This is our first attempt and, when it's been labelled up, it will be ready to go! Again, a lot of the stuff inside has come from the pound shop (we love it there!!) or from the toys and books we already have at church so it's not expensive!
Inside this particular gift bag we have put:
A story book, shiny blue fabric (sea) a playmobil man, plastic fish, shells, instruments (to make the storm noises!), smiley and happy faces to help discuss the sad and happy times in the story, a plastic box for a boat (we couldn't find a toy boat that wasn't an ark, but I've put some parents on the case to find one!), an inflatable dolphin (if you use your imagination it could be a whale!) and, my favourite, a whale bubble gun from the pound shop. It's probably most suitable for 3-5s so that they can explore and act out the story with their parents once they've heard it.
We're looking forward to seeing how it goes!
