After attending the APCE (Assoc of Presbyterian Church Educators) conference, where Karen Ware Jackson told us about the name "prayground" that another church had coined to describe the designated children's space in the worship service; I of course, had to take it! :) I love it!! We already had the space and most of the materials, but I got some great ideas (some for our worship bags too, click here to see them!) to spice up the space, so I wanted to share the finished product :)
I'm sure I'll continue to tweak it and change things to make it interesting, but this is basically the set up...
|The children create their "offerings" to God and the church and we hang some up on our picture wall!|
|they love the new fidget sticks :) that's all some of them did! fidget and listen :)|
|puzzles are another favorite!|
|my older girls love creating "offerings" to hang on the wall!|
I'm loving the space! I had been searching for a great name to call it and now I have it :) Thank you Grace Lutheran for coming up with it!!
