Jack in the Box Worship

Fun, multi-sensory worship for Foundation Stage settings

written by Early Years specialists

Shahne Vickery, Belinda Stowe, Anita Dobson & Diane Paddon

“An invaluable resource in promoting spiritual and moral development.”
Jack, the loveable Labrador puppet comes out of his box to engage children in the four elements of worship – Welcome, Learn, Reflect and Respond. Known to the children as Hello Time, Story Time, Thinking Time and Praying Time, each section is written especially for them, and Jack invites everyone,
  • to join in action songs set to well-known nursery rhyme tunes,
  • listen to and take part in Bible stories, and
  • think about and reflect on their own experience of the value in focus.

Follow up activities are suggested to support the value theme explored in the worship.

You can purchase Jack, the Labrador puppet from Imaginor Ltd or directly from The Puppet Company Ltd.
He is a soft, long-sleeved golden Labrador puppet and soon adored by children and adults alike!
