Free Hermie Games and Coloring Pages

Some of you may be fans of the children's dvd series Hermie & Friends by Max Lucado. My kids have a few of the dvds. I like the videos because they're clean, entertaining, and provide a positive message for children. I confess that I usually purchase our dvds when they are $5 at Lifeway and Family Christian.

This year, Lifeway is celebrating Hermie with "The Year of the Worm". Each month, they're featuring a Hermie & Friends dvd at 50% off the regular price. This month, it’s Stanley the Stinkbug Goes to Camp, a fun and hilarious tale on friendship God’s way. Right now, the dvd is on sale for $7.49.

A lesson in personal hygiene? No way! This is the animated story of Hermie and his friends at Camp Bug-A-Boo. All is well until Stanley the Stinkbug arrives and, boy does he stink! Follow along in this lesson about friendship to help your kids understand that God makes each of us unique and for a purpose.

Lifeway also has free Hermie games and coloring pages on their site. Be sure to bookmark the site. I know you'll need lots of things to keep your children busy this summer. These would also be great for children's church, VBS, or a birthday party.

Free Song Download - I'm a Little Bunny

Here's another great free song download from Charity & the JAMband. "I'm a Little Bunny" is a perfect song to sing and dance to this spring. Play this song and your kids will soon be hopping around, laughing, and pretending they have ears. I downloaded this song a few minutes ago and my 3-year-old wanted me to play it over and over again.

Visit this Charity & the JAMband link to download this song for free. Charity provides a free song download each month. I have a folder created on my computer for each song that she releases. You can also go to the JAMband site to listen live and take a look at their cds. My favorite song is still "Peanut Butter and Jam". Go have a listen and let me know what you think.
