I also wanted to include a couple super cool Easter projects that I really wanted to do but didn't get a chance:
Right now, we are working through a short unit on the life of Moses. We completed 10 weeks of the 10 commandments and the children seemed to be quite interested in Moses. I now wish that we had planned it so we did an overview of Moses' life and then a closer look at each commandment but this way should work too.
After Moses we are jumping into a pretty huge project. We are going to do 3 months of "Bible Legends" with trading cards and all!
Each week we will do an overview of important people throughout the Bible. We will print out these trading cards and each child will build a little collection of Bible Legends to take home! I am actually quite stoked about this one!
The only thing I have yet to figure out is how to store all these trading cards...
We have children that come and go and children that are regular attenders. I am thinking of creating a little box or something for each child and it could stay in the Jr. Kid's Church Room but then they may loose some of the excitement... I also haven't figured out exactly how we will "trade" cards. I thought a "trading party" would be in order but not sure how that will look. Any suggestions?
