Walk-in activity - NT: Life of Jesus 03: Call of John the Baptist - From eating sweets to the barber's chair
A fun and easy-to-do walk-in activity
The children can choose how wet they want to get diving for sweets, and there are leaders ready to do their hair afterwards...!
This idea is part of a complete Sunday school lesson on the story of John the Baptist being called by God.
View the idea below...
What you need:
various bowls of water
hair gel and hair spray
combs and brushes
There are different water bowls in the room and two "barber's chairs". The water has a different depth in each bowl. The deeper the bowl, the more sweets are placed on the bottom.
Each child who comes in can choose whether they want to eat sweets and from which bowl. If they only want to wet their mouth and nose, they can take one sweet from the shallow bowl. If they stick their whole head in a deep bowl, getting their hair wet, they can take three sweets. If they want to wear diving goggles while searching for sweets on the bottom, that's possible too!
After getting their sweets, they immediately receive a dry towel for their head and can sit in the barber's chair. Here, there are two or more helpers who will dry their hair with a hairdryer, and then set their hair with gel or hairspray.
This activity is a fun way to engage children while they wait for the programme to start. It could also serve as an icebreaker or introduction to the theme of the day.
