So tomorrow starts the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering at our Church. Do you know who Lottie Moon is? Lottie Moon was a missionary to China for nearly 40 years. She taught the people of China how to read and write.
She often made tea cakes (cookies) for the children. The children would eat the cookies and then take Lottie to their mothers where she would then share the gospel with the family.
Since we are starting our Offering at Church tomorrow I wanted to do an activity with the kids to learn about who Lottie Moon was. I searched for information and found this story about Lottie and a recipe for the cookies she used to make.
First we read the story.
Then we made the cookies.
After making the dough we rolled it out and cut the cookies.
Then we popped them in the oven. They only take 5 minutes to cook!
I found coloring pages to go along with the story so while the cookies were cooking (and while we ate them) they colored the pictures.
Well, the bean cut his.
Then we ate them! And they were really good.
So there is a really neat lesson for children (and parents) about Lottie Moon.
And it was a lesson for me. I learned what a tea cake was and that they are pretty good. And very quick to make!
