A Reason to Craft

I love my calling. I get to work with the 4 year olds in Primary. Last week our lesson was, "I am a Child of God." I was searching the Internet for some lesson helps and stumbled on this cute idea on I am lucky enough to have a handy husband who loves to work with wood. He was willing to cut out the wood blocks for me. I did the initial sanding. We painted them and then added the names and the lettering over top that says, I am a Child of God. I think they turned out great. The kids loved them. The lesson went great.
It turned out to be Ward Conference and I had a Stake visitor in my class. The kids behaved very well. The only problem is, they are convinced they lived in Florida before they were born. I think this will be the focus of our lesson for the next couple of weeks.

I told Shane I could also think of a few nieces and nephews that needed these. We will see what happens.
