Day 13 of the Matthew Bible Lego Challenge! Jesus Feeds the 5,000. This is one of my kids’ favorite stories because it involves the faithful donation of a child. Jesus takes the meager loaves and fishes and does the miraculous with it.

I admit, it’s one of my favorite stories as well. Even something as simple as teaching our children the Bible through simple projects like Lego build challenges can plant seeds that God does miraculous things with. He can take our meager offerings and feed whomever He chooses with it, all for His glory. 

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 pageTwitter, and Instagram!

For the 13th day of the challenge, we read all of Matthew 14, focusing on Jesus feeding the 5,000. The build challenge is re-create the scene or to build loaves and fishes. Since the latter challenge seemed harder than he wanted, my son chose to build the scene. He did a great job!

The copywork for the challenge is Matthew 14:20 – that they ate and were satisfied. The printable includes a drawing and writing page for those who would rather draw the scene.
