What are you going to use? Pencils, felt pens, paint, cotton buds, coloured paper, different fabrics, glitter?

Remember we drew rainbows after we had listened to the Bible story of Noah’s Ark to remind us of God’s promise.

 

Try some ‘Cosmic Yoga’

 Try some Yoga at home either by yourself, making sure you have permission from your parent(s) first, or as a family.

Take a few moments to be ​calm, mindful and relaxed.

Make a Sock bunny (no sewing!)

 Get creative and have fun ​making a sock bunny. You will need:​ ​Socks, scissors (use with your parent as the scissors need to be sharp enough to cut the sock material cleanly), rice for stuffing (sand or an alternative of your choice), string or ribbon, a marker pen  (buttons/ felt/fabric pieces- all optional).
