Can you guess what the theme is for this week?
The kids will have a few projects done each day! With a smaller group, it's not so stressful to get it done right away. I think I had the easiest job because I was mainly taking pictures and watching the kids during free play. However, I will spare you the 148 photos that I took! Besides, I need to be really careful of posting pictures of other peoples children without having their permission first.
Here is a group shot of all the kids in the program. You can get an idea of how many were there. It is such a smaller group compared to last year. Much more manageable indeed! After the devotion and worship, they were separated into groups according to their grades.
Yes, you are seeing empty egg shells that have been rinsed. Don't worry, the eggs were not wasted. They were used for the womens breakfast on Saturday. The kids got to grind the egg shells because they are going to be used for chalk! I learn something new everyday!
There's Eli on the right!
Next they made sculpting clay. I missed the main ingredients, but i know that one of them was coffee grinds!! After you sculpt it, you leave it alone, and it eventually gets hard!
Not sure what he ended up making...lol.
Finally, this is the dough mixture for the last sculpting project! If I remember correctly, Veronica made a heart! Wouldn't you like sink your hands into that gooey mess? Oh, and the lighting in the room is terrible, so that is why some of my pictures came out funky!
Anyway, I'm pooped and it's only the first day! Next week, the theme will be drama, and then in a couple of more weeks we will have VBS!
It looks like so much fun!
My girls would have love that!! I would have love that!!!
Wow, looks awesome.
How amazing ... I'd love to be a kid again and play like that ... great stuff. Your photos are just awesome as they caught the moments of their little faces so intensely enjoying themselves.
Looks like they are having a great time:)
I know what you mean about taking a lot of pictures..lol. I took pics the last night of VBS and I ended up with over 200...lol.

What a fun filled week! I think it is great when kids explore their artsy side and see what they are capable of. We already know your one son has talent...I bet he is enjoying this camp.

What a great way for the kids to explore their creative side.
Wow! What a great camp! Sounds like lots of fun!

Is your friends blog open for the public? If so it would be great to follow along with her family.
