Hot! Hot! Hot!

Hey Y'all! Thanks for stopping by. I just had to share my latest project with you.

A little background to the story... I teach kids church every few weeks (4 year old to 4th grade...huge range) I always try to play games that help incorporate the message we are teaching. This week we are discussing Moses and the burning bush, the focus is on listening and obeying. The games in the teacher guide, I felt, were lacking a little. So I search the plethora of useless information I have stored in my brain over the years and decided to reinvent a game that I used when I was a candle demonstrator.

Basically, a leader reads a story and every time a certain word is said, a favor (or several depending on the size of the group) gets passed. Usually, the one left holding the favor when the story is over gets to keep it. I have enough candy so that all of the kids will get a piece and the ones holding the favor get to open and share.

I decided to make little fire favors (burning bush theme and They are 3 pieces of chocolate wrapped in tissue paper and tied with red and gold curling ribbon. The little flame is from the Create a Critter Cricut cartridge and I layered it on a SU scallop circle punch of black card stock. I threw them together quickly, but I think they turned out great. I can't wait to have fun with the kids in the morning.

Thanks for stopping by. I have several posts scheduled for this week, so I'll see you soon!
