December 3rd & 4th Parent Note for Sprouts
Dear Sprouts parent,
This past weekend we finished our Hand in Hand theme. The kids did a fabulous job learning the Bible verse and telling us the things they were thankful for. One little guy had our volunteer write on the back of his coloring paper what he was thankful for so his parents could see it! I absolutely love seeing our kids hide God's Word in their little hearts! So precious and life giving!
This time of year brings lots of excitement and anticipation! Your preschooler is still learning about time and can't wait until Christmas! As parents we desire that our kids understand the true meaning of Christmas and in Sprouts this month we will be learning the Christmas story starting this week with the angel coming to Mary to tell her she would give birth to Jesus.
Our Sprouts theme is Countdown to Christmas. When my kids were little we would make a paper chain with 25 links and beginning December 1 we would take one link off to help us countdown. There are many ideas to help countdown the days until Christmas and I'd love to hear how you do that!
The bottom line this month is "Jesus is God's Son!" Our Bible verse if "I bring you good news of great joy!" Luke 2:10
Please be sure to check out the Kid's Time website. It is full of information to continue learning at home. www.nhckidstime.org
Don't forget our coat drive. The need for coats in our area is great this year. Please consider going through your closet and donate any gently used coats, hats and scarves.
