Each day, find Bible verses with reflections on them, a full-color ornament to cut out for your Jesse Tree, and an “action point” to put more of Christ’s love into practice.

3.3 Preschool and Kindergarten: How to Play Marbles

Marbles is a great, old-fashioned game that does not require batteries or electricity, and also has many variations. Games such as this teach fine-motor skills, and the importance of taking turns, following rules, and picking up (prevents falls, loss, and younger siblings getting them into their mouths!).

3.4 Science: Space Station Spotter

NASA has just initiated a new, free service that notifies you when the International Space Station (ISS) passes overhead in the mornings and evenings. Choose to receive either an e-mail or text message when a good opportunity to see the ISS occurs (not the hard-to-spot passes)–it’s great for kids.
