This week we are learning about Joy, we will be looking at a video of the prodigal son, and thinking about the father's Joy when his son returned.
Message for parents: The video does not touch on how we see joy in our own lives as we come closer to Jesus, so that might be a nice point to discuss and talk about together.
Our memory verse for this series is ‘The fruit of the spirit is, Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faith, Gentleness and Self Control.’ Galatians 5:22 – 23

1) Create this Prodigal son craft using the white card to cut out your hand prints, attach this to the coloured frame and add a face, with eyes. You can bend the card to symbolise the father hugging his son and welcoming him home.
2) Blow up a balloon and play a game ‘keep it up’ the aim of the game is to not let the balloon touch the floor, you can use any body part to keep it up. Have some fun playing as a family.
3) Make a collage of the things that bring you Joy.
Have a fantastic half term, we are praying for you all.
