A couple weeks ago the storyteller was ill and called me on Saturday to teach for him on Sunday. For some reason I thought he said it was for the 1st and 2nd grade. The lesson was the Battle of Jerico. So I got a bunch of "duplo legos" and took them in Sunday morning to build a model of the walls and there was the 5th & 6th graders! After they saw the shock on my face I told them the truth, that I thought they were going to be six and seven years old. So, I went ahead with the same plans and they LOVED duplo legos. We had a great time. They were very understanding. I love 5th and 6th graders!!

That's a great story and it's a great lesson for all of us to learn. Older kids and youth will participate in an occasional activity for younger children if you admit ahead of time that it is really for younger kids. We just showed a Veggie Tales movie to our youth group. If we had just shown the movie, we would have gotten groans, but we told them what we were doing and set up the lesson so that they were reading the scripture and critically analyzing the movie's portrayal of the story. They loved it! The same is true for software on computers.
