Ready Steady Stick 2015

Ready, Steady, Stick!

February half term saw the return of the snakes, lions and monkeys in St Laurence’s Church and Church Hall! It wasn’t escaped animals from Twycross Zoo but the return ofJungle Jamboree.

Children and parents were once again entertained by the mad goings-on of the Watt Family on their jungle adventure; one of them was tempted to make a wrong choice, and ended up being chased by a not so friendly warrior! We have to wait for the next RSS to find out what happened to them….


We listened to the Bible story of the Prodigal Son, where a wrong choice was made. There were no warriors here, just a herd of pigs! But we did get a happy ending.  We then invited some of the children to make a choice. Could we tempt them on their hot jungle adventure with a glass of chilled, pure water or a delicious looking strawberry pink milkshake? They learnt that sometimes the things that look good and exciting are not always the best things for us.


After this, jungle animals seemed to appear from nowhere, as children and parents created snakes of all shapes and sizes that slithered and hissed.






There were beautifully decorated lion masks and biscuits that roared and made us jump with fright. Monkeys leapt and jumped around the room and there were strange creatures made from junk.


We made signs to warn us about going in the wrong direction and spinners that told us of the consequences of our wrong choices. There was glitter and sequins, glue and icing, all the things that go to create a mess, but everyone had a fun time. We ended the day with refreshments, including some yummy pancakes with some even yummier toppings.

Look out for the next RSS when the Jungle Jamboree continues, on Tuesday 31stMarch.
