Man with four friends craft

Sometimes it’s nice to make a craft that you can also use for telling and retelling the Bible story.

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 of a house and then lower him down to the feet of Jesus. The paper mat was rolled up as part of the story too.
