Creche: Jesus calms the storm treasure basket

Sometimes it’s hard to think of how babies can be included in the themes of a story we’re telling at church.  I’ve been finding out something about treasure baskets recently.  Have a look at this excellent post from Little Acorns to Mighty Oaks that explains so much more about how treasure baskets can be made and used.

I wanted something I could use with the story of Jesus calming the storm and thought that a box with a rough/smooth theme would fit the bill- reflecting the rough/smooth water of the storm/calm. I cheated a little bit and put a velcro curler into the box (plastic is not usually allowed but the velcro on it has a great texture!)

The box includes:

  • cork backed coaster (smooth)
  • wooden block (smooth)
  • wooden spoon (smooth)
  • ribbon (smooth)
  • pine cone (rough)
  • natural exfoliator pad (rough)
  • unused shoe brush (rough)
  • velcro curler (rough)
  • pastry brush (rough and smooth)
