Wednesday Rewind-On Thursday: Crazy Hair Night

One of my favorite theme nights of the year has come and gone faster than I can blink.

Crazy Hair night is by far one of the most popular theme nights that we do in my #KidsMin.  The ideas that my kids and their parents come up with are absolutely hysterical and amazing!  Beyond that, I have a fabulous time coming up with creative themes for my own Crazy Hair and the little one's just love to see Miss Mary looking wacky, wild & crazy

Crazy Hair night is a great night to have a little fun, but there are also some great teaching moments.  I like to use this night as a night to remind everyone how much God loves all of us no matter what we look like.  We never know what our little one's hear throughout the week, and it is so important to take advantage of every opportunity to remind them that they are treasured and loved.  It doesn't matter what they look like, it doesn't matter how athletic or sporty they are, it doesn't matter how well they do in school because God treasures all of them.

"I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well."  -Psalm 139:14

This year, I decided to take my own theme from a popular television show.
Here's a hint... Quack!  Quack!

That's right, Jack!  I chose Duck Dynasty as the theme for my crazy hair.
I have to admit that I was more than a little skeptical about this show but after seeing this interview from the patriarch of the Robertson family, Phil I was completely hooked.  Seeing a family who lives out their faith during prime-time is absolutely amazing.  Yes, they have their quirky and hilarious moments but they end every episode sitting around a table, eating dinner, and talking to Jesus and for me that's a win for the Kingdom.

Prepping for Crazy Hair night can be really simple.  I gather up all my old barettes, bows, and bobby pins and just start hot gluing.  This is what I started with this year.  My sister found all of the butterflies, leaves, roosters, and the duck at our local craft store.

This is how I ended up...

If making crazy hair styles could be a career I think that sister could be a professional because she rocks at this!  

Yes, I realize it looks rough, but check out that rooster!
It had its own nest and everything.  

I think that giant butterflies should be a new fashion statement. 

Duck Commander Pride! 

Hey, Jack!  I was happy, happy, happy with my Duck Dynasty look! 
And that's a fact, Jack! 

Take a look at the final product! 
 And this is what I looked like after I took everything out at the end of the night. 
Let's not even talk about the 20 minutes  1 hour that it took to brush that out. 
That face... It's the face of someone who loves her job and her little one's.  

We love crazy hair night so much that it is our only theme night that happens twice in one year!
And believe it or not, I'm already brainstorming my ideas for the spring.

Do you have a Crazy Hair night/day in your Children's Ministry?  What do you do to make your hair wacky!
