Sweet friends from my CC campus arranged the most fun mid-cycle family review night. It had to be rescheduled once due to weather, but we were still able to get it in basically midway through the year. Sorry, I’m sharing it a little late here. But, it could be a fun end of year night too! I was so impressed by what these ladies created. With their permission, I’m excited to share the ideas with you.
Throughout the fellowship hall/gym of the church where we meet, games were set up and manned by parent volunteers for the all the students to rotate through. It was fun to have the dads “doing CC” with us for a night! Families signed up in advance, so teams could be formed and the right number of supplies provided. Teams were generally assigned by ages, so each game could be tailored as necessary. If you’re interested in creating an event like this for your campus, here are the games we played:
I’m not sure who enjoyed this game more, the students riding or the dads pulling. Ha!
The parent competitors, two dads, were so gracious in giving silly answers against the younger students. It was funny to watch the young competitors’ faces when the parents gave a ridiculous answer!
We actually had to switch this game a bit when hula hoops couldn’t be located in time. We used boxes for hoops. But, I left the original directions, because hula hoops sound a bit more fun!
We finished off the night with the Timeline Limbo! Every student participated in this event for a ticket. There wasn’t anything special about this Limbo, except that the kids marched around to the tune of the Timeline Song. They liked it and it was pretty funny to watch too!
Throughout the night the students collected their tickets in a baggie marked with their name. The night ended with the students using their tickets to purchase fun, little prizes and everyone enjoying snacks and treats brought in to share. I don’t think the students would’ve minded even having no prizes, because they had such fun playing the games.
I know other communities have fun ways to review. What are some things you’ve done at your campus?
