Setting the Stage – Big News (April 2018)

We have the awesome privilege of telling preschoolers that Jesus is God’s Son, He is alive, and He wants to be their friend forever. It truly is BIG NEWS!

For many of the preschoolers who will be celebrating Easter with us, this will not only be Big News, it will be NEW News as well! We get to tell the amazing story of Easter to so many for the very first time. Imagine preschoolers running around telling the BIG NEWS that Jesus is alive—now THAT would be an awesome Easter.

The Welcome Center & Hallway 
We’ve got some Big News to share and so many ways to do it! Fill your hallways with newspaper balls and megaphones hanging from the ceiling. Create newspaper bunting flags to drape across hallways or doorways. Use the Environment Art to fill the walls with images of Big News graphics. You could even “wallpaper” your walls, doors, or bulletin boards with newspaper pages. Use large red letters to spell out “BIG NEWS!” or “Extra! Extra! Read all about it!”

Use newspaper as your table covering at your welcome center and add newspaper flowers to your pens. Alternately, make your welcome center look like the set of a news show.

The stage
Set your stage up to look like a newsroom. Design a news desk and add a maps and charts to the walls. You can even set up a pretend or old video camera.
