Creating a Sunday School Tent

Today Penny and I met to redo our Sunday School area. We were on our 3rd plan of how to update this space:

We found these bright jewel tone fabrics at a great price, and made them into panels to make 2 sides of a tent:

However, as soon as we began fiddling, we realized there was no way our 3rd plan was going to work either. Luckily, Penny brought along her Favorite Handyman (to whom she happens to be married) and he got us all squared away. Instead of wall-to-wall bars to hang our curtain panels, he built a pvc structure:

We hung the fabric:
And voila!

I think the kids are really going to like it.

We had been planning to jump into our first rotation tomorrow (Computers). But we were so excited about our new space and our new curriculum that we thought the children might be as well. So we punted (AGAIN) and decided to spend tomorrow doing an introduction to WorkshopCycles and the elements in includes, like Shepherds, Workshop Leaders, Journaling, and the different workshops.

Wow, what kid wouldn't like it. I like it. I am coming. Phooey on rotation classes. Kids need to experience God and sometimes the rotation class will work and sometimes not. Let us know how it went.
And thank God for handy men hubby's.
Welcome to revgalblogpals. Hope you have fun and more creative times with us.

Hello! It's nice to "meet" you. I've read a few of your previous posts and I feel we're kindred spirits. I, too, listened to Rabbi Sasso's interview on Speaking of Faith and found it wonderful and thought-provoking. I have to little girls and am challenged by my 4 year-old's deep theological questions. And I also am a huge fan of Madeleine L'Engle and C.S. Lewis. Anyway, welcome to Revgals.
