OK, as you know we have been under some strange weather here in Oklahoma. Matter-of-fact, we spent some time in our Tornado shelter this morning at 2:30. I am thankful we have a shelter. But, on with the story... My darling hubby will be preaching a Gospel Meeting in another Oklahoma town this week. So, I wanted him to buy a weather radio to carry to the hotel with him. Better to be prepared...IS MY MOTTO!!!
So, to put his nervous wife at ease...he went to Walmart and bought himself a portable weather radio. :) When he unpacked the radio, this packaging was around the ends of the radio... I literally squealed..."LOOK SOLOMON'S TEMPLE." My very loving and patient hubby....responded. "You can have the packing material from the box." I love the gifts he gives me. :)
I was busy most of the day, prepping my classroom for Sunday....prepping our Tornado shelter....and prepping my hubby's Suits, Ties, Shirts, etc. But, I took a few minutes to paint one of these "Temples" to share with you.
I have not done any DETAIL painting...but, just painting it GOLD makes it look MORE like Solomon's Temple. :)
I am looking forward to using this during my lessons on Solomon. I have another "Temple" Model that I will be using...but, this one can sit on the 3D visual table...and the KIDDOS can have the Hebrews come to the Temple. Believe me....If I could find 8 of these cardboard Temples....I would have each of my KIDDOS make a Temple as a Take Home Project....Just can't justify buying 4 Weather Alert Radios. LOL
My encouragement to you is this....BEFORE YOU THROW IT AWAY....THINK! Ask yourself, "Can I reuse, re-purpose, or remake this TRASH into something that will help me teach a BIBLE LESSON, STORY or VIRTUE?
