They cut 12 hearts, 2 each of yellow, black, blue, red, white, and green.
They sat one yellow, and one green aside, and then glued a yellow back to back with a black, a black to a blue, a blue to a red, a red to a white, and a white to a green.
They folded the yellow heart in half, and then glued it to the left hand side of the yellow heart, that had the black on the back.
They folded those hearts in half (so the black was on the outside), and glued them to the left hand side of the black heart, that had the blue on the back.
They continued folding, and gluing, blue to blue...
...red to red...
...white to white...
...and green to green...
...until the book was ready to "read".
Don't know the story of the wordless book? You can find it (and the verses to go along with it) here, from the Berean Bible Teachers.
But basically it's:
- Yellow for heaven - where we'd all like to go.
- Black for sin, breaking God's law - that keeps us from going there.
- Blue for repentance (not all wordless books include that one, but I like to use it with 2 Corinthians 7:10) - when your sorry about the sin.
- Red for redemption - the penalty has been paid for us.
- White for justification - just as if we hadn't sin.
- and Green for growing - which is what to do next.
It's great to be a homeschooler.
