Backdated post for July 2014
We did a bible study on Creation Days when Sweet Butterfly was about 34 months. I felt she hadn’t fully grasp it and decided to redo this study.
This time, we did a book. Sweet Butterfly was going through a stage where she didn’t like to sit and do ‘work’. But it helped when I told her we were going to make a book for Little Bro.
I printed graphics from Christian Preschool Printables and cut them up. Her job was to colour and paste them onto a paper. We worked together to bind it into a book. As she coloured and pasted, I reinforce the bible story.
She insisted on colouring everything purple for Day 5 and pasted a Flounder sticker. According to her, Flounder is a sea creature. Well, she’s not wrong.
We retold the stories using Spielgaben story mat and felt pieces I had from various felt boards. We talked about the creation of land animals and made up many other stories.
Added in a water play activity. Sea creatures created by God. Did a little fishing to practice hand-eye coordination and fine motor.
