EYFS Advent Prayer Bags
The children worked in their key worker groups to explore the Advent Prayer Bags. The children lit battery operated candles and thought about how Jesus brings his light to people to show them the way. Using hearts, the children explored the meaning of love and the children were encouraged to pray for those people they love. The children used pipe cleaners to create a symbol of something that brings them joy.
