.... went fabulously well - it was noisy and messy and happy and an utterly joyful place to be and in all that hustle & bustle you really felt that God was there with us. It was the most calming atmosphere within a noisy church hall - a very special time :)
Our theme was the Olympics linked to the Bible verses about how Jesus called his team of disciples together.
Our activities were:
Making an edible Olympic torch
Design a Flag
Make a musical shaker
A pentathlon of outdoor games
Make your own gold medal and write/draw on the back what you are good at
An Olympic collage with all our names on it
We had puppets and songs and a discus prayer (prayer on a paper plate and then thrown a la discus!)
All followed by Messy Grace & a cooked supper
As I was one of the organisers I completely forgot to take photos - but if I get some of the craft makes in church tomorrow - I'll post them!!
Thanks for your good wishes.
