Ice lollies as a rod or a staff?
Your rod and staff comfort me... Being guided by God is not always as clear, easy or obvious as we would like. With this craft activity and creative form of prayer you can help children to think about the guidance that God gives us.
Jesus is the Good Shepherd, the church as a flock, God guides us.
Ice lolly sticks aren't really comparable to the rod and staff of the Shepherd. But still...
In this prayer idea/craft idea you can decorate an ice lolly stick with stickers, markers and. When you have decorated your stick, take a label and write on it in what way you want God to guide you in the future. Tie this label to the stick and take it home with you.
What you'll need:
- Ice lolly sticks
- Labels with string
- Pens, stickers
