Three girls and a boy holding up pictures of butterflies in the woods

This month we were looking at butterflies. It followed on nicely from last month’s caterpillars.  After having an energising team relay race we went on a butterfly hunt. We created our own butterfly pictures, and then made butterflies out of sticks and leaves. We thought about how if we follow the path that Jesus showed us, we become like beautiful butterflies.

Lovely Forest Church this afternoon! The weather was much kinder to us this month. We made our own very hungry caterpillars, looked for eggs and larvae, and planted runner bean seeds. We hope that they will grow as well as the seeds that were planted in the good soil in the parable of the sower.

Lovely Forest Church this afternoon! We looked for evidence of animals, birds and insects in the woods, and found plenty. We thought about the story of David and Goliath, and fired small pine cones from our newly-made catapults. Well done, kids!

We were busy this afternoon making habitats for the insects that live in the woods.  We made bug hotels and bug mugs to put in our gardens at home.  We thought about the importance of all of the creatures in God’s kingdom, and how every single one has a job to do.
