You probably aren't supposed to ask questions on a blog, but I thought this would be the best place to ask.
I am putting together kids classes and need some ideas. It is difficult for me to come up with things that are fun, for children other then age four. I tend to think of things that would be fun for Benjamin to do but not fun for a 12 year old. I have two classes, from ages 8-10 and 11-12. I am teaching on the creation and Adam and Eve's sin and on Cain and Able and probably on down through Noah maybe even to Joseph. If anyone has ANY ideas please share them. They don't even necessarily have to correspond with the themes. I have a few ideas nothing relating to the lesson, I am just looking for something. I have tried to look for curriculum for these age groups, but it always seems like curriculum written for the age group, is written in language that is too difficult.
Games or crafts are both welcome.
I also wanted to ask anybody out there, mothers of these ages or teachers, if making figures from clay and painting them would be boring, or beads or making things with magnets. Boys and girls are different too. I can't really see 12 year old boys interested in making necklaces and bracelets with beads. Then again I could be wrong.
