Paul Heals... craft

We looked at the healings of Paul, as a craft response for the 6-11 year olds we made pipe cleaner dolls that moved to remind us that the people in the story were able to move/ jump for joy.

Guidelines for making:

CD Fish

I just found these and thought actually of all "perscriptive" crafts (which are not my preference to  do with children but some certainly love them so I do) CD fish are one of my favourite! And there are a log fish stories in the Bible!

Easter Play

On Easter day in church these resources were available for the youngest children to play with. In the afternoon I returned to church to collect items to play our way through the story.
These cubes accompanied the resources, pictorially telling key parts of story and identifying emotions to relate to each part of the story
The triumphant entry, again "Hosanna" was immediately shouted! (note how the gates/ arch are held up :)

The last supper (the cube has another use) 
At this meal there was also chocolate cake!! (perhaps chocolate on brain since we had easter egg interludes)

Praying in the garden - the friends are actually sleeping!
 The saddest of days! 
 Still a sad day,  Jesus buried 
 A very happy day Jesus is alive!!
