Joy {Free Printable Verse for Your Family}

Joy is one of those amazing gifts that is available all the time, in any circumstance.

It can be tough to remember that when you’re drowning in to-do lists, mourning a loss, struggling with change, or more.

But joy is available through God and because of His love and because we turn to Him.

As with most truths, memorizing helps store it in my heart to pull up at the time I might need it most.

I created a simple printable (or desktop image) of the one of joy verses we’ve studied in our fellowship. This printable is in the NIrV translation so your kids can memorize with you.

Gracious Words {Free Verse Printable for Your Family}

Our children’s fellowship recently looked at using “gracious words” whether talking with someone with love or with someone we’re having a hard getting along with.

Using gracious words in all situations can be a struggle for all of us – kids and adults.

I’ve personally found that whenever I memorize Scripture, those truths really do stick in my heart and mind longer. They resurface at needed times much more easily.

I created a simple printable (or desktop image) of the one of “gracious words” verses we’re working on memorizing. This printable is in the NIrV translation so your kids can memorize with you.

(For our preschoolers, we’re memorizing just the first sentence.)

Learning Nutrition Label Comparison

Your kids come running in after enjoying some nature study time outside, and they’re ready for a snack.

You offer oranges or carrot sticks.

One child pipes up saying he wants cookies!

How do you help them really understand what healthy food options are and why we should eat healthy most of the time? Learning Nutrition Labels

Join me over at The Homeschool Scientist today with a (free printable!) nutrition label comparison activity, plus an active game you can play with those labels.

These activities foster thinking about:

  • What’s in nutrition labels?
  • Why is this information important?
  • What do you do with that information?
  • How do nutrition labels help you and your kids make healthier choices?

Let me know how your family reads nutrition labels over at The Homeschool Scientist!

Isaiah 55:8-9 image {free image/printable at undergodsmightyhand.com}

Drink Deeper {A Study on Isaiah 55}

Over at Do Not Depart this month, we’re studying Isaiah 55 deeper. Many folks have been memorizing Isaiah 55 this year with HideHisWord and Do Not Depart. With it on our brains and hearts, we decided to dive deeper and drink of the overflowing wisdom found within it.Drink Deeper {Isaiah 55 study at DoNotDepart.com}

Click here to catch up on the Drink Deeper {Isaiah 55 study} posts up so far.

In preparation for my post later in the month, I’m rereading Isaiah 55 several times this week. All the verses warrant extra study, but Isaiah 55:8-9 catch my attention at every read through:

For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.

These verses remind me of my smallness. In a good way. They remind me of His higher power. My shoulders ease as I remember I don’t have to bear the weight of all the world. God is here. I can let go of my lack of understanding and instead trust.

It’s all so easy to say, yet so much harder to do. But every time I read these verses, I remember again.

I made an image to help remind me of these verses and their impact. The background phrases in this image are from verse 6 before it.

Photobooth Birthday Party Activities {plus free printables!}

If you’ve read here for a while, you might remember that, while I used to think themed birthday parties could be overkill, as I began planning parties for my kids, I found I love coming up with ideas my kids also love.

My boy is a born button-pusher. When he’s allowed to, he loves to get his hands on anything digital and just push buttons until he figures it out (which he usually does, so far!).

He also loves photos—of himself, of family, of friends, of much!

We thought this year might be a good time to get him a kids’ digital camera. (I never would’ve considered this without my brother sharing about it. Who knew they were so reasonably priced and, thankfully, hardy?!)

And what better birthday party theme to go with a camera than a Photobooth Birthday Party!

Photobooth Birthday Party Activities

We set up a snack area.

My fella is practicing pre-handwriting skills by drawing smiley faces and the beginnings of stick figures, so my husband made a stick figure “family photo” on the birthday cake.  We try to keep snacks easy-to-grab and relatively healthy.

We set up a very simple photobooth area with a sheet hanging over our mantle.

The photobooth props sat in a basket right beside the designated area.

If we did this again, we’d change a couple things. My husband wanted to rig up some awesome setup where people could place their cameras to take a photo, but we decided to go the simple route for preschoolers (and ran out of time). I also hung up a “Happy Birthday” banner in the photo area after I took this photo.

We kept it simple with just two main activities. In our invitation, we asked party attendees to bring their cameras, too, whether it was a kid-specific camera or one a parent could help the kids operate. Both activities explained below used cameras.

Photobooth Fun!

I found a few great photobooth prop printable sets for free! (Thank you, Pinterest!) I used some of the props from Oh Happy Day’s sets (Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3), and a few fall-themed props from the Thanksgiving printable set from The Dating Divas.

I went the simple route of just printing the props out on cardstock, then taping them to small craft sticks/wooden stirrers. This worked well for our party, and most of them lasted so we can use them again in the future! If you really want them to last, you can read Oh Happy Day’s directions for very sturdy props (see the links above).

Birthday Photo Scavenger Hunt

The second activity took just a little bit of instruction, but then worked beautifully! We had a variety of ages in attendance, so the bigger siblings helped the little kids with their scavenger hunts.

Each pair of children got a Happy Birthday Photo Scavenger Hunt checklist. The list had eight things to find around the house and take a photo of with their camera! To make it include a dose of problem solving for the preschoolers, some of the items listed were worded generally, like “find something that spins,” or within a category, “find a fruit.”

Ugh, sorry for the dark lighting on this photo.

The kids did great, and I loved seeing the big kids help out the littler ones. And the littles loved taking photos of their findings to “check off” the list! We played for about 20-30 minutes.

We wrapped up with cake, fruit, and more photobooth fun!
