Canaanite Woman (Matthew 15) | Craft 2


The Canaanite woman’s story is one of an outsider, someone who doesn’t fit into the narrative Jesus is telling. Jesus has a choice, does he stand by the categories and identifying labels or let the love of God overflow from the Jewish chosen people to the meet a Canaanite need? Jesus chooses the way of love. This is reflected in this paper craft all about God’s love and other things we may use as qualifiers for our love.


To make this craft you will need the printout, a pair of scissors and a glue stick.

Cut out all the pieces – the hearts have lines across the top, leave these attached so you are cutting a teardrop shape.


Mountain fold each small rectangular section on the biggest piece (ink on the outside).


Onto each of these small rectangles we are going to attach a heart. add some glue onto the rectangle avoiding the folds and attach the first heart – the order doesn’t matter.



Continue adding hearts until you have placed them all.



The long section above the hearts is folded over and goes behind. Turn your creation over and attach the pull tab to the end.



All that remains is to attach the large rectangle. Add glue into the two outside boxes and glue to the back, effectively creating a loop.



Turn your creation over and gently pull on the tab, each heart should lift in turn until you reach the final message.
