{FREE GIVEAWAY: we choose virtues kids cards & poster!!}

Why Choose Virtues

Let’s be honest, instilling virtues in kids is hard work. But can it be fun too? We think so. In fact, there’s no better way to learn. So We Choose Virtues brings memorable catchphrases, endearing characters, and just plain fun to simply inspire character that lasts. It’s the best choice you can make for the kids in your life.

Proverbs 22:6 says “Train a child in the way he should go,

and when he is old he will not turn from it.”

We Choose Virtues is a great system that you can incorporate into your home bible study and help illustrate and teach your children what virtues are and what character is.

Image

We Choose Virtues was created by Heather McMillan, out of her love for children and her desire to see them reach their personal potential.  As a preschool teacher and a children’s pastor, it concerned her how often she came across children whose lack of self control, honesty and perseverance was almost debilitating.  How could they succeed in life without the skills that come from good character?

Photobucket

We Choose Virtues offers a great assortment of products and we were lucky enough to get one of their brand new products called Virtue Clue Cards.

Included in a plastic carrying pouch with a velcro button closure, are 13 brightly decorated cards.  These cards are the perfect size to fit in a purse and take with you wherever you go.  They feature The Virtue Kids, their names, the Virtue catchphrase and antonyms, and on the back a “You can do it” challenge.

The virtues included are:  Attentive, Content, Gentle, Obedient, Diligent, Forgiving, Honest, Kind, Helpful, Patient, Perseverant, and Self-Controlled.

In addition to the cards, we also received the Family Character Assessment and Kids Memory Verses,  Bible Heroes, and Truths, which are both FREE on their website…so make sure you go and check those out!!

We received  The Teacher’s Virtue Cards for families and the The Kids Virtue Poster.

The The Teacher’s Virtue Cards for families comes with 12 Faith-based Parenting Character Cards.

The virtues included are:  Attentive, Content, Gentle, Obedient, Diligent, Forgiving, Honest, Kind, Helpful, Patient, Perseverant, and Self-Controlled. And the cards say “I am…Attentive” to reinforce the value when the child says it.

There is a brief story about the characters (Kids of Virtueville) like Oboe Joe (OK, whatever you say, I will obey, right away) who plays his oboe under the direction of his conductor. He obediently plays his oboe in the marching band.

  • There are “teachable moments” questions to start a discussion in your family about the depth of the virtue and character trait and how it applies to life and situations.
  • There is a Memory Scripture Verse and a
  • Virtue User Challenge which the family can try to complete tasks related to the virtue.

This is a fantastic tool to use in you family to teach your kids about values, virtues, character traits and about living godly lives.I highly recommend this  product! It is perfect for single mothers like me who want to raise their child(ren) in a godly way, with values, virtues and character.

My son and I have so much fun with the activities and he know what the words mean, and we enjoy the silly games and tasks on the back of the card after we have read the story. Get a set of these cards for your family for lots of fun, learning, and laughter! 🙂

And the Poster is a great reference tool to use on the fridge or on your child’s bedroom wall or door to make the lessons even more memorable!

Instilling virtues and values into our children is a hefty task, but with God and scripture as our guide, we can make it fun, easy, memorable and a wonderful experience for our families!

Deuteronomy 6:6-7(NIV)

6 These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. 7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.

SewnNatural makes handcrafted modern eco designs for babies, kids and the whole family. Using all natural fabrics (wool, cotton, silk, bamboo) and many organic and upcycled, vintage materials is one of the ways I put eco-forward thinking into action.

“I use these gorgeous, often very colorful sustainable materials to make designs that are durable and functional – my version of sustainable design. I also work to ensure that my towels, toys, quilts, mobiles, wall art and clothing made out of organic and natural fibres are affordable and accessible.”

Look for her feature in the upcoming May/June issue of Mothering magazine.
