Farm Animals: VLOG

We had the opportunity to visit some of my family who live not to far from us.  It was so wonderful to see my cousin again after several years and meet his new wife.  What a blessing to see the light of Jesus shine through a beautiful couple!  We live almost 12 hours away from the majority of our family so it is so lovely to have some family members near by.

The kids had an absolute blast!  There were several farm animals to meet including chickens, pigs, donkeys, and of course a few dogs.  The mini pig pictured above is named Mercy.  She has enjoyed many outings with the family.  If you would like to check out all Mercy's fun visit her Facebook page here:

Stop by our YouTube Channel to see all the fun the kids had during the visit.  

I created a few coloring pages for the kids and wanted to share them with you.  You can download the images and print or click the link below to download a PDF.

Color Walk: VLOG

The kids decided to go on a color walk in our backyard to search for the colors of the rainbow in their surroundings.  This is a great activity to help children practice their colors as well as practice being good observers of the world around them.  Not only did they discover colors, but they also found a caterpillar and a ladybug. 

Grace was inspired by a video her Memaw made called Our World of Colors.  You can watch that video here: 

Observation is an important life skill which informs us about objects, events, attitudes, and more using our senses.  Being  able to observe and gather information improves communication as well.  Observation is a key
skill in creativity!

I created a FREE printable to use on your color walk below.  Print the picture or download the PDF. 

Color Walks do not have to be outside.  They can happen in any environment, inside and outside.
