While we can’t meet in person, we’re trying out other ways to help families have fun together. This is our third craft box now, and it’s grown from just being a Little Angels thing, to including all the folks we know through Soggy Saturday, and also St Michael’s Church’s Discoverers after school club. And we’re very much open to everyone! If you would like to receive a craft box for your little one (aged up to 11ish) when we next do one, then the easiest way is for you to join our Soggy Saturday Facebook group, so that you hear about our next box as soon as we announce it!
This month we reckon we could all do with a bit more Light and Hope in our lives, so that’s our theme. We’ve chosen two Bible stories which talk about both light and hope – one will probably be quite familiar, the other one is less well-known, but is an amazing story!
There are loads of other resources available on the internet if you want to explore these stories further. Some of our favourite resources are produced by Trueway Kids – you can find the story of Noah at https://truewaykids.com/noahs-ark-free-printable-bible-lesson-for-preschoolers/ and you’ll find the story of Paul and Silas at https://truewaykids.com/paul-and-silas-in-prison/
We mentioned in our letter about some other activities and groups which you might be interested in;
- If your little one is under school age (roughly – we’re being flexible at the moment!), you would be very welcome to join us at Little Angels (if you don’t already!) We are running weekly Zoom gatherings on a Thursday afternoon (from 1.30pm), with a chance to have a natter for you, and a story and some singing for the little ones. Zoom is dead easy to use, and you don’t even need to sign up for an account! You can contact us here for more information, or take a look at the information here, or on our Facebook page, www.facebook.com/LittleAngelsTotsGroup.
- If your little one is a bit older (5+), our friends at St Michael’s Church are still running their ‘Discoverers’ after school club, although they can’t meet in person. You can find them on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/groups/339137400634070 or contact Sue Kenyon on firstname.lastname@example.org.
And we haven’t forgotten Soggy Saturday either – we miss meeting for afternoons of fun and mayhem at the Village Hall, and we hope these boxes are going some little way to being a replacement. We are always looking for ways to keep blessing folks in Waddington and the surrounding area, so if you have any great ideas, do get in touch – we’d love to hear them.
