Christmas things

It’s that time of year again

(At least if you’re involved in planning)

The shops may still be packed full of pumpkins and cobwebs but we know that Christmas will be here sooner than you think. There are scripts to find, cast and rehearse. Costumes to make. Copious amount of chocolate coins to buy. Songs to choose. And a theme to link it too.
Let  me make your life a little easier by pointing you in the direction of some excellent Christmas scripts. And a How to… full of acting tips.

That’s not all for Christmas but it’s a good start  and I hope you find something useful!

Narnia

The Chronicles continue

but we haven’t finished yet

Yes, unfortunately the series is unfinished and will remain so for a while longer. We only had five weeks left before the holidays when I was writing these so that’s not enough for the whole series even if we hadn’t copped out and just had a Narnia themed party for our final week. Costumes were mainly of Pevensie children because that’s easy but we had a few talking animals and a very enterprising lamppost!
Check out the Magician’s Nephew and the Voyage of the Dawn Treader.

I do have plans to create talks for the rest of the series at some point, even if it’s only for the benefit of the blog.

The Chronicles of Narnia

Step through the wardrobe

and get the discussion started

This is a slightly new style for the disorganised sunday school blog: no games, songs or memory verses but a youth group style talk and discussion. Great for older kids as it is (we played games either side) or an exploration of themes you can adapt for younger kids if you want. Also it includes what is probably my best idea ever! That’s for those of you who don’t find Narnia itself enough of a draw.

This week: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe (2 talks)
Next week: Assorted other books

A new ‘How to…’

WOT A way to pray

(my apologies to everyone who teaches spellings)

Just uploaded a new ‘how to…’ and this times it’s all about prayer! There are so many great ideas for teaching about prayer and how to prayer so I’m throwing another one into your pot. I’ll be posting on this topic again and I’d LOVE your ideas, tips, and favourites.
