If you have made any Easter decorations, baked any Easter treats, or follow any particular Easter traditions, it would be great to hear about them.
Some Leaders from another group created this Beavers Easter Activity pack and very generously shared it for others to use.
There are some faith-related resources for young people on the Sunday Club and Kids' Club pages on the Uppermill Methodist Church website, as well as details of the requirements of the My Faith badge for all 3 sections.
There are also details on there of worship over Easter and if you see anything of interest in the Virtual Church Hall - then please join in.
All 3 of our sections have a My Faith activity badge, and if you are celebrating Easter as a family then you may be meeting some of the requirements of this badge. You can see the details for each section here.
1. Write a prayer or reflection
2. Read or share a prayer or reflection - send it to me and it can go on our social media.
3. Read a story about doing your best and helping people. Think about ways it links to the Beaver Scout promise.
4. Visit a place of worship and tell other Beavers about your visit. (This is the tricky one at the moment: all I have found so far is an interactive map of York Minster - you might like to compare this with your child's memories of visiting St Chad's, UMC or other local churches.)
1. Find out about your place of worship and something about:
- the people involved, their titles and what they do
- the importance of sacred objects
- the festivals and customs
- the stories and traditions.
2. Choose a favourite prayer or reading (or you could write your own prayer). Share it with the pack and explain why you picked it. (Send it to me and I can share it via our social media).
3. Choose your favourite festival, explain what it means and talk about the food, clothes and customs associated with it.
If you have been confirmed, or have had your bat mitzvah / bar mitzvah or a similar faith life experience then you just need to complete a Scouting activity relating to your faith.
1. Take an active part in your place of worship.
2. Find out about the origins of your faith.
3. Explore something about the history of your faith.
4. Explain to an adult some of the teachings of your faith and explain how these affect the way you live your life.
