We, the Peterson Family:

Promise to be honest in all we do and say,

Stand tall and righteous throughout each day.

Serve around the world and in our home,

Give thanks for blessings we’ve been shown.

We’ll work as a team with joy and love,

And honor our Heavenly Father above.

Items needed this week:

Card Board or super thick paper
Assortment of beads
Old CDs
Construction Paper or Colored foam
Large Wiggly Eyes
Hot Glue
Bottles (peanut butter jars, baby food jars, etc.)
Sea Creatures

Snack Suggestion: Ocean in a Cup

• blue jello mix
• gummy fish
• crushed graham crackers
• Teddy Grahams
• gummy Lifesavers
• Sea creature crackers
• paper umbrellas
• clear plastic cups

This is the blue jello ocean cups with a little twist. Mix the jello according to the package. Pour the jello in clear plastic cups and add in gummy fish (you may want to wait until the jello starts to firm up a little so the fish don't all sink to the bottom). Let the jello set in your refrigerator. Once set, take finely crushed graham crackers and sprinkle along one side (on the top) of the jello cup to resemble a beach. Next take a Teddy Graham and insert half way in a gummy lifesavers. You may want to pre-stretch the lifesaver so the bear will fit in easily. Then, stick the feet of the bear in the jello. This should look like a bear with a float around it's waist floating in the water. Then, add a bear to the sandy area with a few starfish crackers. Last, insert the umbrella at an angle in the beach area (these are the umbrellas used for mixed drinks ...found at a party supply store). This little snack is perfect when you are studying ocean life and the kids love it!!!
