Okay I am going to be honest here…I am tired. Tired of moving this silly elf, tired of staying up way past my bed time to research new bible verses. Then finding the time (usually in the morning before the kids get up) to update the blog about it. That being said, I find it all WORTH IT. Teaching the bible is so important! I am glad that my kids (and hopefully yours too) are responding so well. They are listening to it, talking about it, and even LIVING it. So it makes it all worth it! So if you like this blog, please share it! Share with others, so that maybe everyone will teach the bible with the Elf on the Shelf, rather than just have it be a naughty elf.
Day 11 the bible verse was about the fruit of the spirit. Our elf was in a fruit basket of course! (I am going to be honest, I did not think of this idea. I got inspiration from an amazing Mommy friend of mine. She is also teaching the bible with her elf and she shared this with me!)
Galatians 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
This verse teaches so much! Rather than doing something for someone else today, Elfie asked the girls to create a chart saying how they have the different fruits of the spirit. How they can show these things. We also discussed how some are easy, like love and gentleness, but some are very hard, like self-control.
I am attaching our note and the chart that I created to have the girls discuss the different fruits of the spirit. They are all in the same word document. Click kindness elf day 11!
My 5 year old wanted a SUPERHERO birthday party this year. We had so much fun putting everything together. I wanted to share some of the best parts of the party with you! I will then make other posts with step by step instructions so you can easily make your own party!
I did a lot of research on how to create a great party for her. I found that some of the best pictures I saw there were some VERY expensive decorations, cake, favors and whatnot. I used ideas and a budget…This party was not super expensive, wasn’t too hard, and was SO MUCH FUN!
I plan on posting more pictures and tutorials on how to make this stuff yourself soon! Plus how I did it on a budget.
