E is for Esther

I’m so thrilled to be a part of the A-Z Bible series! I can say without a doubt that the Bible is my favorite book in the world and I love sharing it with my kids. The story of Esther is one of my favorites, so naturally it is a favorite for my kids too.

We had a lot of fun talking about the story of Esther while we worked our way through these fun activities.

Because my three older children know the story of Esther from Bible studies, Sunday school and listening to their daddy preach, I decided to check how much they really knew and understood from the story.

While she decorated her crown, Rissa, my 9 year old, told me everything. Detail for detail. Didn’t miss a thing.

This may have been because they have watched the Esther Veggie Tales video a few too many times. But at least she told me the real story and not the veggie version.

She even understood that Esther was probably nervous talking to the king even though she was doing a very brave thing.

That was a good thing for Rissa to recognize because she takes pride in being a very brave girl, but she gets nervous talking in front of people.

Emma and Rissa worked hard at creating a banquet scene using the Esther picture and the food templates.

Jaida, my 6 year old, just wanted to color Esther. Well, she wanted her laminated and cut out too, so that she could play pretend with her.

Jaida also worked on her handwriting using the Bible verse page.

And the one activity that we didn’t get to because it was for Shiloh, my 3 year old, and she was in desperate need of a nap. E is for Esther.

Shiloh did think that her crown was super cool and she told me that she a queen. Since she doesn’t say a lot of words I thought that it was pretty awesome that she caught on to that word.
She also thought that it was really fun to do races across the school room with her crown on. Maybe it gave her super speed or something.
