Mothers Day

Try switching out feet for hands or lipgloss kisses or hearts. The straw adds a 3D element, switch them out for twisted paper, or twigs.

Here are a few ideas for sharing appreciation

Her children arise and
call her blessed;
her husband also,
and
he praises her:
“Many women do noble things,
But
You surpass them all.”
Proverbs 31:30
She
Is clothed in
Strength
And
dignity
And she
Laughs
Without fear
Of the future
Proverbs 30:25
Honor her
for all that her hands have done,
and
let her works bring her praise
at the city gate.
Proverbs 31:31:

Summer Fun

Nature walk creations!

Have Sparks collect interesting things as they walk, as they do, at home sort into living and nonliving. Create a collage as you talk about what they discovered!
Seeker scope– these are fun to talk on walks. Play I Spy or just listen as they talk about what they see. This paper towel tube, decorated and coated in Modge-Podge lasted all summer!

Find John the Baptist’s Head Spinner

  • Printout John the Baptist and head
  • crayons/markers/paint to color in
  • with a sharp knife cut out the spaces for John’s head
  • With a pin fastener near his belt fasten a round paper or plate so John’s head appears in either spot when turned!

Harvest time fun!

Pumpkin decorations are almost standard but don’t forget to roast the seeds! Sprinkle with salt, splatter with barbeque sauce!
