Theme: Order Discovering: Wonder Part 2!

We can also lead in discovery by sharing our gifts and our interests with our children.  If we have the gift of car repair, baking, gardening or carpentry, have your children at an early age be your assistants. Let them see you change a car’s oil. Bake some cookies together. Help them with their own garden. Let them wear their own tool belt.  If you don’t have those skills, introduce your children to other mentors who can share in raising your children to be curious, to be critical problem-solvers and to be wonderers.

FAMILY ACTIVITIES

  • Go for a hike, take a walk on a beach, and go somewhere you haven’t been.
  • See the world from a different perspective by going snorkeling, traveling by canoe, or climbing a tree.
  • Get an astronomy book, grab a telescope, and spend some time away from the city and take a look at the stars.
  • Grab a microscope and show your children all sorts of different plant cells and rock crystals. They can be in your kitchen, in your backyard, or in a local stream.
  • Psalm 19 (read the whole chapter!)
  • MEMORY VERSE

    Psalm19:1-4

    The heavens keep telling the wonders of God, and the skies declare what he has done. Each day informs the following day; each night announces to the next. They don’t speak a word, and there is never the sound of a voice. Yet their message reaches all the earth, and it travels around the world.
