Reply to "Add your favorite Art Activity here!"

For the month of February, we created a rotation of lessons about "Love."  Loving God with everything you have, and loving your neighbor as yourself.

We used the same memory verse, but each workshop focused on a different aspect of the verse. In the Art Workshop, we focused on remembering to love God and express our love in prayer and action. To remember these ideas each day, we had the kids make Mezuzahs with homemade air dry clay.

A Mezuzah is a small Jewish prayer box with a Bible verse inside it. The mezuzah attaches to your doorway. It is a reminder there that as you go out into the world to remember the verse (about love, in this case). 

Google "mezuzah crafts for kids" and you'll see many options, including this clay mezuzah you can make out of air-clay and can paint it.  Notice that their mezuzahs are open at the top so you can slip in and take out the Bible verse scroll.  Ours were decorated to match our story theme.

Editor's Note: You can also buy plastic mezuzah's to decorate. Google  "Plastic Mezuzah Cases For Decoration"
This lesson on the Greatest Commandment makes mezuzahs from Sculpey™ clay.
