"But the very hairs of your head are all numbered"

Since it was the 4th of July, we sprayed the kids hair blue.  Doesn't Derek look awesome!!! be continued!!!
