For Christian parents, integrating faith into family life is a top priority. One of the best ways parents can model a living, active relationship with Christ is to emphasize the importance of the Bible in your family's day-to-day life. You can hide God's Word in your own hearts and the hearts of your children by learning verses as a family and discussing together what those verses mean in your lives. These calendar pages from Awana will help you do just that!
How To Use These Pages:
To help make this a family project, we've divided the verses into three parts. Preschoolers memorize the words printed in bold. Elementary kids memorize the words in bold and italics. Older teens and parents learn the complete verse.
April 19 Lily craft You'll need:
- Colored construction paper
- Green pipe cleaners or straws
- Tape or glue
Trace your children's handprints on the construction paper, then cut out the drawings. Curl the fingers of the handprints outward by wrapping them around the pencil. Then form a cone out of the palm of the handprint and tape it closed to make a "lily." Attach the lily to a pipe cleaner or straw. Cut out leaves from green paper and attach them to the stem. Gather all your lilies to make a beautiful bouquet.
