A Time In History


Our church hosted a "Reformation Party". The children were to dress in that time period and learn about that time in history. From "Pin the Thesis" to the Church Door to "Martin Luther's golf course"...the kids really learned a lot and enjoyed dressing up!

p.s. Go check out Memoirs of a Southern Domestic Goddess...she is having a giveaway. She has some of the cutest stuff from frames to super-cute clipboards!
