Proverbs 24:3-4

By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches.

Bibby's Backyard Bible Club

Last weekend we hosted Backyard Bible Club at our home. We handed out flyers in our neighborhood and invited some surrounding families as well.
Thursday evening we kicked it off with an Ice Cream Social.
There wasn't a good turnout, but it's only our first year. Nevertheless, we're glad we did it and will do it again and again. Our kids were thrilled with it and it was all Luke could talk about!

Friday's lesson was the Parable of the Lost Coin:

For the activity we hid coins in wood shavings for the kids to find.

For our craft I sewed hide and seek bags.
The kids decorated them with fabric markers and filled them with rice, pennies and a quarter (the lost coin).

We ended the day with lunch (pbj sandwiches) and a Bibby train ride.

But the engine got tired and had to modernize with a little more horsepower.

Saturday was a rainy day and the lesson was the Parable of the Sower.

We pretended to be plants in order to help the kids get a better understanding of what seeds need to grow.

For our craft the kids painted small pots, filled them with dirt and a seed.

For the activity we filled the balloons with pictures of the different grounds where the seeds fell. They enjoyed throwing the darts and popping the balloons to see where their seed fell. The good soil earned them candy.

We ended with some extra balloon fun and of course, another train ride.
