I know it may appear that I dropped off the face of the Earth, but I’m still here! Our family has been extremely busy working on a very special project.
I’m pleased to announce the launch of a new business that will sell Orthodox-specific craft kits and supplies!
As you know, we’re a crafty family. I’m always on the lookout for ideas and supplies to teach my children about the Faith in a hands-on way. There are many resources and supplies available for our Protestant and Catholic friends. It’s not so easy for us Orthodox. Many of the projects just don’t meld with our theology. Most of the supplies just don’t “look” Orthodox.
Orthodox Christian Craft Supply will offer craft kits for Orthodox children. In this first year, I will focus on projects for the 12 major feasts, plus a few extra. Right now, kits are available for the Nativity of the Theotokos and Elevation of the Cross.
You don’t have to be crafty to do these kits! I planned activities based on basic supplies like white glue and markers. No need to be artistic or own special equipment. Just a desire to teach children.
Please come visit and look around for yourself or your parish’s Church School. Tell everyone you know! I’d also love to hear any ideas you have about what I should develop and offer.
I pray these materials will be useful to you as you share the love of Christ with your children.
Glory to Jesus Christ! Glory forever!
