Messy Christmas

3 Complete Sessions and a Treasure Trove Of Craft Ideas For Advent, Christmas And Epiphany

by Lucy Moore and Jane Leadbetter


Publisher:BRF (Bible Reading Fellowship)
Published:August 2012
Here is a handy mix of craft ideas for Advent and Christmas together with prayer ideas, songs and suggestions for actions for justice. If you are looking for an alternative way of approaching the message of Christmas then there is plenty of food for thought - homeless dens and collecting boxes, a white Christmas from Australia (coconut sweets), stress relief gifts and wood 'upcycling' to name a few. There are also some interactive stories and plenty of cooking ideas. A good, low cost book of ideas to dip into. You are bound to find something you can use or that will inspire you this Christmas.
