Bringing the Story of King David & Samuel to Life by Anointing and Blessing Your Kids

We did something really special and fun with our kids this weekend that we’d never done before but definitely will do again – we gave them a blessing and anointed them with oil. It was simple and sweet and our whole family loved it. I felt funny about it at first and thought it might be kind of weird, but it was really the most special thing. We are trying our best to teach our kids about Jesus and bring the bible to life for them using the Jesus Storybook Bible, and this was another way to accomplish that. We simply read the story of Samuel anointing David as God chooses him as Israel’s future king and then gave our kids a blessing. I’ll share with you how we did it so you can try it with your family. Be sure to check out the entire Jesus Storybook Bible Activity Series here at My Mundane and Miraculous Life.

We love to try new painting techniques in our home preschool, and found two different way to paint with plastic wrap as part of a month long Painting Challenge. With this challenge, it is all about the process of kids creating art, not a Pinterest perfect finished product.

Rainbow Resist Art Painting ~ Creative Activities for Kids

Rainbow Resist Art Painting for PreschoolersIn our home preschool activities we often focus on colors and letters. The Bear (3.5) knows all the basic colors and can identify most of his letters. We started working on color order and learning the rainbow. We sing a song from Mickey Mouse Club House that puts the colors in rainbow order, and I thought it would be fun to make a rainbow resist art painting in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. I’m hosting the Creative Activities for Kids Monthly Blog Hop here on Bare Feet on the Dashboard. You can see the full collection of monthly themed posts from my fellow Kid Blogger Network writers on the series page here, and check out all the other rainbow and St. Patrick’s Day activities at the bottom of this post.
