Ezra and Nehemiah

EZRA AND NEHEMIAH

 

Home Activities:

  • Memory work: Review those 10 Commandments and begin on the books of the Old Testament.
  • Try your hand at architecture: build the city walls from various materials – paper, sugar cubes, blocks, pickles, whatever – which is strongest? Can you build it with one hand, while the other holds a spear?
  • Puzzle and coloring sheet.
  • Read the story at bedtime.

Prayer: Lord, help us to build Your kingdom, as Nehemiah and Ezra rebuilt Jerusalem.

 

Can you find the books of the Old Testament?
