Well as many of you know I am a big believer in the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd and I love all of the material and how they offer the child a chance to really come closer to God. My girls both attend an atrium in our area and I am helping to start one at our church. However I really feel like I should have some things here at home so that the girls can think about God deeper here at home too. I don’t have the space for all the larger atrium works in my house, so I have come up with a way to do it smaller! Peg People! They are all the rage on Etsy and so much fun to paint! So I thought that if I use them to make atrium works, I would be able to make small sets that can be stored easily in a drawer! I made my test set today and it turned out really well! I started with the corner stone of the Catechesis atrium work~ the Good Shepherd! I made peg Good Shepherd, wooden ball sheep (they have a flat bottom), and a dollhouse picket fence sheep fold. Here are the pictures of how it turned out. The girls have not had a chance to work with it yet, but I think that they will like it alot!
“I am the Good Shepherd says the Lord. I know my sheep and they know me…”
“I call my sheep by name and I lead them out…”
I really think that this will be a wonderful supplement to atrium work for my girls. I dont think any of my works will replace the traditional works, but they will allow my girls to work with them when we arent at the atrium! I will be posting soon on out prayer table once I get it all done!
How do you share your faith with your kids at home?
