Noah’s Ark – The Invitation :: A 1,000 Piece Puzzle

by | Jan 10, 2014 | Advent and Christmas, Ancient History, Christmas 2013, Connecting With History: Vol I, Puzzles | 2 comments

I always love when what we are studying for History ties in nicely to the Liturgical Year! This Noah’s Ark puzzle was perfect to complete during Advent to go along with our Jesse Tree readings.

We actually had a pretty slow start with our history studies this fall… We are currently wrapping up Unit Two and I just finished reading Gilgamesh (also available from RC History) aloud to the children. It was the first time we had read this story – the oldest known legend – and they all loved the part that told of a great flood and of one man who survived by building an ark!

    Hi, Jessica! I have an important question for you I've been meaning to ask…. We have 6 children 10 and under, the youngest is 18 months. We keep trying to do puzzles, and can't find a way to do it where the little ones don't frustrate our efforts, lose puzzles pieces, or take apart our puzzle when we're not looking. Any suggestions?

    Hmmm.. We have a card table that I set up just for the puzzles, and this puzzle we completed up on the counter, out of reach. Usually my little ones don't bother them too much (I did let Bud play with the puzzle a little on Christmas Eve while I watched). Surprisingly, with all the puzzles we've completed we have not lost any pieces yet (we had to do a little searching after I came home from the hospital with Bud).

    I have considered the Puzzle Stow and Go and Puzzle Sort and Go in the past… Perhaps something like that might be a good option for your family?

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
