The story is from Luke 5:17-26. In the story bag we had a man and his mat.
Then four friends.
And the crowds of people in the house. During the story we did actions – climbing the steps, digging through the roof. At the end of the story the man rolls up his mat and walks!
Our craft was something I’ve done in another group before.
One of the homes Jesus visited was the place where the paralysed man was healed. Luke 5:17- 26. If you look very closely you can just see crowds of people in the model of the house. To tell the story to young children you could use lego duplo figures.( Of course avoid the clearly identifiable charcters such as Bob the Builder) The mat is brown paper and material – chosen because it has to be rolled up. It fits really well in the duplo figures hand.
If you didn’t want to use duplo for telling the story you could let a small group play with the figures and model afterwards to retell the story to you.
