Suggested Activities:

• Bible:
- ABCJLM Bible Workbook ABCJLM Bible Coloring Sheets: Cut small squares of white, yellow, and purple tissue paper.  Glue on the Jesus is Alive worksheet.  

- Make a handprint butterfly by painting the palms of the child's hands.  On a piece of construction paper, stamp the hands down (thumbs down, fingers pointing in opposite directions, handprints touching).  Clean off both hands.  Painting only the index finger black, stamp down the center of the handprints to make the butterfly's body.  Add googly eyes and two antennas.  Add the title "Jesus is Alive!"

• Colors:
- Shine a flashlight on white, yellow, and purple objects around the house.  Depending on the development of the child, it may be best to do a single color at a time.

• Shape:
Outline the Heart and Rectangle worksheet with glue and then white marshmallows.

• Self-care and Manners:
The hardest thing about clearing off the table is not getting crumbs and stickiness everywhere.  Teach the child to carry the dish or plate flat and not to touch the dirty part of the utensils.  Have a designated place for the child to set items (in the dishwasher, in the sink, or on the counter).


• Book of the Week:
- Have a Red Day: wear red, eat red foods, color with red (click for red activities)
- Watch Clifford on TV or on the internet

• Fine Motor Skill:
scissors Give your child a pair of children's safety scissors and pages from an old magazine.  Let them cut, cut, cut.  They may want to cut out pictures of items they want or like.  This will make a mess; but nothing that a broom and dustpan can't handle! Check out Teaching How to Use Scissors for ideas.

• Gross Motor Skill:
Play "Simon Says" using different gross motor movements and activities
