Designed by God So I Must Be Special

by Bonnie Sose

Book Summary: This is a great book that shares with a child all of the wonderful things that God gave them and how He designed them to be the special person that they are!

Bible Verse: I praise you because I am fearfully, and wonderfully made! Psalm 139:14

Bible printable from 2 Teaching Mommies


Craft: Using our Education Cubes, the boys made themselves and worked on shape recognition at the same time! We used the Shape Person printable from 2 Teaching Mommies and our shape insert cards along with our cube. The boys “made” themselves by rolling shapes. As they rolled a shape, they identified the shape and if possible, they added the corresponding body part until their body was complete!


Fingerprints: The boys had lots of fun stamping their fingerprint as they used the Fingerprint Activity from Making Learning Fun.


Counting: We practiced a bit of counting and 1-1 correspondence by using our Dot Counting insert cards along with our Education Cubes. The boys rolled the cube, counted the dots and then counted the same number of body parts. Here, one of my boys is in the process of counting out five fingers!


My Body Book: We talked about their different body parts and the boys colored their My Body Book from DLTK.


Body Parts: We talked more about body parts and had a little fun identifying body parts using our Education Cubes along with the Body Parts insert cards. The boys rolled the cube and identified the body part. Then they pointed to the part on their own body and counted the part(s). Another more advanced option would be to use the Spanish Body Parts cards.


Custom Books: I found these adorable Custom Books from DLTK that the boys LOVED! We were able to customize each book and then print it out for the boys to color!


Name Stamping: The boys love stamping! So, of course, the Name Stamping from 1+1+1=1 was a huge it!


More “Name” Activities: The boys also had fun spelling their names with foam letters and letter magnets!


Snack: For a fun snack, you could make some yummy people cookies!
