Kids Big Adventure 2016 at Ballymoney

starter-activity-13Saturday 8th October was the first of our Kids Big Adventure 2016 venues.

Our theme this year was “The Big Demolition” and we had a very rhythmic afternoon inspired by our special guest James from “Fun with Drums.”

James led a warm up session and a workshop for each age group and he went down a storm. The kids were great at keeping in time and following all James instructions and showed themselves to be very rhythmic indeed – a few future drummers in the making definitely!dance-song-2

As well as Fun with Drums we had our usual mix of on stage songs drama and puppets. The drama this year told the story of Joshua and the walls of Jericho and some of the kids volunteered to get dressed up in costumes and join us to help bring the story to life.

We also had a very groovy dance song called “God put rhythm in you.” Aimee and Victoria taught us all some cool moves and we strutted our stuff in style.craft-5

As well as the on stage programme we had a musical instrument making workshop and we made a range of drums, castanets and maracas!!

Our huge thanks to Kasala Gilchrist and the team at Ballymoney who hosted us so brilliantly and took complete charge of the leaders’ café – psssst leaders -the home made tray bakes are definitely worth the journey.

On Saturday 15th we will be in Glenavy parish and we look forward to seeing many of you there!
