Messy Craft:
Advent Candles. Doing them in October meant that they can be dry and ready for families to take home after the November session, just in time for Advent. A easy but great way to talk about Jesus being light in the world.

Craft:
These wonderful creative shapes where cut from paper that when scrapped would reveal a multitude of colours. Allowing light and dark, colour and shade to be explored.

Story:
We explored different sources of light in our story using our big screen, getting the children to identify the light sources. Then Amy explained that her favourite source of light was a candle. Moving forward she explained that Jesus is a light in the world, and if we believe in Him we can be a light to others as well. We all carry light.
The story was followed by singing ‘This little light of mine.’ (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cKkbIZtqhyQ)
