One of the main things I do over here in the Philippines is work with the nursery kids. Over the past two weeks I have been getting close to them and doing lots of fun stuff! I brought a bunch of craft supplies over to do various activities with the kids. The first craft we made where little sheep with construction paper and cotton balls. They loved it! The glue and cotton ball combination made it pretty messy but that made it more fun. We related the sheep craft to the verse John 10:3, “The sheep hear his voice, and He calls His own sheep by name and leads them out.” The second craft we did was foam door hangers. They put foam stickers spelling out their names and other shapes on the door hangers. This craft was not so successful…after they made them; all they wanted to do was peel all the stickers off! But at least they had a good time with it. The most recent craft we did was alligators! I had them color the printed alligators at one sitting, and the next glue blue tissue paper on construction paper to look like water. All of the alligators turned out to be rainbow alligators…which I think made them look even better! I have had fun creating things with the kids and building their skills to help them in the future. I have also been reminded of how short toddler’s attention spans are…the kids have for sure been teaching me to be patient!
