Pie in the Face!

It is a commonly known fact among children’s pastors that sooner or later you are going to end up with pie in your face. If not figuratively, then literally!

Sunday was a super fun day in Kid’s Church! Our Virtue of the Month for January was “Resourcefulness” defined as “Using what you have to get the job done.” We decided to spend the month planning a ‘block party’ in Kids Church, but not spending money – using what we had to get the job done. The room was filled with fun games that were all fun but simple games using stuff from around the house. Shooting straws at targets, paper airplanes, rubber bands and Styrofoam cups, etc. Even bowling with a hamster in his hamster ball. (download video!)

But the kids favorite, of course, was “Throwing a Pie at Pastor Karl!” In order to get throw at pie at their beloved pastor, they had to get a ‘Pie Throwing Ticket’ by bringing something to the block party – food, decorations, games, etc. It was a messy, but lots of fun:




The 2nd favorite booth for the kids was HAMSTER BOWLING!!
(Don’t worry, no hamsters were harmed in the making of or playing of this game!)

  1. So how many pies did you end up getting in the face?

  2. Not sure, i kinda lost track, and a lot of kids missed. maybe 15-20 actually hit me in the face.

    it was a lot of fun!! and i had to do it for two services and clean up for the adult class i am teaching between kids churches! see: http://www.vcbkids.org/rocksolidkids

  3. Fun! Now, the question… were they whipped cream pies or shaving cream?? I wimp out and go for the easy clean up of shaving cream… it burns the eyes, though!!!

  4. Sounds like an incredibly awesome time and a great tie – in to resourcefulness!!!

  5. National Association for the Prevention of Hamster Abuse

    Better watch your back… we are out to do unto others the way they do unto their rodents…

    Beware of ROUS’s headed your way!
