For all the things that were written aforetime were written for our instruction, that through our endurance and through the comfort from the Scriptures we might have hope.
**Note – It is hard for us to divide ancient history or other subjects as if they should be taught separately from the Bible. However, because we need organization as well, we have created this page to place some of our items. But there are items placed elsewhere on our site with our other units. Use the mini index below to find what you need. Again, use this page and the index to help you navigate our site for other Bible based notebook pages or minibooks.

Yearly Bible Reading
One of our year end parties was a Bible character party. Most of the moms either sewed or put together these outfits. Walmart has a pattern Several of our girls were Pharoah’s daughter…LOL…. We have Miriam holding the basket of Moses. We have an Israelite on a journey and an Aaron with his staff. We have two King Solomons and one King David with the crowns. Can you see the Sarah in the background with the grey wig? She has the blue drape over her head. So creative by one of the moms.
My oldest in the red was King Solomon, the middle guy with the beard is King Ahasuerus from Esther and the youngest is King David. The costumes were sewn using McCall’s Easy to Sew Pattern 2340 from Walmart. The green cape on my youngest was an old velvet green housecoat..lol. The rest of the material was all bought at Walmart.
