creation paintings, day 5

Our final creation paintings inspired by Giving Thanks - A Native American Good Morning Message by Chief Jake Swamp. What a wonderful week we had painting these! (See the previous 4 posts for the rest of the paintings.) All text is from that book, and the top painting is the example I painted while reciting the text, while the kids followed along -- J's is in the middle, Zoo Boy's at the bottom.

Elder Brother Sun, we send thanks for shining your light and warming Mother Earth.

Thank you, Grandmother Moon, for growing full every month to light the darkness for children and sparkling waters.

We give you thanks, twinkling stars, for making the night sky so beautiful and for sprinkling morning dew drops on the plants.
