It is time again for another Kidmin tour! Ryan, the girls and I recently took a super-fun trip to Ft Myers, FL. We had a week to enjoy just being the four of us with no computers, work, or phones. Each day consisted of sleeping late, eating breakfast, riding the golf cart, heading to the beach or pool, ice cream pit stop, some cheesy tourist destination, dinner at some local seafood place, and maybe another ice cream pit stop. We repeated the same wonderfully boring schedule for seven days, although we did take time to stop in at McGregor Baptist and tour their great Kidmin space.
A special thanks to Rita Massey, the Children’s director, for letting us come and take these pictures. Rita has been a long time KidzMatter customer and we appreciate her! (Okay, that was a shameless plug for KidzMatter.)
Alright, enough intro chit-chat, let’s get to the pictures — the real reason you are reading this post
The children’s ministry is housed in this building and couldn’t have a better name!
This is the check-in area for preschool age kids. Notice my “helper” checking things out:)
This ginormous, adorable, blue whale sits in a pool and spouts water. How fun is that?! The beach theme is fits right into the church’s sunny Florida location.
The resource room is extra-large with lots and lots of storage. I was envious:)
Another view of the resource room
The nursery check-in area is super large so that there are no-traffice jams on Sunday morning!
Play area that is easily accessible from the rooms on this half of the nursery.
Another play area and also another view of the nursery check-in area.
Love these things!
A peak into one of the preschool classrooms.
Even the hallways are bright and cheerful and follow the ocean/beach theme.
Great display board!! These photos can be easily changed to promote a topic or upcoming event.
Preschool worship room
The preschoolers sit on the floor inside the taped areas. This keeps a nice walkway for workers and any preschoolers needing a potty break (can you tell I have a 2 year old right now, who else says “potty” except for the mother of a preschooler?)
Another peak at a preschool classroom
I like that this isn’t a regular boring bulletin board. The chalkboard paint is lots of fun and also makes this easy to change for events or seasons.
A preschool play area called the Noah’s Ark room. It was made so the kids would feel like they are playing right inside the ark.
More Noah’s ark fun
Checkout the fun flooring pattern!
What a great reminder to parents as they leave to talk to their kids about the spiritual discoveries they made! (Can you tell at this point my girls were ready to be out the door and hit the beach again!)
I hope you enjoyed the tour and found a few ideas to use in your own ministry!
