Play time... this almost got accidentally pinned under my boozy life... which would maybe help me follow the rules better :)
A similar reminder might be good to have in an all-age Godly Play classroom :)

Tutorial: Secret to Cutting Felt. I didn't know about this method! I just freehand ... Freezer paper! This will help w patterns for the quiet book project.
Cutting felt using freezer paper as a template (don't think we have this same stuff here in Oz) but also pinning mostly for the idea of turning an easel into a felt board
Tutorial: Secret to Cutting Felt (wax paper) I didn't know about this method! Also how to make the felt board / easel.
How To Cut Felt- It's hard to cut felt and to draw your pattern on it. The secret is Freezer Paper! Trace your pattern onto the paper. Iron it onto the felt on the highest setting without steam until it stays. Iron against the papery feeling side, the shiny side goes against the felt. Cut out your pattern with scissors and then peel off the freezer paper.
"HOW TO CUT FELT" TUTORIAL: to cut felt easily, iron the felt onto freezer paper first. You iron on the side that feels shiny and the papery feeling side should be on top. Here's the great part: draw or trace your patterns onto the freezer paper first, or even put the freezer paper into your printer to make repeating elements or more precise designs, eg, print out the entire alphabet (use outline mode), or mass-produce shapes and icons used in children's crafts. Works great for fabrics, also!
Godly Play at Children's Dallas BEAUTIFUL! This is absolutely wonderful. Oh how I would love to experience Godly Play in this setting. How do I get in on this? (The only moment of discomfort in this video was when poor Moses got his head pinched. Hehe. I'm sure Moses would forgive that.)

This [peace table/area] is where we will go when we are feeling upset. You may sit quietly and watch the grains of sand flow through the timer. When we are feeling upset with another person, we can invite them to sit with us here. When we both are sitting, the person who did the inviting will speak first, in a calm and quiet voice, and explain why they are feeling upset. When they are done, they pass [the peace object] to the other person, who may then speak in response. (Stacy Burnett)

So cool. The story of creation being told by an American storyteller in Guatemala. Trish, the storyteller said, "...the creation story was epic, transcending all language barriers!" Just beautiful. So honored to be working with Trish and all the folks at DCC.
You're not going to find a better example of how to treat children with respect. Watch the way he immediately goes to the child's eye level. Watch the intent with which he listens and responds. Just beautiful. Watch to the end, but make sure you have a tissue close by.

Love this labyrinth idea! Creative Children's Ministry: Finger labyrinths to help kineistic kids focus during prayer. Ideal would be a wooden version they can follow with their eyes shut as they pray.
