Be Quiet – Unclean spirit (Mark 1) | Craft 2


There is a moment in this weeks story where the unclean spirit responds to Jesus’ words. It comes in Verse 26 where it is written “The impure spirit shook the man violently and came out of him with a shriek.” It’s one of those details that kids acting out the story will grab onto, a physical movement that puts life into the account. This craft captures this moment with a rolling papercraft mechanism.

ps. I know it looks like it won’t work, I had the same doubts, so I’ve added a short video clip at the end to show it in action!

Be Quiet – Unclean spirit (Mark 1) - Games


Interruptions during worship are something we may be far too familiar with. In this passage from Mark 1, where a man with an impure spirit interrupts, Jesus is very much to the point commanding him to ‘be quiet’. These games play on the ideas of interruptions, sounds, identity and authority.

What’s that noise – have your child(ren) identify various sounds. Keep it simple and make the sounds yourself, farm animals, vehicles, sirens etc. Alternatively search online for “guess the sound” videos.

Be Quiet – Unclean spirit (Mark 1) | Craft 1


The ‘Be Quiet!’ or ‘unclean spirit’ passage is a story about a character who shouts out. This lends itself well to puppetry! The kids will be having full blown conversations with this craft. I can imaging it won’t just be Jesus who is tempted to shout ‘Be Quiet!’ after a while, but making a story memorable by engaging with it is the aim of bible crafts!

Be Quiet - Unclean spirit (Mark 1) | Story

Today’s bible hero is the shouting man because he shows us the gift of Release.

Essential Teachers notes:
This story is one of those encounters that is really hard to explain away. There is not reason why a man with a mental illness would recognise Jesus as God. All the same, it is quite clear that Jesus does not want whatever is possessing the man to keep shouting. It’s not time yet for the penny to drop amongst many of his followers yet! Jesus sees a man who needs help and heals the affliction, releasing the man’s mind and in the process releasing his mouth too!

Tell this story or a similar one of your choice from a favourite bible translation or story book. This version is supplied for inspiration, feel free to omit or embellish to give it your personal voice.

Main passage: Mark 1
Additional Passages: none specific.
