Proverbs can move mountains! Want to make a difference? Be the difference! They always say if there is a topic you want to read about, go to the Bible. Porn? Bible. Good deeds? Bible. Heros? Bible. Murder? Bible. In this chapter, men learn how to be Godly men and Godly women. Learn how to be Confident, and teach your children confidence.
We introduced our study 7 weeks ago week briefly recapping the Proverbs 31’s introduction. We started a curriculum, with resources, to help parents teach children that they are worth more than rubies (31:10). We followed that teaching with activities to encourage your babies with confidence, respect, and goodness (31:11-12) and then Proverbs 31:13 Eager as a Beaver week. Once our children were aware it was okay and exciting to be eager every single day of their lives, teaching them work ethic in Proverbs 31:14 just made sense. It is important as parents that our children are aware women and men are both equally valuable (Proverbs 31:15), and that everyone has a role in the homestead of equal importance. Speaking of roles in the homestead, it is a-okay for both men and women to work and invest in their family (Proverbs 31:16), and no one, should be forbidden. This week, we will discuss how strong we can be!
Women, girls, we are strong!!!!!!
Men, boy… girls are strong!!!!!!
Do not ever underestimate the power of a female of God. Women of God are powerful, valuable, and strong. Without taking anything away from a man’s qualities…. realize with God:
- Women are powerful!
- Women are smart!
- Women are eager!
- Women are precious!
- Women are valuable!
- Women are important!
Join us this week as we explore the power of strong! One thing I absolutely adore my husband for is teaching my daughter that she is strong. When she is hurt, when she is said, daddy asks, “Are you strong?” and she throws up her arm flaunting her guns (that she actually has defined! Yay for two year olds! Now, can I go back and be two again???).
FYI: We’re having an easy week of instruction this week. While its important these kids know God, obviously, I have to remember that this curriculum is supplementing whatever they are already doing with you guys! So, this week is almost all games and experiments! Have fun!
- HopScotch Water Balloons: For my two year old, I drew shapes on the ground for our activity of the day. Then, I busted water balloons on top of the shape I wanted her to HOP to! For older kids, you can use a hopscotch drawing or connect the dots. After activity of course, its time for getting hit by those balloons!
- Discussion: Younger kids: was jumping tiring? Did you have to do a lot of work to finish jumping? Older kids: What was the best part of your day? Were the water balloons a great reward for playing the game? Was it fun? The balloons are like God’s grace. The relief after a hard day. The fun to work.
- M Coloring! & Filling the M with M&M’s!
- Ready Set Go, Red Light/Green Light: We actually colored a huge stop light for the game! Putting actions to symbols is a new concept for my two year old, and she had a rough time with it, but caught on. Its a child hood favorite of mine, and a great conceptual activity that I never realized could be challenging!
- Counting Sequential Objects: M&M counting, Marshmallow Counting, Marble Counting, Marker Counting
- M is for Map! Map Game! (video coming!)
- Milk and Food Coloring: Place milk in a bowl, and drop in food coloring one a time. Let child draw a toothpick through the milk and see what happens! Its magic. No, its God’s grace! We can’t predict it, but we can see it happening.
