Keeping Christian Families Entertained During The Holidays

Welcome to the school holidays! If you don’t have kids, this probably means an easier journey to work, if you do this probably means you, or someone else needs to come up with ways to stop the little darlings from watching nothing but Cbeebies all day long. 

But what can be done to entertain young Christian families throughout the holidays? Well Sofa is here to help*.

Here is our list of ways to keep Christian families entertained during the school holidays…

  1. Compile a list of all the local holiday clubs. GET TO ALL OF THEM.
  2. Learn a Bible verse a day.
  3. Colour in pencil drawings of crosses.
  4. Picnics! AKA portable communions…
  5. Go on a family pilgrimage. (Possibly to the local cheap family friendly pub)
  6. Take all your toilet rolls and try recreating the Tower of Babel.
  7. Encourage the smalls ones to make a joyful noise! Joyful… may mean screaming…
  8. Build a castle out of left over Bible study notes.
  9. Is it raining outside? Time to encourage baptisms in the puddles.
  10. When all else fails… 80s Christians movies on Youtube? (On second thoughts dont do that. Some of them are quite scary!)

Any other ideas you would like to add?

When Small Ones Delay Bedtime…

It was bedtime,

And there I am, about to charge into the bathroom to ask the small one why she’s messing around when cleaning her teeth… and it turns out she’s trying to read Bible Study Notes.

I guess that’s one way of avoiding bedtime?

If Easter and Christmas have something in common, well they both have a lot in common – but as they care both Christian holidays. As such, both seasons seem to have moments of Christian outrage associated with them.

It’s a long time before Easter, but the sofa has already picked up on Twitter outrage about Easter.

So here’s the start of Easter 2018 outrage list. A list of things that Christians have got / get outraged about during Easter this year.

This list is expected to be updated.
