Sneak Peak

Change is in the air. Weather, life, seasons, work…everything is changing and becoming better and better. With that “change in the air” and because I know that the holiday season is crazy busy, I tried to do a little planning ahead. In the nursery/toddler/pre-school area at CPC:Benton (Kingdom Kids) I got the volunteer calendar for October pretty much squared away and when I pulled my November calendar out I was pleasantly surprised to see that I didn’t have to do much to it! It was already all filled in with happy volunteers…. YAY! They are SO awesome! After the calendars were hung in eyesight, I moved on to working on the November and December Lessons……it went so well that I got our lessons planned out till August of next year!!!! What???? I know.


(wall of inspiration….well black board)

I then moved to my favorite part of working in the Kingdom Kids area (other than the kiddos of course) is ….. CRAFTS!!!! You should have expected that one.  :) Here is a sneak peak of a few crafts we will be pulling out in November…..

Of course when you talk about Thanksgiving you automatically want to move to Christmas!!!!! There will be a party for the Kingdom Kids at church on Sunday the 18th, don’t know all the particulars, I DO know it will be a BLAST. We’ll have games, crafts, coloring sheets, candy and cute snacks…..sigh, I am a little sad it is only October.  :) Here is a quick sneak peak of a few goodies we will be doing that day (IF all goes to plan).
