We learnt how to make a Christingle and the meaning behind all the different parts of it.
We had to get an orange - this represents the world.
Next we put red tape all around the orange - this represents Jesus' love going all around the world.
We then placed a candle in the top of the orange - this represents Jesus as the light of the world.
Then we carefully placed 4 cocktail sticks around the orange - these are for the 4 seasons.
Finally we placed sweet dried fruits and sweets onto the cocktail sticks - these represent the good things that God gives us.
It was quite tricky to make and involved us using a range of fine motor skills but we were very pleased with our results. Have a look at our slideshow showing some of us making the Christingles and some of the finished results.
