Garden Camp Day Two

Schedule for the second day: Sky Proverbs 3:19 The Lord set the sky in place.

Opening 10 min
God created the sky. There are many different parts of the sky. The clouds in the sky can be different shapes, sizes and colors.

Art Tent 20 m
Take blue construction paper and drop white paint on it. Fold it in half and unfold it to see what your sky looks like and make wind ribbons.
Supplies: plastic spoons or eyedroppers, blue construction paper, white washable tempera paint, smocks and a table covering
Cover the table and have the children wear smocks. Gove each child a piece of blue construction paper in half and then unfold it. Let each child use an eyedropper or spoon to drop white paint onto one side of the fold. Have them refold the paper. Show them how to smooth over the paper with his or her hand. Open the paper flat to see the cloud shapes made by paint.

Game 20 m
Parachute fun. Bouncing balls, making waves, etc.
Supplies: parachute or large sheet, beach ball
Lay the parachute in the ground. Have the children stand around the edge, evenly spaced. Talk about what they have learned about the air – you can’t see it but you can feel it when it blows. Tell the children they are going to create and play with air. Have the children hold the edges of the parachute firmly. Encourage the children to work together to life the parachute up and down. Add the ball after they have gotten the hang of moving the parachute.

Drama Tent 20 m
Pretend Picnic and playing with our wind ribbons.
Supplies: blanket, plastic foods, glasses, dishes, napkins, basket, stuffed animals or dolls
Set out the materials. Encourage the children to have a pretend picnic (something they can do when the sun is shining in the sky.)

Worship Tent 20 m
Pictures of different skies, birds and airplanes.
Supplies: variety of pictures of the sky, real bird or stuffed animal bird, toy plane
Teacher Talk: God created the sky.
Place the pictures, bird, and airplane on a table. Encourage the children to look at the pictures and objects.
Say: These are some things we can see in the sky. Some of the things we see were made by people, like the airplane. But birds and clouds and the sun were all made by God. God created the sky and the things in the sky.
Pray: Thank you, God, for the sky and all the wonderful things in the sky. Amen.

Snack 20 m
