5 Pigs So Squeaky Clean Quiet Book Page


I LOVE this flannel board story and decided it would make a super fun quiet book page!  My youngest son and I will often lay in bed at night and sing songs together and he is quite fond of "the pig song".

Here is my interpretation:

On the left side is the bathtub (full of pigs) with vinyl and sequin bubbles to count.
On the right side is the pig pen with muddy pockets for the pigs to squish around in.


The pigs are clean on one side and dirty (with brown acrylic paint) on the other.


After the pigs get dirty, they can be soaped off in the tub and turn around to the clean side again!

I am hoping to have the pattern for this page up very soon!  Keep checking back!

Sparks Tic Tac Toe

I really like having easy games that my Sparks can pull out after they are done with verses or while they are waiting for their parents to pick them up. This is a super simple little Spark's themed tic tac toe that I made.

Rocket and UFO Space Pages


I revamped my space page a little bit to make it bigger and add a rocket ship, astronaut, and stars to count to the basic UFO/alien page.  I really love how it turned out!  These are actually the second batch of aliens I made because my three year old absconded with the first set :)





I finished the pages in black satin with a star overlay.  Such a simple but super fun space set!

Itsy Bitsy Spider & Miss Muffet Quiet Book Pages

So I recently finished a Little Miss Muffet & the Itsy Bitsy Spider 2 page spread.  I am really happy with how it turned out!



 I finished the pages in this sweet butterfly and flower print I have left over from my wedding!  It just goes perfectly with the theme.

Sparks Key Verse Easter Egg Hunt

I wanted to do a fun Easter egg type hunt with my Sparks, but I knew the weather wouldn't cooperate for an outdoor hunt and my space indoors was limited to our meeting room which doesn't have a whole lot of hiding spots.  I also didn't really want to stuff a whole bunch of eggs.  So here is my creative solution!

There were 28 eggs for each team, printed on colored cardstock so it was clear whose eggs belonged to whom.  You could only search for YOUR team's color.  I taped the eggs all over the room; on the ceiling, under tables, on the wall, on the trashcan, etc.  After each team found all 28 eggs they had to assemble them into the verse and tape it on a posterboard.  Then they could decorate the poster with stickers.  It was a great challenge for this age and some of the teams were quite competitive!
Here is the link for the egg/verse template to print onto colored paper/cardstock.  I might laminate the eggs this year so I can use them again year after year.
