PRAISE AND PLAY
Praise and Play Activity Page
Teddy Horsley features in our fortnightly Praise and Play sessions in the Parish Centre. At this time when we can’t gather, we have asked Teddy Horsley to come up with some activities that families can do at home.
So, every week Teddy Horsley will have some challenges for you. If you manage to complete any of them, why not send a picture to praiseandplayatMellor@gmail.com, so that we can put some of them on this website or the church Facebook page?
Week 12: Trees
- Get active!
Over the last few weeks, we’ve been looking out for some of the small creatures that God made…but today we’re thinking about some of his bigger creations! I wonder: are there any trees near your house? Maybe on your walk you might like to do this activity:
- Get watching!
There’s a story in the Bible about a man who really, really wanted to see Jesus, so he climbed a tree! You can watch a cartoon of the story here:
- Get singing!
This song and dance routine tells the story too. Sing along…and maybe dance along too?
- Get creative!
This week Teddy Horsley has been doing some bark rubbings and leaf rubbings. They’re really easy and you can make some really lovely patterns. Have a go!
- Get praying!
Thank you for all the beautiful trees in our world. Thank you that they give us shade on a hot day and help to make the air good for us to breathe.
Thank you too for the story of Zacchaeus. It’s amazing how his life changed when he followed you. Help me to follow you too.
Thank you, Jesus.
