Primary Meet the Teacher Breakfast

For those of you who work in the Primary at church, here is a darling idea from Bee in Our Bonnet. If you don’t have time to plan it for this year, save it for next year!

Invitations: Make them into necklaces so they won’t lose them before they get home and show their parents.

While they were arriving, they colored a paper doll of them and their teacher.
The theme was that their teachers are here to serve them, so they did. Each class had a table and their teacher was their waiter/waitress. They took their order from this little menu.  menus

For the rest of the activity, they broke up into classes and did some get-to know you activities. Then we returned together and played a relay game. In the game they had to carry balloons on a huge serving tray across the gym into a trash bin. The balloons flew off if they went too fast or if they didn’t balance the tray. It was crazy but the kids loved it.

How fun is that?!?
Here are even more primary ideas from Bee In Our Bonnet:

New Binder Covers: Given at the beginning of each year for the teachers and leadersbinder covers

Spotlight Gift: Each week we spotlight a child and learn more about them. We wrapped up a miniature flashlight (from oriental trading) and put on this little poem. They get this little token to take home after they are featured. I can’t take credit for the idea, but I still wanted to pass it along.
