The Legend of Three Trees Craft & Giveaway

I received a free copy of the Legend of the Three Trees for review purposes. I was not compensated in any other way. 

Have you ever heard of The Legend of Three Trees? It is a story I have loved for a long time. We actually have a book of it and it has long been one of my children’s favorite. We got to review the movie The Legend of Three Trees this month from Thomas Nelson. We also did a fun Legend of Three Trees craft to go along with it. Also, if you read on, one lucky on reader will get to win a copy of the DVD!

The Legend of Three Trees

If you haven’t heard of this classic folktale, you should definitely learn about it! The legend is that there were three different trees growing. Each tree desired to be great. Each had its own dreams and aspirations of what it would become- a treasure chest, a magnificent sailing ship, or the tallest tree in the forest. They were eau in turn cut down and their dreams did not seem to come true. As the story goes on you realize each of these trees had a purpose unknown to them. One was made into a manger for animal feed. One was made into a small fishing boat, and the last was cut down and use as beams for a cross.  Their dreams may have not come true in the way they thought, but they there as a part of the life of Christ.

This story has a beautiful message of the role that God has in our lives. We may think our life is supposed to go a certain way, but God often has other plans. However, if He is in our lives, we can become great in the way He meant us to be!  Also we learn that we are all important to Him.

Three Trees DVD

The movie, The Legend of Three Trees from Thomas Nelson is truly wonderful!  It is a great way to teach kids this important message. We loved the animation and the music throughout. There are two original songs in it. It is narrated by Hal Holbrook.  Enter below for your chance to win a copy!!

The movie is 40 minutes long and is suitable for ages 2-7.

Make a Legend of Three Trees Craft

The Three Trees Craft we made was simple for all ages to do. We just used popsicle sticks, construction paper and glue.

Legend of Three Trees Craft

We did it on two pieces of construction paper. The first one is the three trees and the second one is what each of them becomes. We glued popsicle sticks on to the paper and cut the trees out of  green paper. The trees were glued on  top of the stick. For the second page, jest glue on the sticks and decorate with pieces of paper cut up for straw and a sail on the boat.
