Paring your child’s artwork with scripture is super simple,
amazingly sweet and perfect for Mother’s Day.
Back before Christmas, I took Noah to Barnes and Noble for story time. Every week after the story they get to do a little activity… usually color. This was her first story time and her first introduction to coloring. She was so cute! I wish I had taken pictures because she gets so serious when coloring. She holds the colors correctly, lays flat on her belly, and contemplates each stroke of the crayon. Even with the correct form though she was still a little unsure of what to do with the crayons so I helped her out a little bit and drew a heart on her paper so that she could see how this whole coloring thing worked.
We ended up with this little piece of paper with random strokes of color and my heart. I absolutely love it and couldn’t bare to throw it away. I have been stashing it in my night stand, procrastinating framing it. Finally, as a little Mother’s Day happy to myself I decided to find a cute frame and showcase our little piece of art. I thought it would be cool to add a Bible verse to help me with my scripture memorization and to teach with Noah. At first, I tried to find a Bible verse relating to color or art but finally decided on Deuteronomy 6:5.
Love the Lord your
God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your
Such a great reminder and an awesome commandment to share with your children. It was really easy to add to the artwork too. My first idea was to print out the scripture and apply it to Noah’s coloring but then I decided to write it directly on the sheet. Because my hand writing is less than stellar and can be hard to read I used Photoshop to layout where I wanted the verse. Then I taped the artwork onto the computer screen and traced the verse with a fine tip Sharpie (Write Out Loud). It pretty much works like a lightbox. Next, I popped it in the frame and called it a day. Like I said earlier this was a super easy project but an excellent way to show off your children’s first (100th) artwork. I can’t help but think of it as a little happy for myself. Do you have any DIY projects planned for Mother’s Day? Can you believe Mother’s Day is almost here? I’m still in shock that it is already May!
