Recently, I had the chance to
get some much needed quality time with the hubs travel to Appleton, WI with Ryan so he could speak at Appleton Alliance Church for a Kidmin event the church was hosting. I loved meeting Kris Smoll, the church’s Discovery Land Director and touring their current building as well as their soon to be completed addition. To say that I was totally amazed at their facilities is an understatement. As I was touring the building I took a few photos with my phone (sorry for the poor quality) for inspiration for now and in the future. I thought that some others might enjoy seeing the pictures and it gave me the idea to start a new feature here on the blog. About once a month I am going to feature a church tour here on the blog. Extra-small, small, mid-size, large, mega-large, I think that we can find inspiration and ideas from each. I would love to feature your church, please email me if you are interested (beth at kidzmatter dot com). Any church featured here on the blog will receive some extra-special KidzMatter goodies in the mail:)
So, here is the first official installment of Kidmin Spaces and Places!
The church has a giant multi-purpose open space with different centers set up. I love the Bible-themed decorating and the hands-on learning centers.
Yes, your eyes are not deceiving you, that is a huge sand pit!! Is your mind in overload thinking about all of the possibilities?!?!?!
These craft supplies were on a really neat-looking cart (sorry, didn’t get a picture of the cart) that could be taken wherever needed.
This was the MOST organized resource room I have ever been in! Seriously.
This chart was posted throughout the room and has all of the resources listed with their location. I wasn’t kidding, seriously organized!!
Hope you enjoyed this short Kidmin Spaces and Places tour and picked up a new idea or two for your ministry!
