Jonah and the Whale

Recently we did a family Bible study on Jonah and the whale. Robby explained how the whale ate Jonah, so Jonah was in the whale's tummy. Catherine turned and asked me "Just like when I was in your tummy?" Not knowing how to respond, I said "Sort of." She asked the next logical question: "Why did you eat me, Mommy?" Trying to be honest, but vague, I replied "I didn't eat you, sweetie. You started in my tummy."

So our craft for the Jonah and the Whale story was guided painting. Each girl was given the same worksheet and painted the colors that I told them. They love painting, so this worked out well.
