Sorry for the trouble But I posted alittle help post I think it was a couple a months ago or so, having computer trouble and now having a new one, :^O I was going to check on the post but I could not find it did a search but it came up with nothing ,so I figured it never went through or I didn't do the search right.To make a long story short I am asking again. Being put in charge of a youth group,in our church(and it is just starting)so the ages vary from 6 years old to 14,how do I find crafts ideas for this age group sometimes there only 11 kids or sometimes there are only 5.Any help is grateful. and sorry for the inconvience
There you go: the thread where you asked that question before.
It would be helpful if you used the subject header of the message to describe what your message is about; that way, you can find it more easily when you come back. For example: "Help! Need craft ideas for youth group meetings!"
As it is, I remembered the thread, and didn't need the search engine. It was the 5th or 6th topic down, authored by Buggsy. And the title was: "Help!" ;\
I have three seasons: GROW, *SEW*, and SEED CATALOG!

Plaster masks. they are perfect for many ages. I am a street youth worker. I have made them for my drop in nites. Purchase the plaster strips from the drug store. Make sure to vaseline everyones face, have them partner up and lie down. Each person puts the strips on their partner, you need about 3 layers for strength, otherwise its too fragile. after about 15 mins it can be removed to dry overnite and then decortated however the children please,paints, glitter, feathers etc.
Family Fun Magazine has a nice web site at www.FamilyFun.com. It has a lot of ideas. Also, check your local craft stores. They have craft classes that make things all the time, and they often have instructions you can pick up. You might be able to adapt something to your youth group.
Here is one I'm going to arrange for the play group I manage around Earth Day. Have each memeber bring a paper egg carton. Fill the carton's cups with seed starting mix. Then plant bean or pea seeds, water, and instruct them to set in a sunny window or on top of the fridge (with a tray underneath) and keep moist until they sprout. Then the whole thing can be planted in the garden, carton and all. Just remember to use PAPER cartons, NOT STYROFOAM OR PLASTIC. You can also use dixi cups. Believe it or not I got the idea from a cartoon!
well being a kid I know thatwe like to stick our feet in stuff . Something that's stickey or slimey Oh but how long does it have to dry? If you have an hour it might be a little short....... I go to bible school with my g-ma and I help the little kids with their crafts and they have a great time
