Christmas bible verse game your kids will love

Limited time Christmas Bible game Freebie

In keeping with my unofficial theme this month, keeping Christ at the center of Christmas, I’m sharing something to help you do just that! I’ve made a Christmas Bible Game and I’m offering it as a limited time subscriber freebie this week.  It’s a verse memorization game using verses from the nativity story.  There are also coloring pages, pictures, and verse cards.

Previously, in Applied Behavioral Analysis, my son needed to memorize some characters in a story.  Each character’s name and characteristics were meant to help he and I identify what was going on with him in the moment, in a way we both understood.  He and his ABA provider memorized all these things through scavenger hunts.  For each character, he found he had to name them.  Then, in subsequent rounds, he would have to name what their struggle was, and finally, they got down to recalling coping strategies.   It was brilliant!  He learned so much, so fast!  I thought this was a perfect method to apply to scripture memorization.

Made with Love

Snow’s about ready to fall in the Northern hemisphere, and what will you be doing when it does?

Sitting by a crackling fire… a hot cup of coffee nearby… maybe some soft yarn and smooth needles in your lap?  Trying to relax while the kids are feeling restless? 😉

Sounds like you’re ready for something soothing for you, and something to keep their hands busy! If you’ve been on the run all summer and fall, it’s about time for your schedule to slow down just a bit… which means you’ll be reaching for your next handmade project.  This is also a great time to teach your kids how to do some handcrafting too!  It’s a great and inexpensive way to spend quality time together while also getting some presents made.

4 important reasons your child should know they’re autistic

Have you ever wondered when to tell your child about their autism?

Sometimes parents have a choice about when to tell the kids about their disability or disorder.  Other times, it’s really obvious.  If they’re in a wheelchair that’s not something you can hide; or anything else like that for that matter.  But when it comes to some neurological disorders, that’s really easy to hide.  It’s not just autism obviously, but ADHD, OCD, you name it.

My experience not knowing…

I grew up without any official diagnosis of anything. I was always just a quirky kid.  Some people love me for it, others were frustrated by it.  I’m betting it depended more on the moment than the person. I always struggled with friendships and life in general and it was devastating at times.

$10 Dollar calm down box from dollar tree

Do you have a calm down box?

Our ABA practitioner suggested we make a calm down box a while ago.  I always meant to, but never got around to it because… life.  We started having issues at church, and a calm down box became an obvious answer.  Until now, I’ve had a make-shift Ziploc bag of whatever.  With my “Things to know about” sheet.
