Busy Bees and hens

The theme for our September 2023 session was hens. Carlo and Emily Facchini kindly hosted the group and we all learnt a lot about hens and how to care for them. The children fed the hens with scraps they brought from home, collected eggs, and held and named a cockerel! One of the hens had recently had chicks, and looking at her helped us understand the passage form the Bible in which Jesus says ‘How often have I desired to gather your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings’. Egg themed games followed, and a hen outline was filled mosaic style with eggshells.
