My girls have been learning about the components of blood this past week.  Today, they made a blood model.  I love activities that they can do on their own!

I labeled the first picture with the ingredients, but I fear it may be a bit small for many of you to see.
Red Blood Cells: cinnamon candies  White Blood Cell: white jelly bean  Platelets: candy sprinkles  
Plasma: light corn syrup


Though it was "edible" the "blood" was awfully sweet, so we have to discard it in the "Hazardous Waste" bin!
Great way to visualize the substance which gives us life.  Try it with your children and then discuss how Christ gave His blood to save us!
