The backing track is distributed using PRS Licence LE-0014823. The words are by © John Hardwick and used with permission. Please do not pass it on outside the IDEAS scheme and declare its use on your CCLI report.

We find that a bible-bop is a great way of moving from the games into the worship. Children prefer this to singing and this will draw them to the worship area. We suggest using it again after tea to draw people back to the worship area.

Arrow Craft

Each month we suggest a couple of crafts. One is a corporate activity to produce something to put up on the wall or in the church to show that children are present, active and part of the church. The other is individual for them to make something and take it home.


Crafts 
For the group craft we suggest making a collage of the 3 temptations. Along with other things to use have available pictures of Jesus, rocks, bread, armies and the temple.

For a cooking craft you could make Soda Bread. If you have the ingredients mixed and ready and the children knead and shape the rolls, there may just be time to bake them for tea. See a recipe on the BBC web site:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/irishsodabread_67445

For individual crafts there is a "What Would Jesus Do" mobile and other crafts at:

Arrow Tea

We have found that sandwiches, crisps, sausage rolls, pizza, jelly and ice cream make a really good Sunday tea. The Notes suggest a number of "I wonder questions" to start conversations about the video and the story.

Arrow Response

You're the greatest We suggest calling everyone back to the worship space by repeating the bible-bop - Download - Sample
