Sticky Fingers

Sticky fingers is our baby & toddler group. We normally meet on Thursday mornings during term time from 10.00-11.30am at St Augustine’s Church Hall.

With us not meeting because of Coronavirus, here’s a suggestion of something you could do t home…

This Sunday is Mother’s Day, one day of the year where we can make a special effort to show mums how much they are loved every day of the year. A chance to say thank you for all they do - to say thank you for all their love. You may want to think of and have a chat about Grans too, or other women in your life who have a mothering role for you or your little ones.

Our story today is about a mum called Jochebed, and the lengths she went to because of how much she loved her son.
See photo for story.

Video clip appropriate if you have primary aged children tagging along with you - may be a little ‘scary’ for the toddlers...Clip from ‘Prince Of Egypt’ - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-WimijgGEU
