I am signed up for Tony Kummer's newsletter with his MINISTRY TO CHILDREN blogsite. Last week I watched a video he linked to showing how to make a Heart-pocket for a Sunday School project. Well, I don't have a children's Sunday School class to teach. But I have two very eager project-loving granddaughters who flat-out love it when I sit and make something--anything--with them. So....Wednesday night our electricity went out again due to our ice-storm, and I ended up spending Thursday with the girls. They don't have electricity either. But, they do have a fireplace to keep us toasty warm. While their mother did office-work for her hubby's construction business, (and later ran errands), Haylee, Kinsey and I made heart-pockets. They turned out really cute and we had a blast making them. We did a few extra things with ours that the video didn't show, but to see a great step-by-step instructional presentation, just go HERE. MORE PHOTOS OF OUR CREATIONS BELOW:
Kinsey learns to punch holes. We used the cutouts to decorate her pocket. Kinsey pats her hearts on hearts to make them stick good with the glue stick she just used.
We stuck magnetic strip to the back of the heart pockets and put them on the fridge. Now, we will write Bible verses on hearts and stick them inside the pockets.
SUCH FUN when you don't have electricity. Don't forget to check out Tony's site above... and articles below.
