CHILDREN’S CHRISTMAS ACTIVITY MORNING
January 2nd 2015
9.30am to noon
We ran a morning for children on January 2nd. The theme was ‘Shepherds and Sheep’ and we looked at fluffy Christmas lambs and the adult Jesus as our Shepherd.
Thanks to Jane and all the helpers for making the morning so successful.
The children followed the Biblical story as we played Hide and Seek when the shepherd had to leave his flock of sheep to go and search for the sheep that was lost; we enjoyed craft activities and made sheep masks from paper plates, sheep name badges, colourful shepherds crooks and made shortbread biscuits in the shape of shepherds and sheep. The children enjoyed painting a large mural of the Lost Sheep and the morning finished with everyone enjoying actions songs. It was a delightful morning enjoyed by children and helpers and everyone is looking forward to the next Activity morning which will probably be at Easter.
The picture shows the Shepherd with his flock of sheep and, if you look really carefully, you can see the lost sheep at the bottom right of the picture!
