Can you believe there were 426 stars in this jar? The winning guess earned Alma C. the jar of star stickers, the big glow-in-the-dark star taped to the jar, and some sea creature capsules that expand in water.
For unknown reasons, maybe the weather, we had extremely poor turnout, both children and teachers. By the time the activity ended, we had 20 children, but it started out a lot smaller. We ended up throwing the schedule out the window and playing it by ear. We didn't end up doing all the planned activities, but we had fun.
We made trees...
For the "fish" activity, we told the Bible story of the fish and loaves miracle. The kids got chunks of bread and Swedish fish to eat.
After a couple more games, we went outside to play water balloon toss. It was a little chaotic but at least it wasn't raining right then. We finished with lemonade and these cute watermelon popsicles. Then I rushed off to the airport to fly to CA for vacation! I'll blog about that separately.
