The Little Fishes gathered for their last get together before Christmas. They were soooo excited. Apparently, Father Christmas will be bringing them some presents in just a few sleeps.

But why do we get presents at Christmas? The Little Fishes struggled with this answer. They just knew they were going to get some so we got a jigsaw puzzle out to help us find the answer.

Eventually we found all the right pieces and made a picture of the Christmas stable.

But someone was missing!

One of the Little Fishes found the Baby Jesus and we learned that he was God’s gift to us and that he came to earth to be our friend and Saviour…and that is why we have presents at Christmas.

Another Little Fish spotted the three kings carrying their gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. Another reason for presents at Christmas. There was only one thing for it but to get the jingle bells out and sing.

Colouring, party food and play followed.

The Little Fishes would like to wish everyone a very happy Christmas.

We are going to take our Christmas break now and our next meeting will be on 10th January when all babies, toddlers and pre-school children are very welcome to come along with their carers at 2pm in St Peter’s church.
