I am delighted with how nicely BIBLE TIME FUN WEEKLY turned out this week. It was a lot of work!
I hope you enjoy the fun quiz about the book of Jonah.
This week is an experiment with an expanded version. I have always wanted to add a dot-to-dot feature. So I designed a simple Sword of the Spirit dot-to-dot activity. It is more like a magazine or booklet than a bulletin. I hope that the expanded version will appeal more than a simple bulletin-type printable.
There is a third coloring page this week. I hope younger children will engage with it. I know my coloring pictures can be challenging to little fingers.
I want to encourage kids and families to read the Bible daily. Starting with this issue, I began a Bible reading bookmark craft feature. Each week’s bookmark will have passages to read and mark off. I modified a three-year Bible reading plan. However, I have dedicated one day as a make-up day; so that it will be, maybe, a four-year plan.
The BREAK THE CODE puzzle can be very frustrating to create.
Some weeks I go back through my files and find a code I made before and recycle it, but I think that kids are smart and remember the codes, so I am creating a new code each week, or at least revising the code with a lot of different things. This week the code is primarily shapes and symbols. I had to redo it a few times before it was satisfactory. The verse is short, so I gave a few extra clues.
Be sure to return every week to get the latest issue for your ministry and church.
I hope this activity bulletin is a blessing to your kids.
