Day 9 of the Matthew Bible Lego Challenge! Today we dwell on the story where Jesus calms the storm. This is such a wonderful demonstration of Jesus’ power, provision, and care for us. He has authority over all of creation, takes care of our needs, and loves us whether our faith is small or great.
If you haven’t downloaded the printable yet, you want to do that right away! You can do the challenge on your own (there are 34 days total with copywork and notebooking pages) or you can use it to follow along with us here and share your creations with us on the Proverbial Homemaker Facebook page, Twitter, and Instagram!
For the 9th day of the challenge, we read Matthew 8 and Jesus calming the storm. The build challenge is to re-create Jesus calming the storm and He and his disciples in the boat. You could also have Jesus asleep inside the boat with the wind and waves battering the sides.
My kids worked together on this one to create a boat big enough for Jesus and some disciples as well as the ocean. They also decided to take it to the water and see if it floated. I included the fun little video for you below.
The copywork for the challenge is Matthew 8:26 where Jesus asks them why they were afraid, “O you of little faith.” The printable includes a drawing and writing page for those who would rather draw the scene.
We are going through 21 (out of 34) of the buils from the Matthew Lego Challenge together, following a FREE kids’ devotion on the YouVersion app (or the desktop version, Bible.com). The devotion is called Walk With Jesus: 21 Days Through Matthew and it is from What’s in the Bible?, one of our favorite family discipleship tools! Don’t forget to enter to win the What’s in the Bible DVD that goes along with the book of Matthew!
