Recently, as we finished our nativity study for our family Bible time, we read about and drew pictures of the flight into Egypt. Did you know that drawing is a great way for your younger (and older) kids to retain learning? Did you also know that it’s okay if your nativity study extends into January? It was almost the end of January before we finished ours!!
I couldn’t help but fall in love with my four year old’s drawing. She has a huge round-bellied camel with a human looking face. She has both Mary and Joseph on the camel’s back, and Mary’s driving! Owlet told me that Mary is yelling, “Woah!” in the picture.
She also has Jesus’s manger on the camel, tipped to the side like a car seat. If you look carefully, you’ll find that she even included straw.
Do you have a little kid who’s drawings you love? Don’t forget to take a picture or somehow find a way to hold on to the details of those drawings so that you’ll remember them 🙂
Do you have an art-related post or tutorial that you want to show off? Why don’t you come pin it on the Virtual Refrigerator? Every Thursday, I team with Every Bed of Roses, Homeschool Coffee Break, and This Day Has Great Potential to bring you a place for us to share each our children’s artwork and projects to admire and to inspire each other!
