    Our Hike

    Every creature of God is good (1 Tim. 4:4).
    1. Mommy and I took a
    hike today.
    We saw many things
    along the way.
    2. A squirrel ran up
    a maple tree.
    He chattered and waved
    his tail at me.
    3. A ladybug jumped
    upon my shoe.
    I jiggled my toe, and
    away she flew.
    4. A rabbit hid when we
    came near.
    He twitched his nose
    and wiggled one ear.
    5. We met a kitten both
    white and black.
    She rubbed my leg, and
    I stroked her back.
    6. We had lots of fun
    on our walk
    Though we only hiked
    around our block.

    Heartfelt Messages for Mom


    1. 1.

      Remove pages 30–31 from the magazine, and mount them on heavy paper.

    2. 2.

      Cut out the heart wreath, the individual hearts, and the messages.

    3. 3.

      Glue each message on the back of an individual heart.

      Write your name, the date, and your own personal message on the last one.

    4. 4.

      Carefully cut along the broken lines on the wreath. Place the hearts in the slits.

    Mom, let me make your heart smile today by making your bed.

    I want to say with all my heart, “I love you!”

    I will give you a heart-to-heart hug, Mom.

    I will sing you a song straight from my heart.

    Mom, I’m going to fix you a heart-warming breakfast.

    From the bottom of my heart, thank you for being my mom.

    Here is a scripture to cheer your heart: As I have loved you, … love one another (John 13:34).
