We made some measuring cup and spoon printables we were planning to post sometime, and the Gospel reading this Sunday made us think this would be a great week to give them to you!

Give and gifts will be given to you; a good measure, packed together, shaken down, and overflowing, will be poured into your lap. For the measure with which you measure will in return be measured out to you. 

Luke 6:38

We did some hands-on measuring equivalents this week too by pouring lentils from one measuring cup to another.  It is a relatively low mess way to talk about how two quarters make a half, and two halves make a whole, etc.  Our girls really enjoyed it and quickly brought out play kitchen cups and bowls to keep on playing with the lentils.  And our sweet toddler made sure that a good measure was poured into our laps… and even onto the floor! 
Hope this week you have time to reflect on God’s abundant gifts in your life!
