Jelly Babies and Jesus

The Brownies did this presentation in the church on Harvest Sunday.

This is a great story at any time but especially near Remembrance Day.  (Note that you have to use Bassetts Jelly Babies).

Jelly Babies when they were first made were not called jelly babies but Peace Babies because they were produced after the 1st World War and each colour represented a country which fought in the war.

But we all know that it was not long before the 2nd World War started and because sweets and  chocolate were not essential goods, the production of Peace Babies stopped.

But our story does not stop there, you see after the war a man decided to buy the factory where Peace Babies were made.  This man was a special man, as he loved Jesus.

Not many people know the secrets of Jelly Babies.  There are symbols hidden on each Jelly Baby which can help us to tell others about the wonderful love of Jesus Christ.

Black– reveals a heart which

represents God’s love for us all.

Green – you will see a baby crying which represents God’s sadness that people do not know of God’s love.

Red – You will see the B for blood as Jesus died to show how much he loved us and to show the way to heaven.

Yellow – is wearing a yellow necklace which represents the riches of Heaven.

Orange – is wearing a Bum bag which tells us we need to be prepared for Jesus coming again.

Update on the Peace Baby presentation the Brownies gave on Harvest Sunday.

Bassetts are repacking Jelly Babies as Peace Babies to commemorate the end of World War 1. Donations from sales will go to Help the Hero’s.
