This is a really straightforward pop-up card mechanism that shows Jesus removing the barrier the disciples were proving to be between himself and the children. It features the hero graphics provided with the lesson.
My printer was behaving strangely, I apologise for the weak-looking images.
To make this craft, you will need the 1-page template printout, scissors, and a glue. Bast printed on heavy paper or thin card.
Start by adding your colour if required and cutting out the four pieces. You will get better results if you remove all the dotted lines. The children have an optional white border to make cutting easier.
Fold the support along the lines, it should end up looking like a hook!
The only other fold is on the background. Fold this tab upwards towards the image.
Now to attach the bits altogether. Start with the support, though the order really doesn’t matter. Add glue to the box on Jesus and stick the hook end of the support, grey side downwards, onto it.
Next, stick on the children. You’ll see there is a faint image for you to line up if you find that helpful.
Add glue to the box on Jesus and stick the hook end of the support, grey side downwards, onto it.
Add glue to the big tab on the background and glue the front piece in place. It’s worth taking a bit of time to make sure this lines up correctly.
No matter which order you’ve chosen, the last thing to glue is the second end of the support. Make sure you’ve flattened the support fully and the grey side is facing away from you, then add the glue and close the ‘card’.
Open close, remove and recreate the barrier, read the words, imagine the reactions.
