Welcome to Penny Pinching Mom

Throughout this blog, you will find meal plans, date night ideas, daily routines, preschool activities, natural cleaning products, crafting and so much more. Essentially, I want to share how I make "everyday tasks" into something to look forward to - except for mopping floors, you're on your own for that one!

Easter {Sunday School Unit}

Thanks to Pinterest, I had so many Easter ideas I wanted to incorporate!  Alas, you can only cram so many projects into one Sunday morning.  I know the order of the story is a little messed up but I really wanted the Palm Sunday lesson to fall on Palm Sunday... The printable story was found at DLTK.  I will also add a link to the song Jesus Wants me for a Sunbeam, in case you don't know the tune.  As always, I am not very good at keeping track of where I have found all my resources.  All images were copied from Google searched and I created the Take Home Sheets.  There aren't a lot of printable for this unit. On another note, if you are on Pinterest, I have a board that is dedicated to Sunday School Resources.

We split the story into 3 weeks:
Week one: The last supper and washing feet
Week two: Palm Sunday
Week three: Jesus is risen


The last supper
Palm Sunday
Jesus is risen

Crafts, Activities and Stories:

He is risen craft
Words for He is risen craft

Take home sheets:

I also wanted to include a couple super cool Easter projects that I really wanted to do but didn't get a chance:

Right now, we are working through a short unit on the life of Moses.  We completed 10 weeks of the 10 commandments and the children seemed to be quite interested in Moses.  I now wish that we had planned it so we did an overview of Moses' life and then a closer look at each commandment but this way should work too.

After Moses we are jumping into a pretty huge project.  We are going to do 3 months of "Bible Legends" with trading cards and all!

Each week we will do an overview of important people throughout the Bible.  We will print out these trading cards and each child will build a little collection of Bible Legends to take home! I am actually quite stoked about this one!

The only thing I have yet to figure out is how to store all these trading cards...
We have children that come and go and children that are regular attenders.  I am thinking of creating a little box or something for each child and it could stay in the Jr. Kid's Church Room but then they may loose some of the excitement...  I also haven't figured out exactly how we will "trade" cards.  I thought a "trading party" would be in order but not sure how that will look.  Any suggestions?
