Garden of the Good Shepherd week 5

We've been staying away from the sweets lately, so this week is book based.

Day 29 ~  The Tree of Life's Leaves
Revelation 22:1-5

We read Why Do Leaves Change Colors?
Fall Leaf Project
Fall Leaves Fall

Day 30 ~ The Tree of Life's Flowers
Isaiah 55:12-13

We read Planting a Rainbow

Day 31 ~ The Tree of Life's Fruit
Galatians 5:22-26

We made Ambrosia! 
11 oz can mandarin oranges, drained
13 oz pineapple chunks, drained
1 c. flaked coconut
1/2 c. whipping cream, whipped with 1/2 tsp vanilla and 1 1/2 Tbsp sugar
1 c mini-marshmallows
mix all ingredients together and chill overnight.

We also did a fruits of the Holy Spirit maze.

Day 32 ~ The Owl
Psalm 102:6-12

Though I was sorely tempted by these super cute and yummy looking cupcakes, I exercised restraint and we just read Owl Moon and my kids painted some owls.  Sorry, no pictures. :(

Day 33 ~ The Olive Tree
Genesis 8:6-11

The kids did some Easter activity pages and coloring pages.

Day 34 ~ The Palm Tree
John 12:12-17

We read Chicka Chicka Boom Boom

Day 35 ~ Roses and Lilies
Song of Songs 2:1-7

We ended up celebrating this one a few days late (Monday in fact :) )
So we had the roses hubby bought for Mother's Day and we read The Rose in My Garden.
