Uptown Kids' Day
Sunday, September 28, 2014 - for 1st thru 6th grade
Uptown Kids day is the day when the shoppes of Uptown Kids are open! Every Connection Group becomes the shop that its room is named after. Each room has different activities, some which cost Uptown Kids Dollars, and some which pay you Uptown Kids dollars.
So what exactly will be taking place on the Uptown Kids Day? We will be opening up 10 different shops and experiences for 1st thru 6th grade, which includes 3 new experiences!
Every child starts the day with $10 Uptown Dollars. If you Bring your Bible add $10 more dollars, bring back the postcard for $5 more (it's a coupon) and if you bring a friend we will double your money (only 1x). And of course your friend gets the same amount as you!
Here is a glimpse of all the stores that will be open for Uptown Kids Day.
*** All money used is our Uptown Kids Currency
1. (NEW) Noah's Arcade - C201 with Kent and Eve Cook
In this Room kids will hear the story of Noah and the collection of animals. This room is all about 2x2. Kids will compete with a friend in a series of 3 different games. The winner of every game gets an animal sticker. If they can collect 2 every animal they win a huge prize. This room costs $5 per visit! (One game station per visit)
2. Meshach Shadrach and Abednego's Firehouse - C219 with Julie Webb and Mary Bishop
In this Room kids will hear the story of these amazing men, and get a chance to make some Shrinky Dink crafts. This room costs $5 per visit!
3. Hebrews Coffee Shop - C218 with Lackey's and Ellis'
We get our name straight from the Bible where He Brews! This coffee shop will have real coffee (grinds)! Each child will get the opportunity to create their own custom blend of coffee, by selecting the coffee beans of their choice and then grinding them up into the fine powder we know as coffee. All while learning about the heroes of faith found in the book of Hebrews. This room costs $5 per grind, but it will really get things brewing!
4. David's House of Blues - C217 with Jack and Jamie Wolff
Need a little music in your world? David's House of Blues can help. This shop will help you to build some awesome musical crafts (previous instruments have been a guitar, chirpers, drums, tambourines or even a didgeridoo). You get a chance not only to design your instrument, but also to play it and learn about the song book in the Bible (Psalms). Each craft completed will cost you $5. But beware this shop can only have 4-5 kids per craft at a time.
5. Esther's Boutique - C216 with Williams and Ilschner
Need a money making opportunity? Then Esther's is your place. In here you will learn about daily life for ancient Israelite women, as well as get to weave your own baskets and rugs. This room pays well, because for every few lines of weaving you complete you get paid!
Want the basket you just spent time weaving, or maybe you just want one to take home, the shop will sell completed baskets for $15 each. Limited quantity available and we can only sell finished baskets (even if it not the one you were working on!)
6. (Improved) Jonah's Seaside Café - C215 with David and Lorna Williams
Every shopping center needs a nice sit-down restaurant, But Jonah is not that place. In fact, poor Jonah is trapped in the belly of the fish and needs your help to get out...come through darts at the balloons and see if you can free Jonah. Every visit costs $5 and gets you 3 throws to free him from the belly of the Giant Fish!.
7. Adam's Rib Joint - C213 with Fielder and Glennie
Every good Barbeque place has something that makes them famous. And Adam's is no exception. They have the best homemade butter around. Probably because it is made by you. For your wonderful services you not only get the butter, but you get to eat your choice of pancake with it. For only $5 you can eat a pancake and make some butter too!
8. Manna From Heaven Bakery - C202 with Dan and Vanessa Ross
Yes the bakery was closed the last time we had Uptown Kids day, and it was sad. But Donut (do-not) fear as it has reappeared and it has a tasty treat. This room will be memorizing Luke 6:37 and frosting a favorite breakfast food- Donuts! It costs $5 per visit, but is so worth it.
9 and 10 . Daniel's Movie Den C212-213 with Scheffe and Lewis
Short on cash? Then this short films room is where to visit. No, we are not watching movies, but this room is no trivial pursuit. We are doing Bible Trivia, your choice of either Bible Drill and Skills Challenge or maybe you can hit a home run in Bible Baseball. Complete the challenge to receive $5.
11. The Hangar C203-204 with Piatt, Welch, Eckman, Hoover
You may not have known it, but our little Uptown has grown large enough to support its own airport. The hangar will have lots of fun with custom paper airplanes made by you. There are lots of planes designs to try out, but only one can make the right flight. Choose wisely to win big, but every plane made that flies will earn you $5 Uptown cash.
12. (BRAND NEW) Babel Control Tower - C210 with Ferringer and Klein
This room is so new to the Uptown Market it hasn't even gotten its signs up on the outside. But without the Control Tower all chaos would break loose. Kind of like what happened at Babel when the tower was smashed. This fun room Costs $5 Uptown dollars and you get to race a remote control car around the track. And if you happen to win, then you can walk out with $10.
13. (BRAND NEW) Pilate's Lounge - C205 with Snider and Scheffe
This room is also brand new to the Uptown Market. They moved up their open date just to join the fun! This is definitely the place that Pilate hangs out, and his favorite thing is Lounge Singers. In this room you pay $5 Uptown Kids Dollars to see if you could be the next Idol, or will Pilate wash his hands of your Voice? Winners get a special prize!
14. Specialty Items Pastor Charles
Have you been saving your Uptown dollars? Well there are a few hidden gems. For $50 you can purchase an Uptown Water Bottle, $80 an Uptown Kids Backpack, or $100 will get you both. And we have added a few new looks to our Bottle and Backpack Lineup.
15. Tax Collectors
Watch out for that pesky tax collector or you may become broke. But perhaps he or she could offer a refund for the right incentives!
As you can see our town will be very busy today. With a little of something for everyone. Thank you in advance to all my helpers, friends and teachers that have made this day a happen as it takes nearly 40 volunteers for Uptown Kids day to happen!
