Do you ever need a quick and easy activity for the children to do that has minimal preparation and no mess? Maybe you need a filler activity to have on hand for children who finish all their craft early or something to do for the children who arrive at your club on time – while you wait for the few who are always a bit late? maybe you would like something for your own children to do during the Sunday sermon?
These two books provide 52 photocopiable sheets of activities that only require a pencil/pen and a bible (NIV version is used here)
‘Little hands Fold and Do’ is for 4-7 year olds and ‘Fold and Do’ is for 7-10 year olds. They are written by Carla Williams, Illustrated by Richard M Heroldt and Becky Radtke and published by Concordia Publishing House.
The ‘fold’ part of the title refers to the fact that each worksheet is two sided and folded in half. The activities include tracing, joining up items, word searches, dot to dot, odd one out and lots of other activities.
Each worksheet focus’ on a different subject – these include Christmas, Easter, talking to God, the parables – 52 in all. Both books cover the same topic but at a different level.
Because the books are from the US they do include something for President’s day, Memorial Day, National Day of Prayer and valentines but they focus on truths from the Bible rather than how these days are kept so still useful if not in the US. The spelling is American too but loads of books use american spelling so I’m happy to overlook it!
I bought one of the books through Amazon – but be careful as they sent me the wrong one at first – they didn’t seem aware that there were two different books so the picture and description didn’t match the sent item. Abebooks did a much better job.
