Bible Chapter Counting
As my daughter was waking up from her nap today, she noticed my Bible. We opened it and she immediately pointed to the large number 2 marking a chapter number in Isaiah. She exclaimed, "Two!" That started our Bible chapter counting. We went back to chapter 1 and counted along with the big numbers that marked the chapters (the little numbers that marked the verses were apparently too tiny to catch her interest). It had never occurred to me to do this before, but it ended up being a really great activity. We got to practiced counting, recognizing numbers, and we got to familiarize her with a little piece of the way the Bible works.
