Creative Ideas ~ For every age!
Throw a party!
Celebrate your family’s completion of 1 Peter by throwing a wrap-up party! Have everyone help out with the planning and preparation (see below for some ideas), and make it a fun, relaxed time to rejoice over all that the Lord has taught you. Don’t forget to include everyone’s favorite snacks and games in the celebration! Also, make a point to have each family member share their favorite thing that they learned from 1 Peter.
Share the fun with other families who are studying 1 Peter! Just add a favorite photo to Facebook using the hashtag #1PeterSS.

Plan a worship time for your wrap-up party!
Help lead your family in worship for all of the amazing attributes of God that you’ve learned this summer! Think about some of the key themes from 1 Peter that you studied, and/or some of your favorite attributes of God. Then try to choose songs that focus on those themes and attributes.
Share some of the songs you picked with others who are studying 1 Peter! Simply tweet them using the hashtag #1PeterSS.

Make up a skit about 1 Peter!
Provide some live entertainment for your family’s wrap-up party by performing a short skit! Make it as long or as short as you want—and feel free to use props, costumes, and other siblings to help make your story come alive! Base your skit on a favorite theme from 1 Peter, or simply recite or dramatically read favorite parts of the book.
Be sure to have a family member take a picture of your performance and share it on Facebook using the hashtag #1PeterSS.

Make “key word” balloons!
Blow up some balloons in different colors and sizes (with a parent’s help, if you need it). Then use a permanent marker to write one key word from 1 Peter on each balloon. During your family’s wrap-up party, try playing games with the balloons to see how well everyone remembers the words you studied!
Share a picture of your key word balloons with others who are studying 1 Peter! Simply add it to Instagram using the hashtag #1PeterSS.

Make a paper chain!
Help celebrate your diligent work studying 1 Peter by making decorations for your family’s wrap-up party! Cut out different-colored strips of construction paper, bend them into loops, tape them tight, and then link them together to make a paper chain. Then, have a parent or taller sibling help you hang it from the ceiling, wall, or doorway.
Once your paper chain is complete, have your mom or dad take a picture of it and post it on Instagram using the hashtag #1PeterSS!
