Well I think we can all agree that it was a looong winter. One of the wonderful things about working with preschoolers is they never complain about the weather.
We made every snow craft possible. We painted snow, made snowflake hand puppets, snowman names, made edible snowmen from popcorn and marshmallows. We sang about snow and played in snow centres. It was a lot of snowy fun.

WELCOME TO A NEW YEAR. Yeah, we’re thinking the same thing—didn’t we just do this? 2019 is going to happen, whether you plan for it or not. But what if this next year didn’t just happen? What if you had a plan, some intentionality driving your times together? This activity is designed to help you do that. We want you to come up with a plan for your family, not ours, not someone else’s. But a plan that fits who your family is — what you like to do, who you want to be...

Participants came from 24 different churches, over several denominations, and some even came from Alberta, the Lower Mainland, and other parts of BC...
