To tell the story (have the props in a story bag and take them out when you need them)
‘God made the sky. It was big and empty. So God put the sun in the sky for daytime. He put the moon in the sky for nighttime. What else can we see at night? God made all the twinkling stars. Now sometimes in the day and at night we see something else that God made in the sky – he made clouds too. Everything that God made was very good.’ (Thumbs up)
Song to sing – ‘Twinkle, twinkle little star’ (of course!), ‘My God is so big, so strong and so mighty’.
This was our craft .. cup cake cases cut into clouds (beforehand – older children could do this themselves), cotton wool clouds, shiny paper sun rays and a bit of glitter glue. The sun was cut out using a paper punch.
