Parable of the Mustard Seed: Messy Church Crafts

Last week we continued our Messy Church theme of Parables and investigated the parable of the mustard seed. It's a tiny parable but has so much in it!

31 He told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed,which a man took and planted in his field. 32 Though it is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds come and perch in its branches.” 
(Matthew 13: 31-32)

Here are the crafts we used to think about the story...

Mustard Tree cakes (cupcakes with a hole scooped out of them. Plant a Smartie 'seed' in the hole, cover with butter icing and show a paper tree growing where the seed has been planted!)

Decorating branches

Building Lego homes

Growing Seeds

Making bird gliders (Kits from Baker Ross at a really reasonable price)

Making a prayer tree with prayers on leaves and birds
