Eutychus never actually say’s a word in his encounter with Paul, apart from knowing he was young and sleepy we know very little about him. These games therefore link to sleep and falling.

safe landing – a bit like playing sand boules this is a throwing game where you aim for a target. Use small balls or soft coits and create a soft target using a small pillow. If you have a large group then work in teams. Make the game harder for older kids be creating a window they must fall through. You can do this simply using the back of a chair.


Wakey Wakey faces – you may want to use the printout for this game. The idea is that the youngsters need to collect the parts of the face to wake up their character. Split the youngsters into 2 teams and have them stand in their team area. Complete your faces as a relay race, with only one team member able to run at a time.



This is a really simple paper construction that allows you to turn the handle and see Eutychus fall, then open the flap to see Paul arrive to help him. There are no words on this craft so it is suitable for any language. The craft can be made with or without the lift the flap element. You will need one printout and a split pin per child.

Essential Teachers notes:
This story is told using actions. The simple key words or buzz words are listed at the beginning. This story is either miraculous in it’s healing or it’s fortune, either way doesn’t matter as much as the reassurance of the crowd. Equally Eutychus is in no way to blame for the events, on the contrary, this story shows us that sometimes our human limitations, even when they seem to be hindering us, can be a powerful witness. Lastly, Eutychus is a tough name to pronounce – choose something you can twist your tongue around and stick to it.

Stories are given for inspiration, do use your own words and details
