THERE was plenty of festive fun for children at St Stephen’s Church in Rednal over the festive season.
Youngsters from the Play Days Tiny Tots had a visit from Santa and a Christmas Party.
The event featured soft play, balloons, bubbles, music time and a tea party, as well as Father Christmas in his grotto where all the children received a present.
This is a new group set up to cater for expectant mums and parents/careers of babies up to two years old to meet other new parents and have a chat whilst their little ones can learn and explore in a warm safe environment.
Leader Jules Kite Lightfoot said: “It was lovely to see their faces and reactions to seeing Santa and a lovely atmosphere.”
Finding out about the Nativity story
Children from Play Days Active Kids at St Stephen’s Church dressed up as Nativity characters to find out more about the birth of Jesus.
The youngsters enjoyed joining in with the singing and dancing and using props during the Christmas Fairy story.
The play tells the story of the Fairy from the top of the tree learning all about Christmas finishing with the Nativity scene,
After the play the children were given the chance to make baby Jesus manger cakes to take home with them.
They also decorated stables with Nativity stickers, glue, glitter and chalks.
Jules said: “It was a lovely way to introduce the little ones to the true meaning of Christmas.”
