Wordless Wednesday: October 31, 2018 (w/linky) - Venture Club Harvest Party

Our church has Venture Club that the children really enjoy going to. Each fall they have a harvest festival where the children dress up as Bible characters and have to come up with three clues for their friends to guess who they are. Then they do a craft, play games, and have snack. The church has been doing this for years. I still remember when my older children used to go.

The children usually come up with their own costumes, as I'm not really good at it. Amelia and Harold worked together this year, but Tabitha and Hannah came up with their own ideas.

Costume time

Amelia and Harold

1- How long can you tread water?
there were two more, but I can't remember them right now.



1- My husband's name starts with E, and rhymes with my name.
2- I prayed for something for a long time.
3- God finally gave me what I wanted after I promised to give it to Him.



1- I saved the Jews.
2- I became queen.

Craft time

Game time:

They are given around 10 or 15 tickets which they can use for the different games. 

There is Barracuda Bay which is quite popular. They fish over the curtain and are awarded surprise prizes. 

A ticket will get a child five pennies to toss at these tables. They get to keep whatever their pennies touch.

There was a nerf gun shooting game.

Did I mention Barracuda Bay was popular?

And a duck pond where each duck had a number which represented how many pieces of candy they got to choose out of the bowl.

And Bobbing for Bananas (with bare feet)

There was also Pin the Stem on the Pumpkin, which I don't have a shot of without other Venture Club children in.

Then they went upstairs to hear a story about a pumpkin.

Looking forward to seeing your Wordless (or not so wordless) Wednesday posts this week.

No button currently, and there won't be one until I can figure it out seeing as Photobucket has changed things. Feel free to still share the picture in place of the button on your Wordless Wednesday post or in a list of Wordless Wednesday linkies. Just link it to my Wordless Wednesday permalink please.
