We have issues in children’s church with kids bringing in toys that are distracting, or a cup full of snacks from the snack counter. In the past it has been a disruption to the class. To help curb that behavior, we’ve now put up a sign on the door that tells kids to put their snacks and toys on the counter at the back of the room. They can claim them when class is over. Even if the kids don’t remember the rule when they come in, it’s easy for teachers to point to the sign and remind them. Kids tend not to argue with a written sign.
