Growing Groups Online: Favorite Things

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens, brown paper packages tied up with strings – these are a few of my favorite things.  These are great lyrics to a classic song, but I’m not sure how well they work in Children’s Ministry.  As Kids Ministry Leaders, we do all we can to make sure every time the children are present we have  well- staffed and well planned  sessions.  We enlist leaders and make sure they have all they need to teach.  We even enlist substitutes and make sure they are trained as well.  However, there are those times when our best plans fall through due to last minute emergencies and we have to walk in a room ready to teach preschoolers or children when we have had little to no time to prepare.  Watch this video to find out what I keep in my “Favorite Things Bag” so that I’m ready to teach on a moment’s notice.  I would love to hear what you keep in your “Favorite Things Bag.”
