All Dressed Up

Ye are the children of the Lord your God (Deuteronomy 14:1).

  1. Elise wanted to dress up. She put on Dad’s shoes and a fake red nose.

    I’m a funny clown.

  2. Elise ran back to her room. She put on a yellow construction hat and grabbed a plastic hammer.

  3. Elise hammered the floor before she ran back to her room.

    I’m a strong builder.

  4. Elise put on a glittery purple and silver gown and twirled out of her room.

  5. Elise liked being a princess. She stayed dressed in her gown for the rest of the day.

    I’m a beautiful princess.

  6. At bedtime Elise changed into her favorite green pajamas. She walked out of her room and sat on Mom’s lap.

    Who are you?

  7. I am Elise. I am a child of God.
