After our travel through space, the children shared Scripture they had memorized that talked about the sun, moon, stars, earth, etc. Next was the music. Jonathon played his guitar while the children sang a song called Praise the Lord from the Heavens. They did great and Benaiah went up there and stood with them. I tried to get him to memorize some Scripture to have a part in the program, but he is a one of a kind little guy and I decided it would be easier to just not give him a part and keep his siilyness out of it. Hopefully next year he can have a purposeful part, because he did end up joining in this year. It was good and controlled though. : )
After the program we had some food. The food was all named after space things. We had fun thinking of foods to go along with our theme. We had Venus Veggies, Asteroids (meatballs), Meteorites (grapes), Sun Oranges, Crescent Moon chicken salad sandwiches, Milky Way candy bars, Moon Pies (oatmeal cream cookies), Star shaped cookies, Moon Phase Cookies (dipped oreos decorated like the different phases of the moon), and Shooting Star Lemon Pudding Shooters. And Rocket Fuel to drink. It was all so delicious!
My parents always bring something along to surprise the children. This year they created this super fun photo prop. It was a hamburger space ship that glowed in the dark. Below they are trying it out with our good friends the Troyers.
