This weekend we seemed to make a dramatic shift from Advent reflection to full throttle Christmas! E’s nativity play, Christmas Messy Church, Christmas crafts with baby T, Christmas at Toast!. I’m exhausted already!!
So over the next couple of weeks as well as advent calendar activities I’m going to post a few craft ideas too. Starting with….
On Sunday I was leading the craft in creche and we made manger cakes (I’ll post the photos soon). I was a little unsure about the concept of eating baby Jesus but the children seemed fine with it. We simply made chocolate cornflake cakes, placed a jelly baby in the ‘manger’ and covered it with a small piece of ready to roll icing as a blanket. Quick easy and the children loved it (even if I thought it a little wierd!)
Day ten – Read a Christmas bedtime story. (Guess what we read?)
