Here’s a short story to share with younger children. Some ideas for a story bag – puppets or dolls to represent the characters, picture of clouds.
Story from Luke 24:50-53 and Acts 1:6-11
Bible truth for toddlers – Jesus will come back again
‘Jesus had died but was alive again! His friends saw him and spoke to him. Lots of people saw him. He wasn’t a ghost. He could eat food! He was really alive again.
He had a job for his friends to do, ‘I want you to tell other people all about me. Tell them about the things that I said and the things that I did. Tell them how I died for them and came alive again,’ he told them.
Jesus told his friends to tell everyone the Good News that he was the Saviour. They were to tell everyone in all the world.
When Jesus had spent time with his friends they went for a walk together. Then something very special happened. Jesus was taken back to heaven. He went up, up, up and into the sky and was gone. They couldn’t see him anymore.
While they were looking up into the sky two angels came and spoke to them, ‘Why are you looking up into the sky? This same Jesus who has gone up to heaven will come back again.‘
One day Jesus will come back to earth again. He won’t come as a baby. He will come as the King.’
Summer weather has arrived! Time for ice cream and an ice cream craft. All you need is …items the same or similar to the things in the picture below, download the cone and tub to cut out or make your own and have some glue ready!
Glue the cone and tub first and of course these can be decorated. Then add the ice cream scoops. I’ve used cup cake cases of different sizes, circles would be great too. The sprinkles are from the red wrapping ribbon. Use what you have.
A couple of colouring pages … to colour or decorate with tissue paper, crepe paper etc.
A few years ago I made a bus colouring page with the words, ‘wherever I go God is there’. (You can find a story and bus colouring page here) But when we are at home and can’t go to many places, God is there too.
