So last week I was thinking, what activity should I do with the children at Kids’ Club… Mothering Sunday is coming up, but it’s a week and a half away. Perhaps the usual making Mother’s Day cards and parcelling up a few fun-sized chocolates would be ideal. What Mum wouldn’t appreciate that? We’ve done that several times before, what could go wrong?
I cut out all the cards and folded them the right size, got boxes of fun-sized chocolates, found the colouring pens and pencils. Ah! And I’ve recently found some bargain mini stamps and mini ink pads from Hobbycraft. That brought back happy memories of me as a little girl stamping all over to make pretty pictures (or so I thought anyway) – so easy and quick, and nowadays you can get so many bright colours.

Welcome to our Kids’ Club website!
I started this blog mainly, but not exclusively, for parents, grandparents, siblings and carers of the children who come to our Kids’ Club sessions. I hope that all the children who come would agree that they enjoy our time together – they sure seem to be very enthusiastic! Sometimes in all the excitement I forget or don’t have time to get across some ideas that I have prepared, or some thoughts might take a bit more time to digest. So the hope is that, if I can put our messages on a blog, then any kids or their parents or carers who are interested can find out what we did in the sessions and what it’s all about, together with some further food for thought.
I hope that you, or anyone who might stumble upon our site, would get as much out of it as I do, because it gives me and all our Kids’ Club leaders great joy when we do these sessions. It isn’t easy with our limited energy and resources, but it is always a privilege to engage with our children. We learn a lot from them and from preparing for the sessions, and are reminded of Jesus’ words,
Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” – Mark 10:14
I hope that you will have a glimpse of this Kingdom of God through our kids too. If you find anything useful here, please feel free to share.
