I can day: kick the can game

As part of our “I Can Day” the children went outside to play a very simple version of “Kick the Can” game.

We started the game by having all the children take a can from our circletime bag full of cans then go outside and stand on the line. Then we had each child take a turn kicking his or can. The cans often rolled a bit after they were kicked and the children liked to see how far the cans would roll.

Every child took a turn to kick his or her own can. We discovered that the smaller the can, the harder it was to aim that foot just right to give it a good kick.

But all the children were able to give their cans a good kick and watch them roll away. After every child had a turn, we invited all the children to line up once more and then they all gave their cans one more big kick all at the same time.

Stay tuned for the creative side of “I Can Day” in my next post…

Every time I think I know everything I need to know about teaching young children, God says, "Hold on a minute!" and gives me a new challenge.

Let me tell ya...

With each new challenge that you overcome, you will find yourself better equipped and more passionate about teaching young children.

God didn't call wimps to lead, teach, or care for His children. Nope, he has high expectations, so get ready. You will have to give your very best but after teaching for over 30 years, I can tell you that it is a wonderful and rewarding journey.

Whenever your calling feels hard, just remember, 'He who began a good work in you (and in the children you serve) will be faithful to complete it.'
