Fledgelings See and Know: Easter

fledglings2Hello lovely people!  Below is a new "See and Know" singing time on the theme of Easter for you to join in with at home.  We hope you enjoy it. 
After the first video there is a link to a toddler friendly craft idea.  If you have a go at it send us a picture so we can see your wonderful creativity. 
This week Ezra and Ellis have each chosen a song,  we hope you enjoy singing them.  Let us know if there is a song your child would like to choose from the song bag. 

This week there's a different person sharing a short thought about Easter in the grown ups video, we hope you find it helpful and encouraging. 

We keep saying it (but that's because we mean it!) please get in touch if you need a chat or if we can help you in some way, our contact details are above.
We are praying for you and your family, but please let us know if you have anything specific you would like us to pray for.

Fledgelings See and Know: Palm Sunday

fledglings2Hello again!  Below is another "See and Know" singing time for you to join in with at home.  We hope you enjoy it. 
After the first video there are some links to some donkey craft ideas.  If you make something we would love you to send us a picture so we can see what you've made at home, and don't forget to let us know if there's a song your child would like from the song bag. 
After the main video there's a bonus song we thought the children would like which includes a drumming pig!  Be warned though; it very easily gets stuck in your head!
The grown ups video is just a short thought we hope you find helpful. 
Do get in touch if you need a chat or if we can help you in some way, our contact details are above.  We are praying for you and your family, but if you have anything specific you would like us to pray for please let us know.

Fledgelings See and Know: Spring

fledglings2We're missing seeing you all at Fledgelings, but we thought just because we can't meet together doesn't mean we can't have our singing time.  Below is a video to sing along with that we've tried to make as much like a normal "See and Know" session as we can.  We hope you enjoy it and would love to hear your feedback. 
Below there are also some links to some craft ideas and colouring on the theme of spring.  We would love to see what you make.  Why not email us a picture?  And don't forget to let us know what song you would like from the song bag, especially if it's your birthday.
There's also a second video with a short thought for grown ups that we hope you find helpful.  If you need a chat give one of us a ring or email us and we can ring you (contact details above).  We would also love to pray for you and your family.  If you have anything specific you would like us to pray for let us know.

Have you ever thought about doing a parenting course?  
If so now could be a good time to do one online.

Care for the Family logoCare for the Family is a fantastic national charity which aims to promote strong family life and to help those who face family difficulties.  They have loads of great resources on their website, including two parenting podcasts available to watch for free. 

The Primary Years Parenting Podcast is all about helping mums and dads do the best job they can at bringing up their children.

Raising Teens is especially for parents of teenagers, covering topics such as sex and relationships, the digital age, self-esteem and much more. 

Most of the videos are 10 - 15 minutes long and well worth a watch.
