kids funnies, warm & fuzzies

Kidmin Weekend Smiles…

This past weekend, I had the privilege of leading Kidmin at a friend’s church retreat… We had children from 1.5 yrs old to 9 yrs old… talk about a big gap… but, oh how I enjoyed my time with little ones!!!  The following are some fun & awwww moments:

  • “I did stinky-poo.  Can you flush my toilet?”  (3 yr old; yes flushing the toilet comes w/ the territory…)
  • Me:  “Do you remember what we learned today?”  (asking a 3 yr old at 11 pm… you can tell that she is so tired that she’s not thinking clearly…)  I:  “uuuuggghhh…”  Me:  “Let me help you…  Jesus for…”  I: “FIVE!”  (her mom and I busted out laughing…. the lesson was Jesus forgives us.  Oh well….)
  • “you do fun crafts and snacks!”  (a compliment from a 6 yr old.  She remembered the Bible story & point too!)
  • (While playing Veggietales Dance, Dance, Dance)  Me:  “I’ll tell you where you step… follow these arrows…  Up, Up, Up” (me calling out the arrows).  E:  (jumps every time I say “up.”  I should have clarified better afterall, she is only 4 yrs old.)
  • Hot cocoa snack with large marshmellow to represent Jesus and lots of mini-marshmellows to represent the crowd that came to hear and see Jesus in the story of the paralytic man brought by his four friends (taken right out of Humongous Book of Preschool Lessons).  “Oh my gosh, look how crowded the house was!!!!  There are so many little marshmellow people there!!!”  (so glad this 6 yr old got the illustration!!!)
  • “K’s high of the day was being able to go to your class twice in one day!”  (from a parent)
