This past Sunday, Oct. 6, I took the kids on a field trip, showing them what's what with the various bulletin boards that we claim as our own in Sunday school land - outside the classrooms. The hope is to not only engage our parents, but to get the kids involved too.
First we wandered down the hallway and we talked about how they can support their fabulous Sunday school teachers with the Sunday School Teacher of the Month bulletin board - pictures, cards, notes...Anyone care to guess what this Sunday's Chapel Time activity is going to be?
Next we talked about things they might want to check out on our main bulletin board. And that's when the excitement level amped up about 110%.
You see, last week's Pinterest Find of the Week was the Erupting Pumpkin Experiment! We discovered this particular activity courtesy of the blog, Growing a Jeweled Rose: Learning and Loving Through Messy Play. Since we're firmly in the land of October it is the perfect time to discover just what your pumpkin can do for you, in this case it can, well, erupt...throw up, whatever. The kids were so excited by this experiment our Pinterest Find of the Week will have to be held over one more week just by popular demand. And all you need for this fun experiment is a pumpkin, baking soda, vinegar, and food coloring (see below).
Be sure to take a peek at what's new on our bulletin boards, we're taking the chance and time to make them as interactive as possible.
See you in Sunday school; bring a friend!
