Professor Playtime's Christmas Shop of Wonders: Full Skit Sample!

We tried to pull just a little bit of this Professor Playtime skit to show you, but every part is just too much fun to cut! So… we decided to share an entire skit. This skit is part of a lesson on patience. It has a toy shop, princesses, talking candy, a warrior riding a giraffe, and an astronaut with issues. So really, you need to see the whole thing! Enjoy!

Professor Playtime's Christmas Shop of Wonders: Christmas Music!

I love Christmas music! It gets me in the holiday spirit and brings back so many wonderful memories from my childhood. In fact music is one of the first things many people think of when they think about Christmas. Because music is such an essential part of Christmas, we decided that Professor Playtime needed more music than the typical Elevate series.

We wanted to stick to the classic Christmas carols that so many of us grew up with, but there was a challenge that we faced. The melodies of most Christmas songs are difficult to sing, especially for kids. So we began a tightrope walking process of staying true to the original song while making the melody easier for kids to sing along to. We love how they turned out! This series includes Joy to the World, Deck the Halls, Angels We Have Heard on High, Jingle Bells, and Silent Night. Check out our version of Angels We Have Heard on High!

Harold is M.I.A!

Funny e-mail that crossed my desk the other day…

To All Who Care About Puppets (and even those of you who don’t):

Harold is missing, last resting place unknown. He is an important member of the Dirty Jacket Gang and the Allaso Ranch Jr. cast.

If you have any knowledge of his whereabouts please call his gang at (#). Picture attached – The purple one in the middle is Harold.

Please, help restore this sweet but clumsy puppet to his gang… they miss him.

Has Harold been lost? Kidnapped? Or worse yet…been sold, recycled and made into a quilt? Can the Dirty Jacket Gang make it without him? Does this signal an outbreak of crime towards all things little?

All serious questions that must be asked when you work in Children’s Ministry!!
