Day 4 of the Matthew Bible Lego Challenge! Today is about the baptism of Jesus, although my son chose to build a representation of the trinity instead of the actual baptism scene (he did that for Day 3: John the Baptist).
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 4th day of the challenge, we are looking at Matthew 3:13-17 and the baptism of Jesus, where the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are clearly represented. Of course, you are welcome to do the baptism scene or some other part of the story.
For the build challenge, my son chose to make a triangle (no easy task, according to him) and then put something to show each part of the trinity at the corners. He put a “G” for God, an “S” for the Holy Spirit, and his stand-by Jesus figurine (storm trooper, for some reason) for the Son!
The copywork for the challenge is Matthew 3:17, where the voice of God says “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” The printable includes a drawing and writing page for those who would rather draw the scene.
This was one of those challenges where I had to really just let my son do his thing and not try to direct him. Because it doesn’t have to be Pinterest-perfect, my friends! It just has to be from his own creativity. Of course, I was pleased that he remembered so much from out Sound Words lessons about the trinity.
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!
