All dressed up and . . .

All dressed up and . . .

Ready to be baptized, again and again and again 🙂
I make a point of having babies with different skin tones in my room. Baptism *always* comes off the shelf, and the children love to choose a baby who looks like them. These are about $6 each from Target, and I made the little white robes for them from felt with a slit in the top — about as simple as can be!

About threegreatdays

The Rev. Dr. Rosemary Beales is a Godly Play Trainer in the U.S.; an Episcopal Priest; Chaplain at St. Stephen's & St. Agnes School in Alexandria, Virginia; a Godly Play Practitioner since 1996; and a mother and grandmother. Every day I get to be with 400 children at school and on weekends when I'm lucky, with my four terrific grandsons and three lively granddaughters. As a Godly Play practitioner, I want to spread the word about this life-giving, Montessori-based way of nurturing children in the Christian story and life. Godly Play, the creation of the Rev. Dr. Jerome Berryman and his wife Thea, is used in many denominations and in many countries, and has been translated into at least seven languages. This blog is not an official publication of the Godly Play Foundation (see but seeks to be a clearinghouse for ideas and experiences of teachers, trainers, and parents. Join the conversation!

    It’s not many days since I was thinking about how fair-skinned my baptism doll is. I don’t know why it never occurred to me that I might have more than one!
