Footsteps 2011

For the past 2 years, Chearsley children and their parents have had a whole heap of fun at the church’s FOOTSTEPS day held each August. The day typically starts off with craft in the village hall, followed by a picnic lunch and then games and drama and more crafts in the afternoon. The idea is that the children “walk in the footsteps” of a biblical character, getting to know more about them while having fun at the same time. Last year we learnt all about Moses. Some of the fun activities we had were making clay bricks, pitching tents in the desert, eating rice paper manna and covering an amazing papier mache calf with gold paper.

This year we will be following in the footsteps of “Jesus the Storyteller” and will be sending the children on “quests” for answers! We will be split into groups with a baby/toddler area for younger siblings, a pre-school group, an infant group and a primary group. The younger children will do lots of crafts and games while the primary children will prepare a drama to show the younger ones at the end of the day. We are planning to finish off with a feast and a disco (but ‘shsh’ keep that a surprise from the children!).

The day is open to children from 0 to 12 and each child will need a parent or nominated adult with them at all times. Over 12s would be very welcome to help.

If you would like to spend a day having fun with your children and other parents at Footsteps, please contact Sharon Sampson for more information.
