The Adventure Bible Book of Daring Deeds and Epic Creations

Pin It

While it is isn't "officially" summer, yet, the warm weather is making it sure seem as though we're right in the middle of it. We're all about fun, adventure, and trying new things, especially when we can take it right outside. Of course, it's always nice to have some back up plans when you're stuck inside on a rainy day. Our latest book, The Adventure Bible Book of Daring Deeds and Epic Creations, is chock full of super fun activities for kids–so whether we're stuck inside or exploring nature in the great outdoors, we'll have plenty of fun ideas to try.




ABOUT THE BOOK:
From the bestselling Adventure Bible brand comes The Adventure Bible Book of Daring Deeds and Epic Creations, the ultimate get-your-hands-dirty, try-something-new, explore-the-world manual for kids. Featuring fun and interactive activities alongside biblical takeaways, this book is perfect for boys and girls ages 8 and up.






When you have kids, there's always an adventure waiting! The Adventure Bible Book of Daring Deeds and Epic Creations has sixty cool activities to explore and try. Some of the activities include simple arts and crafts, while others teach educational and survival skills such as basic first aid, identifying animal tracks, and using a compass. The one thing they all have in common is that there's tons of fun to be had! Who knew a little book like this could be so handy?





One of the best parts about this book is that each of the activities are correlated with Christian content to make every "deed' or "creation" faith-based. The book does this in two ways–one, it includes a small section after each activity called Think about This. This area offers Biblical values or affirmations of God's love and grace. For instance, in the activity titled, Terrific Tree Swing, children can learn how to make a tree swing out of rope and a circular piece of wood. The Think about This section reads:


"By reading your Bible every day, you will grow strong like a tree with deep roots."



Another way in which this book ties in an activity with Biblical truths is through a Bible verse or set of verses at the end of each one. For the tree swing activity mentioned, above, a verse is offered from Psalm 1:3:



That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither–whatever they experience.



Another thing that I appreciate in the Book of Daring Deeds and Epic Creations is that the activity levels are versatile. Some ideas are better suited for older kids (survival knots, weaving, first-aid basics, building a fire, setting up a tent, etc.), while there are plenty of others that can be easily done by children of all ages, even really young children (Cloud soup, planting a tree, rock bugs, leaf tracing, etc.). It's really a happy mix of activities that can be enjoyed by the entire family. In addition to adding this book to any children's home library, it would also make a great resource for summer Bible camp/Christian school administrators, because it's packed with plenty of great ideas. 




I'm really loving the creativity included in this book. While some of the activities are already familiar to us, there are still plenty of new ones. With the wide selection of activity levels included, this is a book that is sure to provide years of hands-on learning fun for our family.
