‘Follow the Clues’ was the theme of this year’s Children's Holiday Club. Close to a hundred children were registered each day and they definitely brought their energy.
In the drama we watched as Detective Dexter Duck and Constable Clooney led us through their investigation, trying to follow the clues and discover who can make us friends with God again. Each day the duo found clues that led them to the Bible where an artfully depicted character was ready to share their story and point us towards Jesus.
This year we had great music and the songs have been a lot of fun to sing (all day, every day, and probably for at least another month)! Alongside the drama and music we had The Memory Verse Bandit visiting each day to teach us about the memory verse for the week (1 John 4:9). The groups also solved some tricky Detective’s Challenges involving puzzles, teamwork and quizzes.
The children spent time in their groups learning more about the Bible and Jesus as well as enjoying some delicious cakes!
Each day the kids got to choose between sports and craft. In craft they got to make fingerprint paintings, periscopes, shaker games and clay detective’s dogs. In the sports the kids played various games such as giant noughts and crosses, football, assault course and many more!
The week culminated with a family games night with over 130 people signed up! We had tasty hotdogs and cakes while playing a wide variety of team games.
All in all it has been an exciting week with extreme levels of enthusiasm. The kids left each day smiling and wanting to come back for more!
