Tiddlywinks is Scripture Unions’ Bible teaching and activity resource for toddlers and preschool children up to 5 years old.
The key to success in every Tiddlywinks combined leadership resource and children's activity materials pack is in its built in flexibility.
Just like the children’s game, you can make Tiddlywinks a sharing experience that lasts for less than an hour or keep your under 5s creatively engaged for a whole day.
Under 5s resources for any time and place
Flexibility makes Tiddlywinks ideal for children’s activities in parallel to an adult service or full day’s holiday club. Materials and activities are designed to keep children’s attention and engage their minds and hands.
Solidly Bible based, Tiddlywinks has fun and laughter built in. Activities, puzzles and crafts are just what children would want to do and enjoy doing and leaders will enjoy leading.
Photocopiable activities in one big book
Each Tiddlywinks pack gives you a big book with 25 Bible based activity sessions. Each session provides a range of activities for you to choose from and tailor make the fun learning experience for your group.
