I. Overview of the Junior Kids Day


A. What is Junior Kids Day?

2
Junior Kids Day is a 4 hour activity day for junior Kids for
Christ (KFC) members ages 4 to 8 years old. It is during this activity that the
children of this age group are formally accepted and committed to the Kids
for Christ program of Couples for Christ (CFC).

B. What are the objectives of the Junior Kids Day?

1. To provide KFC members a faith experience through fun-filled


activities in the company of their friends.
2. To provide a one-on-one activity between parent and child.
3. To give the children a clear identity as Kids for Christ and a genuine
sense that they belong to a good program.

II. Planning for the Junior Kids Day


A. Who are involved in the Junior Kids Day?

1. KFC members, ages 4 to 8. Age grouping for the activities are: 4 to


6 years old, and 7 to 8 years old.
2. Facilitators for the activities are KFC age group cooordinators, or
CFC volunteers, or older KFC members (aged 11 to 12 years old). The ideal
ratio of number of children per facilitator is 5:1.
3. The service team may consist of CFC members and older KFC
members (aged 10 to 12 years old). They are in charge of registration,
serving snacks, and physical arrangements.
4. The parents of the children participating in the Junior Kids Day are
also required to be present for the one-on-one and pray-over session. They
are also requested to write a letter to their child, which they will give and read
together during the session.

B. What other matters should be considered for the Junior Kids
Day?

1. Venue: The place should be large enough to be able to comfortably


accomodate the children. A blackboard or whiteboard will be helpful for the
activities.
2. Number of Children: Maximum number of participants is 35.

3. Time: It is suggested that the Junior Kids Day is held in the
morning so that the children are more alert and active. 7:30 a.m. to 12:00
noon is normally a good time for the activities.
4. Fee: Fees may be collected for venue, snacks and materials.
