God’s Little Explorers Week 8
- Theme: ”q” is for Quail (Birds)
- Bible Story: Moses, Manna, and Quail (God Provides)
- Bible Verse: “And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.” Phillipians 4:19
- Letter: q
- Number: 3
Here are a few activities we did:
Our Bible story was about God providing the manna and quail for the Israelites, and I had forgotten how much fun it is to do simple step-by-step drawings with the girls, so we drew this quail. Now my youngest daughter is drawing them all the time! As long as you don’t make fun of me (I don’t profess to be an artist!!), feel free to try out my step-by-step instructions in the download. :)
We painted the lowercase letter q with Q-tips.
We played a Letter Match Scavenger Hunt.
We made a “bird’s nest” snack. Well, since we’re not eating grains, technically I just made the above piece of bread to show you how it looks. We did our adapted version below…
I just wrapped a piece of bacon in a circle and plopped the egg inside.
We cut out “feathers” from construction paper (I ran out of craft feathers) and glued them around the number three.
In case you missed it, I do have some printable number rhymes to help you teach your child number formation.
We added a “q is for Quail” drawing to our Treasure Map!
Finally, we went on a nature walk and listened for birds. We also went to a local park and fed the geese and ducks!
A few other ideas:
Make a pine cone bird feeder.
Try an “Eat Like a Bird” experiment.
Figure out what shape is best for a nest.
Make a handprint bird painting.
