This Friday the Little Fishes had another story about praising God. As the Little Fishes were gathering we tried to remember last week’s story about Zechariah and how he praised God for the birth of Baby John. It’s hard when we are all getting terribly excited about Christmas.

One Little Fish decided that the answer to every question was ‘Mary’. Eventually he would have been right except he decided to answer the last question with, ‘I don’t know’. So we sung some praise songs with the Jingle Bells instead.

Then it was time for today’s story. One Brave Little Fish volunteered to dress up as Mary. He looked very sweet although his ‘scared’ face at the arrival of the angel Gabriel would have been enough to frighten the bravest archangel back up to the heavens.

It was time for a change of personnel as another Little Fish took on the lead role as we talked about how Mary went to visit her cousin Elizabeth and sung a song of praise to God.

We talked about our roles in our different play groups nativity plays and discovered that we had the angel Gabriel, a king, a shepherd, a donkey and even a crocodile in our midst.

Time for some colouring.

One of the Little Fishes had turned three since we last saw her so we rounded off our time together by singing ‘Happy Birthday’ and eating special cakes. Then it was time to play!

Little Fishes is our ‘mums and tots’ group which meets every Friday in church from 2pm. There is no charge and all babies, toddlers and pre-school children are very welcome to come along with their carers.

Join us next week as we hear about the Christmas angels.
