Today we are working on our fine-motor skills while making giving some sweet little sheep some wool. Just like God provides warm coats for real sheep, you will guide your preschooler to wrap yarn around cardboard forms to give them colorful wooly coats. The different colors and textures of the yarn will give your child a wonderful sensory rich experience while increasing their hand-eye and fine motor coordination.
Start by cutting some cardboard into oval shapes, making one end slightly skinnier for the nose. Color the nose black with a permanent marker or some acrylic paint. Clip two wooden clothespins to each cardboard shape. Ours were left over from another activity and were colored with liquid watercolor. Plain wood ones would be just as darling, and would give you a more natural look. We offered some odds and ends of different yarns to wrap, and a pair of scissors. These will make a nice little flock to graze at your Christmas table!
The act of God seeing means God acts. God’s observing means He always serves. This is the thing: your God’s constant vision is your constant provision.
You don’t need to climb mountains named “I Will Perform.”
You don’t need to climb mountains named “I Will Produce.”
Every mountain that every Christian ever faces, the Lord levels with sufficient grace: The Lord Will Provide.
