Christmas – all part of The Plan

I love Christmas. It’s an opportunity for all sorts of lovely crafts. People do appear to be in the mood to celebrate. I wanted to put Christmas into context in our stories at toddler group. Why did Jesus come to earth? So this is the journey to Bethlehem that we are taking.. (sorry that the pics are poor quality – just not enough daylight!)

We started with creation last week and move on to the serpent this week. I hope that the adults will enjoy this journey and see Christmas as part of God’s Plan.

As we go through the weeks I’ll post pictures of what it will be like at toddler group. Hopefully you will get an idea of how all the paper plate pictures look as we build the story each week.

Final photo of my attempt to show you them altogether.. didn’t quite work .. but the best I could do today. The footprints will be added each week.
