The Parent and Toddler Group have been discovering about “Jesus going to Heaven”. Several pictures of transport were shown to the children, a bus, a car, an aeroplane and a cloud. The children had to say which they thought was the way Jesus went to heaven. We decided that it was by cloud. Everyone became a cloud floating in the sky.
The children took part in the story. Each child was given a white balloon which represented an angel. Reverend Carol had a yellow balloon to represent Jesus.
Everyone else had coloured balloons to represent the friends of Jesus. Every time their characters were mentioned in the story the balloon was held up, until the story ended with Jesus disappearing on a cloud. We made cloud pictures using blue card with cotton wool and cloud mobiles. The mobiles had a large cloud at the top and cut outs of a star, sun, moon and a smaller cloud hanging from it, which the children decorated. Our next theme will be Pentecost.
Sophie has been back to church to relight her Baptismal Candle, celebrating two years since her baptism. Emma, one of our mums got confirmed. Families from Toddlers supported them both by attending these services.
