Bath Finger Puppets

As it is the summer school holidays here in England I have been doing loads to try and keep the kids busy and to keep myself sane. This last week we made bath finger puppets. They were fun and easy to make and the kids spent an hour in the bath tub afterwards which means another hour of no fighting and happiness, which makes one mommy very happy.

All you will need is a rubber glove for each child and some permanent markers.
Let the children draw people or faces on each finger. When they have finished cut the fingers off the glove.

Thats it. Five cute bath finger puppets.

The Lord Invites ALL To Come Unto Him

He did not limit or say “all who are perfect come unto me” or just the rich, or just the poor, or just the healthy, or those without sin, or those who pray the longest, or just the sick. His invitation is to all: “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest,” comfort, peace; “for my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

His plea to all is to love God, love His children, keep His commandments, and believe that Jesus is the Christ, born of God.

Collision Of Worlds

Because my husband is British and I am American when we heard this song at the end of Cars 2 it made us both smile. This song is us. In our home I say American words and he and our children all use the British words. Saying that I do use a lot of British words now :) I hope this makes you smile and that your Friday is LOVELY!

Read Cookies For Charlie - Friend July 2011

For our Activity we made Chocolate Chip Cookies (One of our Favorites) and took it to a sister in our ward who has been unwell for a little while. This was a great lesson in Charity for the children.
