Summer is coming to a heartbreaking end and the school year is just around the corner. We've had sooooooo much fun this summer, especially welcoming Little Sissy to the family.
Now that I'm trying to get back into the swing of singing time
and bringing a new baby to church in general
SIDE NOTE :
Don't wear a white skirt with a newborn because they're destined poo all over you
... I wanted to start things out super simple.
I was kind of going for a game similar to "Ten Fingers" to highlight all of the fun activities the kids did over the summer.
Everyone starts out with five beach ball sticks in their hand. I'll have the kids take turns coming up and drawing a slip of paper with a summer activity. If someone draws "went to the beach" all of the children who went to the beach this summer lose one of their beach balls. It's nice because if they lose the game they can't get too upset because they are winning at life !
It's easy. It's mind numbing. It technically doesn't have anything to do with singing, but it can keep the kids entertained between songs.
Most of the activity ideas came from my Summer Bucket List post from last year... Here's some slips of paper that can be printed and cut out or you can totally come up with your own ideas!
After cutting out the beach balls, I just hot glued them to the back of some skewer sticks and BOOM! You've got yourself a primary activity.
