I heard about this from an AD forever ago, and I finally did it. Because parents of junior high kids run their kids’ schedule, we all know its important to get WyldLife info into parents’ hands. This year, I ordered magnets from http://www.custommagnetsdirect.com/Rectangle_Square_Magnets that have the year’s club schedule, website, and team leader contact info. This way, it can be thrown on the fridge where parents can be reminded of WyldLife events for the year. All I had to do was upload a photo and the magnets look great.
1. Leader panel
This is mostly a replacement for the club talk. For more details see this post, complete with cards you can print out.
2. Senior led club
For this club we simply hand the club over to the seniors and say “you got it!” We make sure there are some junior leaders working on most of it. We ask one or two seniors to give their testimony at the end of the club. They always love this, just be sure to give them enough time to work on it, especially with how busy they get near graduation.
3. Best-of club
For this club we make a poster and put it out a few weeks in advance. Kids then vote on their favorite games and skits from the year. Then you simply re-do the ones that are their most favorite. You can find more details here, including a poster you can use.
