Tuesday 20th December 9:30-12:00
21 children came to enjoy the Christmas story as experienced through the eyes of the little donkey.
It was a fun filled morning of craft activities, stories and songs. Children started with a get-together activity and then re-acted the journey to Bethlehem as experienced by the donkey carrying its precious load.
Craft activities followed and the children made nativity characters using wooden spoons as a base for felt shapes to be attached; Christmas marzipan oranges and chocolate truffle sweeties were made to take home and share with their families and the children also produced Christmas cards and thought carefully about who they were going to give them to. Some children painted a wonderful scene of the stable, Mary, Joseph and the baby and angels singing in the sky.
The morning finished with the singing of Little Donkey and other Christmas songs and everyone went home after a very enjoyable morning.
Many thanks to Jane for an inspirational morning which gave the children a real insight into the story of Jesus’ birth.
