Down on The Farm
Looking for some Summer Fun?
Each year, I select a fun theme for our Mid-Week Adventures (Wednesday night Summer program). All activities; including VBS, are based upon that theme.
Wednesday nights are our fellowship and outreach nights.
Each week, I plan something fun...and often messy...for our children and their invited friends.
Some years, I do a short devotion before we begin...and some years I do something that I call "Guess who it is?" where I will tell the children a little bit about a person from the Bible, give them a few clues, and then make them wait until Sunday morning to tell me who the mystery person was. This brings the kids back on Sunday morning...including their friends.
On Sunday morning, I take their answers, pass out small prizes (normally theme-based) and then give them the "Rest of the Story"...as Paul Harvey would say. If you don't know who Paul Harvey is...then you are obviously much younger than I am. :)
Many of my events are "must do's" each year...according to MY KIDDOS. So, I simply give the activity a new name and they are totally happy!
I have an extra car that I use to haul stuff back and forth.
During Mid-Week Adventures, the kids have affectionately dubbed it "The Party Wagon."
I have most of my summer supplies in the car (PT Cruiser) and I simply drive it only the playfield, pull out what I need...and we are ready to go! Easy Peasy!
Field Trip to the water park, city pool, member's home or any place that has a nice cool swimming hole. Plan your event today!
Coordinate with your Pastor, Men's Group, or fishing buffs at your church to create a memorable fishing experience for your kids. This is one event that they will definitely remember.
Duck Hunting Down on the Farm. AKA Nerf Night! You can set up an arcade shooting gallery with rubber ducks, host a full-blown nerf wars or plan something in between...click above for a few ideas.
What's more fun than a Scavenger Hunt? Give the children a list of things to find (it will be different for everyone due to location) Or, check out the super selfie scavenger hunt event for more ideas. Click on the link above to find the Super Selfie Scavenger Hunt.
