Every week I work in the nursery at our Church on Saturday night, then we attend Church Sunday morning. Both days Abby and Micah go to their Bible classes where they hear a Bible story, have praise and worship and make a craft. With the new curriculum our Church started last year each week there is also a memory verse to go with the story. Abby has gotten really amazing at memorizing her verses. I tried to keep a note on my iphone of all her verses but somehow my iphone or itunes ate the note and it's gone. (Which after realizing some of my notes are missing I'm ever so excited for my Erin Condren planner to get here because I know my lists and notes won't disappear from it!)
Each week the kids come home with two crafts a piece (it will be 3 for Micah once the ladies Bible study starts up in a month!) so crafts quickly pile up around here. I've seen ideas for scanning art work into the computer and saving it or putting it into a collage and on Pinterest the other day I saw a neat idea for a prayer book with pictures of family/friends to pray for (one of my next projects!) so I combined the two ideas to create this memory verse book for the kids.
I took these prayer warrior badges and The Lord's Prayer that Abby memorized during the summer curriculum.
Then I took the Jonah crafts that they made last weekend and scanned them into the computer, added the week's verse and printed them as 4x6 pictures.
Then I picked up these photo albums at Target.
I put the pictures and Lord's prayer Bibles into the photo album.
I got out the silhouette and some black vinyl and cut out a verse for the front cover.
And now the kids each have a book with their memory verses so we can remember all of them as they learn new ones and I don't have a pile of crafts around my house because I really don't like throwing away crafts but I can't keep all of them!
