At our July 19 Messy Church we had great fun 'Making a Splash'. We acted out the story of Peter walking on the water with Jesus in 'Open the Book' style and then tried walking on water ourselves (it was oobleck actually!). After some water games, we floated our 'waterlily prayers' and watched them open up - see the video.
