Poppins Book Nook: The Donkey who Carried a King with a free activity packet and a GIVEAWAY

  This month for Poppins Book Nook the theme was animals.  I chose the book The Donkey who Carried a King by RC Sproul.

     This is another excellent book by R.C. Sproul.  In it he shows how Jesus humbled himself as a servant, saving God's chosen from their sins.  
     The story brings to life a donkey named Davey who was chosen for a very special task.  He was to carried Jesus into Jerusalem.  This made Davey very proud.  He thought that he would be a special donkey now and would only be chosen to do special jobs.  Davey got very upset when he was put to work doing everyday tasks.
     Just a few days after his special task, Davey witnessed Jesus carry his own cross.  Barnabas, another donkey in the story, helped Davey to see how Jesus was a being a servant.  This helped Davey to see that he needed to do whatever job he was given with a happy heart.
     This story makes me sad and happy.  It reminds me of how God sent his precious son Jesus to earth, to live a sin free life and die on a cross so that I may go to Heaven.  It reminds me also how we are here to serve God with all of our hearts.  It also reminds me that every happy, sad, hard, and easy moment that we walk through on earth, it brings God glory and allows me to serve Him who is on most high.

I made an activity packet to go along with this book.  You can download the Activity Packet here.

Pin the tail on the donkey!!


You need 2 clothes pin, a hot glue gun, a gray, and black marker.

Have them color the clothes pins gray.  Then add eyes and a nose with the black marker.

Then attach them together with the glue gun.

Finished project!

This would be a awesome book to read around Easter time.  

Now to check out all the other blogs that are apart of the series!

FIAR-Cranberry Thanksgiving

Conner and I have really missed doing our Five in a Row book studies.    What better time than a week off to dive back into one!!  Cranberry Thanksgiving is a great resource about teaching kids not to judge a book by its cover.

Two other books we read were:
If you were at the first Thanksgiving by Anne Kamma
Give Thanks to the Lord by Karma Wilson

Cranberry Science!!

Seeing if they float!!

I let him try and bounce them into a measuring cup then he cut them up to put in our stuffing.

Our art project was to do a watercolor silhouette.  I uploaded a picture of him onto my Windows Word program, enlarged it, and then printed it out.  We glued it on a piece of watercolor paper and them the painted around it.  It peeled off very easily.

For history, we studied the Pilgrims and he did this project.

We did an online slide show or a cranberry bog.  You can find that here.
They also have a free downloadable activity pack found here.

Then we made cranberry sauce.

Put 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water in a saucepan and bring to a boil.

Add cranberries and boil until they start to pop open.  Put on low for 10 minutes.

I like mine jellied, so I used my stick blender.

Put in a dish and refrigerate for about 3 hours.

All in all, a pretty good row!
