TEDDY EDWARD REPORTING: on our meeting on the 6th April when so many children attended we didn’t know what to do, just like the nursery rhyme and Old Mother Hubbard. Only joking, we knew precisely what to do and that was to settle down and begin with prayers and a quiet time together. Roz asked us had we seen any butterflies lately. Well it has been very cold and windy so it was amazing that Roz saw two, a Brimstone and an Orange Tip! It was, therefore, a natural progression that Roz’s story was about a caterpillar and a butterfly and we made the appropriate shapes with our fingers and hands.
This story is about a very special wiggly caterpillar who lived in a nettle patch. He was surrounded with friends who relied on him for many things so they were very sad and perplexed when one day he called them all together and explained he had to go away for a while but would return. Roz showed us the caterpillar disappearing inside a sock which represented a cocoon the caterpillar had made for himself. The caterpillar may have disappeared but out of the cocoon sock came a beautiful butterfly. This story is an analogy which is a story to illustrate an happening and the story of the caterpillar and the butterfly is when Jesus lived to love us and died to save us but rose again to continue looking after us.
There were three birthdays to celebrate with our happy birthday song, Chloe, our past member visiting with her sister and brother, Fleur who informs us she is three, and Toni, Vaya’s mum.
Roz had some chicks she had made to give away and under their wings they had a chocolate Easter egg and also an Easter story book. We had hot cross buns and chocolate biscuits along with tea, then fun on the bikes as the babies watched, probably wondering when it would be their turn to have fun at the Teddy Edward Club. We meet the first Wednesday of the month and there is more fun to be had at our various fun meetings. Come and find out what’s going on by looking through our church digest.
