Living Arrows | Messy Church

Welcome back to Living Arrows, a post which celebrates childhood. I intend on creating as many of these weekly photos as possible because they are great to reflect on all together.

The project originally took its name from a poem by Kahlil Gibran ~
"You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth"

These photos capture my children's concentration whilst colouring and making decorative candle jars at a recent Messy Church. We went to two in one week and Lily in particular loved getting stuck in. Alexander is still more interested in the games rather than rotating around the crafts and activity tables, so when I saw get comfortable at a table and start chatting to people I had to take a photo. He is definitely getting ready for preschool next month!

The wool was meant to be glued around the jars but he stockpiled them

Lily enjoyed colouring and making a label for a book.
Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Crikey Alexander could be my godson's doppelganger. I think I'd have stored the wool too - much less messy #livingarrows

  2. They look like they're having just the best time - and that's such a great idea for creative play! x

  3. I love how Lily is watching over him, reminds me so much of my two! x

  4. This looks such good fun! #LivingArrows x
