On the Fifth Day of Christmas: FIVE GOLLLDEN RINNGS!


The five golden rings represent the Pentateuch: the first five books of the Old Testament

(Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy).


Simple ways to teach a little one:

* Here’s where a little bit of useful review comes into play: review the two turtledoves (the OT and NT), then let your child show you once again where the gospels are (hint: find the section of the Bible with lots of red letters since those were the words that Jesus spoke). Then, explain that the first part of the Bible contains five books that teach us about creation, sin, God’s law, and God’s promise to save us through Jesus.


* Make a paper chain from five rings of yellow/gold paper. On each ring, write one of the books of the Pentateuch.


* Using plastic rings, gold thread, or construction paper, let your child wear five rings on her fingers today and recite the Pentateuch often, wiggling each finger as you go.
