I think it is essential to teach our children life skills. Our children should know what to do if they become lost or if they have lost those who are with them. We love the outdoors and spend many of our weekends hiking. My husband was in Search and Rescue a few years ago and learned valuable life skills… one of these is… Tracking footprints.
Iron on footprints: What you need: sandpaper, crayons, piece of cloth or shirt, and iron.
Sponge animal prints: What you need: sponges, scissors, paint, cardboard, and hot glue.
Foot prints turned into arts: Warning…. this may make your children laugh! What you need: your Childs foot, cotton balls, paper, paint, and markers or crayons.
Use cotton balls and apply paint onto your child’s foot. This usually tickles. We had a fun time. Press their foot gently onto paper. Let the paint dry. Use markers or crayons and have your child draw whatever he or she wants to.
Bible Lesson: This is a great time to teach your child about the Prodigal son. Let your child know that if they loose their way that God is only a prayer away. Check out my post about the Prodigal son.
