The Gift of Love is the Christmas story artfully brought to life through the captivating expressions of interactive art, music and drama. DVD includes 3 art projects specifically for your elementary-aged children. Children will watch and hear the plan of salvation, clearly and creatively presented to them. Run Time: 143 minutes
We first watched the 10 min picture video of the birth of Christ. It was really amazing and we have decided to show it to our family at Christmas instead of reading the story. This way the kids will stay more focused and can visualize the story. The chalk artwork is amazing and beautiful. When the movie starts you first think of the guy that use to be on public television with the “happy little trees”. You see a women drawing a portrait and coloring trees(LOL), by the end we see it’s Mary holding Jesus with the whole manger scene, simply beautiful.
There are three “art lessons” on the DVD as well. We only watched the “Rejoice” one, teaching us how to do creative lettering. Heidi Shorts was very detailed and went slow enough a 10 year old could keep up with her. In the end you come out with a easy to make, ready to frame pencil drawing of “Rejoice” with Jesus as the center. And with using a black light you can see it glow.
Over all I was impressed with this video. I love that the Jesus birth story was only 10 minutes making it easy to share with young kids who tend to get bored with things quickly. I love the how-to video and I want to go out and buy the colored pencils and black light needed to make it for myself.
