As part of our new morning routine, I've put together a "Bible Basket." I'm on the lookout for another name for it, but that's all I've come up with so far. The purpose is for the kids to develop their own personal, quiet time with the Lord.
I do my own devotional time in the mornings. The original intention was to have it done before the children wake up. However, lately, I've been having some early risers. Many times, I've sent them back to bed, but I do not feel right about that. It could be that they're not needing as much sleep right now. Also, I'd love for them to be able to see me spending time with the Lord as well. So, in came the Bible Basket. Now, if they wake up early, they can use the things in their basket while I do my Bible study.
This week, we are learning about Creation during our Bible time. So, in the basket, I've put one of their children's Bibles, the felt Creation pieces, and a children's worship cd. I plan on switching the pieces out at least every week with every new story. Sometimes, I may switch them out more frequently with something new to go with the story. This was our first morning using it. So far, it has worked wonderfully!
