What's In The Bible? for $5!

My boys like to play games and watch videos at Jelly Telly. There's Dr Schniffenhousen (love that name!) who explains science stuff, the Sunday School Lady who shares all kinds of things from the Bible, Chuck Waggin who sings countrified songs, and a multitude of other fun characters. It's just a fun Christian-based, educational site that was created by the same people who came up with VeggieTales!

Awhile ago, the Jelly Telly people came out with a video series entitled What's in the Bible? Maybe you've heard of it... If you have an opinion on this series, go ahead and share in the comment section. I'd like to hear what you think about it, since I haven't seen any of these yet.

I didn't think I'd ever get to watch What's in the Bible?, cuz, well... Their normal price per volume is $15, and that can be pretty spendy on our budget. Especially when there's a whole series! But I'm really excited because they're offering a Valentine's special. There's a code to get $10 off of Vol. 1: Genesis.

Plus you get free shipping!

Enter the code LOVE1 at checkout, and you can get the first volume for only $5!

You can check out the deal here.

I haven't seen an expiration date on this code, but you may want to jump on the chuck-wagon right away so you don't miss out!

UPDATE (3-12-12): I received a Thank You email for my last purchase, and they included another code to get $10 off of Volume 1. So if the code above doesn't work, try this one:

And here's a short blurb on the first five minutes:

Additional volumes in the What's in the Bible? series:

Rain Painting

I've been waiting for a long time to do rain painting with my boys. The main reason I haven't before is because I never had the right kind of paint.

And now I do.

And it's raining today.

So we got out some white construction paper and went to it.

What is rain painting? I don't know for sure if this is actually termed 'rain painting', but it fits.

Use powder paint (tempera)... the kind you have to mix with water to make paint... Only don't mix it with water... cuz that's what the rain is for...

Sprinkle some on a piece of paper - whatever colors you desire. Make a pattern or don't.

Set it on a tray out in the rain, and let the rain do the painting.

Snap a photo of the co-artists with their masterpieces:

Then be all artsy and discuss the color blending, the textures created by the raindrops and paint. Ask: What do you think the rain was trying to say with this piece of artwork?
