Summer Holiday Activities For Christian Kids

(Or to give this post it’s full title, “Summer Holiday Activities For Christian Parents to entertain Christian Kids” *)

Well, we’re deep into the Summer Holidays now! Its time for the initial excitement to die down, and the feeling of a “never ending” holiday to set in. Are you a Christian parent running out of ideas for things to do? Here’s our list of Summer holiday activities for Christian kids…

  1. Look up all the details of all the Church Holiday Club, go to all of them.
  2. Enlist help from the kid in building a wooden chapel in your garden.
  3. Barbecue. But pray for Heavenly Fire to rain down and light it.
  4. Build some Jesus Lego. 
  5. Paint the above chapel.
  6. Pray for patience. Then go to a soft play. 
  7. Practice acting skills by acting Bible Stories. Acting out “Danial and The Lions Den” while visiting the Zoo is a possible choice.
  8. Take a family pilgrimage to the nearest Christian Festival. Or pub. Whichever is nearest. 
  9. If in England, build a full sized Noahs Ark in the garden. Actually any sized boat could be helpful during the August storms.
  10. Act out Bible scenes**…

*The obvious alternative title being “Good Luck”

** Probably also best you don’t act out Abraham and Isaac…

How To Stay Cool in Church

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but its hot. Well its hot in Devon anyway.

I imagine its also hot elsewhere.

Its also hot in Churches around England.

So how do you deal with Church, when you turn up and its massively hot?

Here are our ten ideas of how to stay cool in church when its massively hot. 

  1. Open the flipping windows!
  2. Have a mass baptism service. Just get everyone into the baptism pool. If nothing else it will cool everyone down.
  3. Give Pizza Hut a call, get a ice cream delivery, yes – to be delivered during the service.
  4. Relocate the church service to the nearest mountain top / river bed / supermarket freezer cabinets.
  5. Give out emergency water bottles.
  6. Install cold showers at the back of the church.
  7. Decrease the chance of any one fainting during the service and just edit EVERYTHING down!
  8. Giant air fans. Everywhere!
  9. Swap out bread and wine for ice cream.
  10. Naked church.

Any other ideas?
