Your Sunday school class was going great! Jesus had fed the 5,000 and Jaxon was tracking right along with the story. The lesson was complete and time was up, but as you listened for the pitter patter of parental feet on the stairs you heard…NOTHING…but the pastor’s faint voice from the sanctuary. The sermon had gone long.
What should you do when you’re out of lesson material before the Sunday school session ends? Rather than allowing chaos to ensue, try these ideas.

I’m on the children’s church teaching team at my church. I teach the younger group, which range from 3-6 years old. They are hilarious, sweet, and sometimes just plain squirrely! If something hits them funny it can be so easy for them to get distracted and before I know it they aren’t paying attention anymore!
“1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10! Ready or not, here I come!” Without fail, whenever I just start playing “hide and seek” in class without giving any warning, I have got the kids’ attention! What am I going to do next? Could it be fun?
“Why are you eating toilet paper?!” It seemed like a reasonable question, but my toddler didn’t bother to answer as she crammed another piece of (clean) toilet paper into her mouth.
