Book Review: Big and Little Activity Devotional

About the Book: 

Kids crave constant activities and attention. Adults crave quiet moments of refreshment. How can we achieve both? Big and Little Activity Devotional engages minds of all ages with biblical devotions, while providing a creative outlet through coloring and activities to diffuse stress.

My Thoughts:

As soon as the Big and Little Activity Devotional book came out of the package, my daughters (ages 7 & 4) wanted to try it out. As expected, they loved it! Though I limit us to completing one page spread per day, they’ve looked all through the book and expressed their delight over future activities. With about 70 parent-child sets of activities, the book should last us 2-3 months.

The Big and Little Activity Devotional works best for us if I let them complete the activity and then we do the short devotional as they finish up coloring. (For example, a maze that they work through before coloring the little embellishments outside of it.) Each page spread is laid out so that the adult and child sit facing one another and can interact face-to-face. The activities captivate their attention and they thoroughly enjoy them before we discuss the Scripture and thoughts presented.

I recommend the Big and Little Activity Devotional, written by Rachel C. Swanson and illustrated by Jacy Corral, to any parent or caregiver seeking a way to teach spiritual truths while engaging a child with a fun activity.
