Charlie Brown Thanksgiving Bible Lesson

You probably don’t normally think “Charlie Brown” when you think of Bible lessons. You probably don’t think “chalk art,” either, for that matter. Our small church body is in that place where we have a small class with a few students in a wide range of ages, and teaching to each age simultaneously can be a bit of a challenge. (Thankfully, I do have a smidge of experience in that department.) That said, I do like to think outside the box a little bit. I initially thought I’d do this Charlie Brown Thanksgiving Chalk Art Tutorial from Hodge Podge at home with my

The Crossmaker – Easter Art DVD from See the Light

The events we celebrate through both of these are equally important for the fulfillment of God’s plan for salvation – and they shine of His Glory!

The Gift of Love, See the Light Shine Art DVD Review

The Gift of Love by See the Light Shine We like to draw, doodle, and paint here at our house. We also like to use materials that are biblically based. And we like to incorporate holiday studies and crafts into our school day. So as we’re heading into Advent season and looking for ways to dwell upon The Reason for the season even during the school day, “The Gift of Love” by See the Light Shine certainly seems to fit the bill, doesn’t it?
