Prodigal Son Messy Church crafts

Yesterday we had a buzzing Messy Church at our grand opening of the reordered building.  Our theme was 'The Prodigal Son' and these are the crafts we used to explore the story...

Money bags made of felt squares, elastic bands and ribbons


Sandals with stiff cardboard soles and string straps


Jewellery made from threading cheerios onto strawberry laces



Dressing up in 'robes'

Family photo frames made of lolly sticks, stickers and card squares


Pig biscuits: digestives, pink icing, pink fondant, chocolate chips, mini smarties, pink candy melts


The Father's house made of cardboard, brown tape, imagination adults and children.  The most house- like structure we've ever built!!!

We also had 'Pigswill' gunge made of cornflour and water, which was a great hit with the younger children especially!

All of these crafts were then mentioned in the story during our celebration section, so that the children (and adults!) could see how they fitted into the story!
