Messy church did what it said on the tin today. I finished the day covered in paint glue and stickers, smelling of smoke after making my first ever s’mores, and eating fruit kebabs.
We had rice investigations in the tuff table, ink pad and stickers card making, rainbow streamer pictures , peace doves and sensory paint pouches.
We did the story of Jesus calming the storm and finished the day roasting marshmallows round a fire pit. Mark was kept busy writing risk assessments whilst I assembled fire fighting equipment. Of course nothing set on fire , everyone was fine and enjoyed their s’mores experience.
The great thing about messy church is that it attracts different parents and children every time we do it. We all help out at each others churches and somehow always come up with different things to do. .
