For several weeks my family and I have been working our way through The Birth of Jesus by Grapevine Studies. We love reading the history of Christmas verse by verse and drawing pictures to help us remember the key points.
As with our Esther study, the girls look forward to sitting down and doing the lessons together. (My nine-year-old still mourns the fact that Esther is over and is already asking which study we’re going to do when this one is over!) The multi-sensory teaching style of these studies is a great way to help children remember what they’re studying in the Bible, and it’s especially critical for my struggling learner.
The Birth of Jesus has helped us to keep our focus on Christ during this busy time of year by making us slow down and really think about the significance of Christ’s birth. I have even been reminded of parts of the history that I had forgotten!
In addition to learning so much from the study of God’s Word, we have also had our moments of fun, like when my husband did the drawing that made King Herod look like he was about to execute a martial arts move:
This is what Grapevine Studies look like at our house:
