Wisdom Search

Growing up we used to do "wisdom searches" with donuts. As we studied and discussed the Proverb of the Day, we would eat donuts together...sometimes outside, sometimes inside the house. Good times!!! Since we don't do donuts over here, we use candy or pennies as rewards. I read a portion of scripture(sometimes the Proverb of the day , sometimes a devotional from the book Sticky Situations) and then I ask the kids questions. When they answer them correctly or sometimes, for the boys, just sit there with their hands in their laps---I give them a small piece of candy or jelly bean or bit of fruit roll up or a penny. They seem to really love the rewards and they are learning at the same time. Melissa asks all day if we can read and ask questions! Fun!!
