Our Pirate Family

This week you will make a pirate from paper towel tubes cut in different heights. Let each member of the family make a pirate version of themselves and talk about how each of them is a part of God's family. 

Gather supplies. You will need several paper towel and toilet paper rolls (enough to be your 
whole family), felt, googly eyes, construction paper, scissors, glue, markers. (You can use whatever 
supplies you have around your house to make the pirates!) We made one as an example to show you how to do it! 

Cut a t-shirt out of any color felt, fabric or construction paper. 

Out of black construction paper, cut out a hat and draw a pirate emblem 
on it with white crayon. 

Draw a face on the toilet paper tube. Use googly eyes, etc. for whatever you want your face to 
look like! Let each child make a pirate that looks like them! Parents make one, too, so you have one of each family member. 

Finished pirate.

God Loves Me All the Time!

Gather supplies. You will need a paper plate, a marker, glue and some 
magazines, grocery flyers, or anything you can find to cut numbers off of! 

Write numbers on a paper plate to resemble a clock. 

Go on a number hunt around your house and have your child find 
numbers 1-12. Glue the numbers to the paper plate. (you could even have them glue 
pictures of things you do at different times of the day instead of the number…ex. 
12:00 – a picture of kids eating lunch)
