Mystery of History Creation Lesson: Blue Monday
Today for Blue Monday over at Smiling Sally's blog lots of talented bloggers are writing about their beloved blue "stuff"!
I'm joining in the fun by featuring a series of artwork that my kids did one day during our Mystery of History lesson on creation. All were done on blue construction paper.
Each child was responsible for creating a picture for one day of creation. Selah, age 3, did Day 1 (above). She's got some black to represent darkness and some sunshines to represent light. Jesus is featured there as well because He was there too!
Lynzie, 10, got two days since we had more days than artists---her picture shows Day 2 and Day 3:
Cainan, 5, did Day 4:
He's got a sun, moon, and stars in there!
Elisha, age 6, took Day 5:
He was feeling a little unsure of his birds but we all assured him they were great!
And finally, Michael, age 8, did Day 6:
Michael was uncomfortable depicting Adam and Eve without clothing so he decided to dress them! He's got several cute animals there, including a horse, a flamingo, a frog?, a monkey and a tiger!
I told the kids that I'd do Day 7 but, unfortunately, have been too busy with new baby to get to it yet! I have, instead, acted out that lovely day of rest with many naps since! I also blogged about rest here!
Hope you all have a great and restful Blue Monday! Visit Smiling Sally to see more participants!
