Here’s How It Works

Cottage Meetings for Kids is divided into 12 modules following along with the topics from the Cottage Meeting Resource Guide. Each module is divided into 4 weeks with an Activity Day Outline and list of additional resources following the lessons. Each module features a read-a-loud book that families can read and discuss throughout the month. At the end of each month you can unite with other families to participate together in the Activity Day. This works well when families are reading the same book and going through the same lessons on their own and then come together to share their experiences and reinforce the principles at the Activity Day. Age is not a factor, togetherness is the key (Kids in Pre-K through 12th grade are welcome). The only requirement we have is that you HAVE FUN!

Once you’ve completed the 12 lessons, there will be a Liberty Warrior Graduation Certificate that you can print out to acknowledge your child(ren)’s amazing achievements.

Please note:  You will need the Activity Day General Resources PDF, which includes printable cut-outs, for every Activity Day. Some Activity Days require supplemental resources that can be found in the Activity Day Outline PDF.

Cottage Meetings for Kids Helping to Raise Patriots

This Parent’s Manual supplies you with additional resources, books, and ideas to incorporate into each of the monthly lessons. You’ll find inspirational stories, and detailed outlines for each of the 12 lessons.
