We are continuing with our series - MESSAGES. Where we are learning about the messages that were given to some of God's people, Today is a really important one! The announcement of the birth of Jesus!
Check out the video for the content and games.
Game number 1: Gathering Sheep balloons – In your packs you have some white balloons, I want you to get them out, blow them up and draw silly sheep faces on. Have fun setting this up as a family. Get a broom, a stick or some form of object to ‘herd’ the sheep into one place in the room. Put music on and people watching can blow the sheep balloons to make them move around – making it harder for the shepherd.
Game number 2: Hide and Sheep! Ok so here is how it works … choose a shepherd in your family, then the rest of you turn into sheep and HIDE! The Shepherd has to find you!
Our sesion today is about a powerful message from a heavenly host of angels, announcing the birth of Jesus. What a glorious night for those ordinary shepherds.
Why not have some christmas carols on in the background while you are doing your crafts today?

1) Using cupcake covers, lolly pop sticks and pipe cleaners, create a group of shepherds to remind you of the message the Angels gave to them.
2) In your packs you will have a cut-out sheep, place that on top of some card, then dap paint around it to make a night time sky. Peel off the sheep and see what it reveals.
We hope you have a fantastic week.
