Good Ideas, Church, Youth Group, Youth Ministry, Sunday Schools, Kids, Prayer Band, Prayer Craft, Construction Paper
great idea- Prayer Bands - we use prayer craft sticks in our class so everyone is able to pray for different national, state, local leaders, school leaders, missionaries...each day
Prayer bands would be a great way to help children remember who to pray for each week. Use strips of construction paper and close with a sticker. Easy! ...Not just for kids, but for myself too!!
Prayer bands would be a great way to help children remember who to pray for each week. Use strips of construction paper and close with a sticker. Easy! Sunday school
Prayer bands would be a great way to help the congregation pray for the staff and campers throughout the summer with camp going on at the church!
A good idea for small group. Maybe one week during November.
Sometimes we have to think outside of the box

TAGXEDO: interesting site that appears to be in the building stage. Like a "Wordle" but takes the words you gather and puts them into a specific shape like an animal, famous person, yourself?

I think this site is awesome. I really want to incorporate it more once I get my own classroom.
Create word clouds in shapes of kids pictures (or a premade shape from the site). Click on "create" at top, click "Load" on left side, type in the words under "enter text". Have them come up with characteristics that describe who they are :)
2nd Grade with Mrs. Wade: Tagxedo is the new Wordle!
Cool website where you can upload their own photos and add words that describe them! Or you can use the already uploaded photos of famous people, animals, plants, etcetera to introduce concepts and units.
Tagxedo - A great site for generating word clouds in shapes! I thought maybe my kids could do this for a sort of "report" and an art project at the same time on people or things we are learning about.

Maybe a bulletin board for youth group
Prayer requests- small groups
so cute for sunday school. They could write a prayer and then we'd pray later for all the prayers on the prayer board
For the Youth Room @ Church - could just use a bulletin board, too.

Before I die... Community art project by Candy Chang.
Before I die I want to make inspiring interactive street art ((This piece by Candy Chang in New Orleans))
With help from old and new friends, Candy Chang turned the side of an abandoned house in her neighborhood in New Orleans into a giant chalkboard where residents can write on the wall and share what is important to them. Before I Die is an interactive public art project that transforms neglected spaces into constructive places where we can discover the hopes and aspirations of the people around us. Share your dreams, too…

milk jug igloo - class idea, if only my other half would let me hoard that many milk cartons!
