With “Weird Animals,” children will learn about some of God’s most creative creations by participating in memorable Bible-learning activities, singing catchy songs, playing teamwork-building games, making and digging into yummy treats, experiencing cool Bible adventures, collecting Bible Memory Buddies to remind them they are one of a kind, and testing out Sciency-Fun Gizmos they’ll take home and play with all summer long. Plus, kids will learn to look for evidence of God all around them through something called God Sightings. Each day concludes with The Tail End a celebration that gets everyone involved in living what they’ve learned. Family members and friends are encouraged to join in daily for this special time at 11:45 a.m.
