We love to flag up posts on sites other than our own, which may be a help to our readers. Ken Sapp, on his website Creative Youth Ideas, has some tried and tested suggestions for work among children or youth.
His post “Step Up in the New Year” brings together ideas for the start of a new season.
“A person’s feet tell us two very important facts: where one is standing and which way one is going.”
Ken has collated some fun games suitable for children or teens around the theme of feet. There are bound to be several that will suit your group. One example with bare feet and marker pens sounds hilarious!!
He follows these with suggestions for opening up the spiritual aspects, using Bible references, and finally adds some very practical and thought-provoking life applications.
There is even an idea for a simple take-home reminder of the theme.
If you are looking for something to start your new season of ministry, maybe this is for you!
Right now Children’s Ministry Deals are making available for download some New Year’s Children’s ministry resources.
What is there?
There are “Minute to Win It” games, colouring sheets, lesson plans and much more. Perhaps you will find something that will suit your group. Some were previously priced at up to $25 but now are free!
So head on over to their web page and pick up your bargain!
Valentine’s day is approaching! You may not know that we have a free Powerpoint game that is geared for this.
This game is simple to play and has the added bonus of additional slides, suitable for a brief comment on the eternal nature of God’s love, and how it is seen in Christ’s sacrifice.
It is tucked deep in the archives, so here is a link to the post describing it and giving links to the free downloads.
Activity Village is not a Christian site, but there are some lovely resources there that you can adapt for your purposes. Here are the links:
