Sometimes it’s nice to make a craft that you can also use for telling the Bible story. We have craft before and after story time but it really doesn’t matter – it can either be a taster for what’s to come or a recap of the story that’s just been told.
The story is from Matthew 9:1-8; Mark 2:1-12 and Luke 5:17-26.
For the craft we made the man’s mat by decorating sugar paper with large pieces of tissue paper and then we made a man – on one side he was happy and on the other side he was sad. We used fabric for clothes and wool for hair.
When telling the story I pretended to carry the man up the steps to the roof and then lower him down to the feet of Jesus. The paper mat was rolled up as part of the story too.
In our group for Reception – Year Two we are doing a series of Bible Stories that can be found here. This week we began with the man through the roof story (healing of the paralysed man) from Mark 2:1-12.
We made a craft using a square envelope for the house. This is my version. The picture of the man is from page 79 of the free lesson available from Teachkids.eu. The lesson is found in the Preschooler section and is called ‘Little kids can know God through his miracles’.
And these are the crafts created by the children
