If you are new to my blog, please go HERE to catch up on what I’m providing through “DOODLE DEVOTIONS”
I have decided to refine my weekly Doodle Devotions, to make them more closely aligned with my daily focus of committing time and space for studying God’s Word, listening to the Holy Spirit, and then creating a memorial to the Lord …a remembrance of what He has revealed…A record of the place we have met ❤️
This process can help our kids learn to connect with God on a personal level, hopefully and prayerfully instilling in them, a practice for their lifetime!
I will continue to post a fun teaching video from the Crossroads Kids Club “vault” along with a complimentary coloring page, doodle 101s, and group activities and/or craft projects!
As always, my heart is to come alongside YOU as an encouragement in your walk with the Lord and journey of documenting faith!
Week 4 is all about NOAH.
Here are some Doodle 101’s to help you and your children document Noah’s Story.
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you found something helpful, and may it bless you and your family!
Since we can’t DINE together, LET’S ZINE together!
Actually, it’s pronounced ZEEN…but that doesn’t rhyme with dine:) This is a GREAT project for the weekend! Xo
I’m going to fill it with HOPE…scripture for this time that we are in.
Feel free to ask any question you might have!
5 sheets of regular copy paper
1 sheet of cardstock (or cut the side of a used cereal/cracker box)
1 sheet of Decorative Paper (not card-stock) See free printables below!
Glue Gun, glue stick, scissors, pencil
I used the video below, though I do have a few suggestions you should read before you start this project. THANK YOU Origmi4ik!
I used 4 sheets of paper for the interior pages. (You could use more, like the video, but it is a bit easier to work with fewer pages, especially for your first try at this)
Because you bind the interior pages with a glue gun, children should not attempt this alone. It is best to have an adult hot glue the interior pages together.
I used a paper cutter to speed up the process, though I did do a few books by hand. My paper cutter’s blade is dull, so the edges get a little rough at times and cutting by hand solves that problem.
4 sheets of paper cut, yield 60 interior pages.
A Few Tips learned the hard way 🤪
- Messy folds and cuts yield wonky books. Take your time folding, creasing firmly and cutting as accurately as you can.
- Use card stock for “cover pieces” but not for decorative final cover. It will be too thick to fold.
- Crease the “binding area” (the box like space created with cover) once the decorative final cover has been glued on, before you insert the interior pages.
- When glueing the interior pages to the finished cover, start with the back as seen in the video, then glue into place pushing down with the cover closed, making sure you have enough room to open the book fully. Then do the front the same way. (This one is hard to explain without going through the process! Hope my mentioning it helps!!)
Below are some FREE PRINTABLE PAPERS for you to use for covers! They are just the right size, though I do cut a little beyond the printed area for the “height” of the book to allow a little more room for folding and glueing.
Use your little mini book/journal for keeping notes, a gratitude list, food diary, etc.!
Love God, Love others, and please stay safe!
I am currently reading Beth Guckenberger’s 40 day devotional “Reckless Faith” -a 40 day journey to saying yes. Beth Guckenberger has compiled forty life-changing messages to encourage a life of reckless faith. This devotional journey walks through the adventure and joy that follows a yes…
