Ok , so I have been missing from cyberspace for a while.
Life has been busy but amazing…
I am teaching 1st grade full time at my son’s school and LOVING it!
I am so excited to have some time today to post about our latest Whimsy Girl Club!
And let me just tell you, you can WORK full time and still have a club…..
it is really a saving grace for your spirit and connects you with your girls!
I was sooooo tired this week and thought to myself, how am I going to put together a beautiful lesson
and be what the girls need me to be? Well, this is where God steps in and reminds you he is in charge,
and will always guide us to HIM! Just preparing for the
lesson helped me feel refreshed and focused back on HIS light.
So…I let go of the idea of making homemade goodies
and simply wrote a couple of bible verses.
I purchased cupcakes from Randalls, had the girls
add some marshmallow peeps to the tops
and showed up ready to connect with the girls.
It might have been one of the most beautiful lessons we have ever had.
The beauty about Whimsy Girl is it is such an easy and simple way to relate the bible to
our lives and allow the girls to expand their creative hearts and minds!
I also asked two moms to host and help take over the craft.
If you have a club, please ask for help. It will keep you focused and not feel overwhelmed.
Our lesson was “Walking a Faithful Life with God.” We made paper shoes and embellished them.
In our second Lesson plan book (coming soon), I have this lesson simplified for the girls.
As you know, a big part of WG is that we spread HIS love.
We will make two of these shoes and give one complete (without the embellishments) for a friend to make.
We add a prayer card in the shoe and feel good that we might be touching someone that day.
Here is what we will give to our friends….
Paper shoe completed, embellishments such as miniature paper flowers(dollar section of Michaels),
glitter is optional and a prayer card. You can also add ribbon and whatever else you desire.
Have a beautiful Sunday!
Have simple fun with peeps and sit them on a tea cup or on top of a cupcake!
