About the Movie: 

Drac’s pack is back for an all-new monster comedy adventure in Sony Pictures Animation’s Hotel Transylvania 2! Everything seems to be changing for the better at Hotel Transylvania… Dracula’s rigid monster-only hotel policy has finally relaxed, opening up its doors to human guests. But behind closed coffins, Drac is worried that his adorable half-human, half-vampire grandson, Dennis, isn’t showing signs of being a vampire. So while Mavis is busy visiting her human in-laws with Johnny – and in for a major cultural shock of her own – “Vampa” Drac enlists his friends Frank, Murray, Wayne and Griffin to put Dennis through a “monster-in-training” boot camp. But little do they know that Drac’s grumpy and very old, old, old school dad Vlad is about to pay a family visit to the hotel. And when Vlad finds out that his great-grandson is not a pure blood – and humans are now welcome at Hotel Transylvania – things are going to get batty!

Absolutely Free Gospel Plane: Get Yours Before they are Gone!

Absolutely Free Gospel Plane: Get Yours Before they are Gone!This gospel plane is absolutely adorable and you can print it out for free!  (Love that as well!) Paper airplanes and fold up notes seem to be an obsession from a young age. I can remember the little boys folding their Sunday school lessons up into paper airplanes before class was even over, which is so funny because to this day it drives me crazy when there are creases in paper.  I would always keep mine perfectly straight. lol

Let the Little Children Come fixed that problem by making a Sunday school lesson that’s is meant to be folded into an airplane!  It both amuses me and speaks to me, I don’t know why I never thought of this whenever I taught Sunday School.  Of course, I taught the younger children so they weren’t making airplanes yet, just balls of paper!

On more than one occasion, I have blogged about how much I love their products, like their Halloween tract, my color Inspiration post,  wordless books, and this Plane is no different!  The paper airplanes are such a great idea and such a wonderful teaching tool!  It also goes beyond teaching the Word and helps to exercise the skill and dexterity with hands that the children are learning as they grow and develop.

I was racking my brain trying to think of lessons that go along with airplanes in the Bible and it occurred to me, one of the best lessons might be about how the bird scouted out the land when Noah was sailing.  Then there are lessons that can be taught about how, from an airplane, it’s difficult to see what’s going on on the land but God can see everything because He is everywhere and knows everything!  I’m equally sure that you can come up with even more lessons to utilize them!  I hope that you’ll come back and share your thoughts and ideas!

Things to Draw and Color

Things to Draw and Color:  

The Natural Development in Childhood

5From an early stage children express an increased desire to draw, color and simply to put pen to paper in one from or another. Some think this fact is due to bright colors that have an immense impact to a young mind, others, to the desire of replicating actions grown-ups undertake. Whatever the reason, it has been proven scientifically that drawing and coloring plays a vital role in the early development of the cognitive and emotional aspects of children, increasing mobility, exciting creativity and imagination, teaching responsibility and empowering personality expression and free will.

Scribbling as it is known represents the first depictions a child undertakes on a blank paper. The will 1 to represent the surrounding environment as it is understood and seen by the young mind lies in each and every one of us. Some express an early reflection of what is considered to be talent, a clever method of associating still objects with movement, an early understanding and perception of proportions and perspectives, of scale, size, light and shadow. Such talent and imagination requires practice under professional guidance, constant positive feedback and encouragement. It is the early years that will form the base for future development.

4The scribbling incipient phase is followed by the grasping of shapes and their association, stage reflected in what is considered the primary raw form or interpretation and conceptualization. Even if the actual conceptualized drawing comes in much later after practice and learning, the unconscious form will reflect a future easiness of assimilating techniques and practices. Color comes in now in basic tones and evolves into different mixtures, hues, gradient, shadows and lights. Coloring books represent essential materials required to teach discipline as well as to stimulate creativity and imagination. Even though respecting the imposed limits will teach responsibility, never impose creativity to a young mind, never limit their imagination. So what if the sky is red and leaves are not green? Childhood is the perfect medium to experiment and imagine.

3The human body as it is understood by the child comes into focus in family portraits and illustrations, firstly formed from basic line and shapes and later on gaining proportions and perspective. Wrist control has now improved, discipline is required and accepted and real-life depictions take the place of imaginative thinking. It is a rather sad stage but one that expresses a real, essential understanding of the surrounding world and medium. From here on, professional assistance might be required if a disposition for this field is shown but aid and encouragement from the parents is crucial. Keep boosting confidence, appreciate even the slightest creation, do not compare and contrast between siblings to avoid negative competitiveness and keep an open mind regarding personal taste and personality expression, every single child is unique in its own particular way.

2Make sure you provide the basic pen and white paper from the start and advance with the art materials as things progress and interest is expressed. Encourage the study of various techniques before the child desires to focus on one or another and associate drawing and coloring with music for increased productivity and better brain development.

In the end we would like to invite you to immerse yourself into the colorful world of cartoons and to remember what it felt to be a child once again and enjoy the simple act of coloring.
