Copying icons with Alex has helped him to know feasts of the Church, stories from the Bible and Theology. I have taken icons from about our house and copied them as best I could in the limited time we have during Kristiana’s nap. I describe the scene or tell the story and then I ask him questions about it as we paint. And voila, icon writing for kids. It is a great tool for teaching the faith.
