The Beginner's Bible - Party Ideas & a GIVEAWAY

Today, my love of crafting and my love of books (and book reviews) comes together - with another fun addition...a giveaway!

Zondervan has always been very generous with my blog readers, and this is no exception. Zondervan/Zonderkidz is allowing me to give away a HUGE package of The Beginner's Bible books to celebrate 25 years! The prize package is valued at over $90!
To celebrate this great giveaway, I wanted to share with you a couple quick and easy ideas for a party using The Beginner's Bible Super-Duper, Mighty, Jumbo Activity Book

Just to be clear - I did check to make sure my projects would not violate the copyright of The Beginner's Bible Super-Duper, Mighty, Jumbo Activity Book...and I even double checked with the publisher, just to be safe.  

I made a bookmark and mini coloring book for the "goodie bags" and a banner for decoration: 
My six year old donated his coloring skills for the colored bookmark shown above. :o)

The bookmarks and mini coloring book were made in a similar fashion. I simply copied a coloring page from The Beginner's Bible Super-Duper, Mighty, Jumbo Activity Book and scaled it down to fit 4 on a sheet. I copied the scaled down version onto cardstock (which I cut up into bookmarks) and onto regular copy paper (which I cut to create the mini coloring book). The mini coloring book was completed with the addition of a cardstock cover. 
For the banner, I used full-size copies of a few of the coloring pages from The Beginner's Bible Super-Duper, Mighty, Jumbo Activity Book, which I copied onto cardstock and trimmed to size. I then punched holes in the top corners of each banner piece and threaded it with twine to hang.
Because I kept the banner pieces in simple black and white, I wanted to add pops of color with the twine.  I used strands of four different colors of twine to get the duo-tone bows.
The bookmarks, mini coloring books, and banner would be great for any party...just add crayons!

Now - about that amazing giveaway...
