Gaius (3 John) | Craft 2


This second paper craft linked to Gaius’ lesson is a visual reminder that we leave a legacy with the people we meet. After the pop-up envelopes fiddly construction, this is a bid to make something interactive, but much simpler, for the younger ones.

I’ve provided the template partially coloured so the children can finish colouring or you can print in grey scale. This craft is best done with a touch of preparation beforehand.

Gaius (3 John) | Craft


This is a really lovely craft to show off to parents and friends at the end of the session, once complete the children seem to walk out with just an envelope, but inside a little pop up scene of Gaius receiving the letter from John appears.

This craft is a little delicate to construct, so not suitable for very young children. I would recommend printing in colour so children can take more time and care in cutting and construction. While the cuts don’t have to be exact, the more accurate the scissor work and folding, the better the card will operate.

Gaius (3 John) | Worksheet

Gaius has a hefty worksheet that encompasses quite a few elements found in John’s 3rd letter. I’d say it is a worksheet designed for independent readers working in small groups. It could be worked through as a whole group, but each child would need a sheet of their own. The worksheet looks more closely at the clues we have to Gaius’ character, gives us a puzzle to solve, and imagines the letter being written for us. The sheet ends with a verse to ponder and discuss.

To complete this worksheet the children will need 3 colouring pencils or pens, something to write with and a bible.

Today’s hero is Gaius because he shows us the gift of Love

Essential Teachers notes:
One would be more than forgiven for saying ‘Gaius who?’, he’s not exactly a Moses, Jonah or Peter but he is a man with a legacy and we all hope to leave a positive legacy with our lives. This story works best if you have either a bible or the bible passages printed out for members of the group to read.

Main Passage : 3rd book of John.
Other passages : Acts 19+20, Romans 16, 1 Corinthians 1.

Reputation is a powerful thing, and this lesson is all about urging our children to have a positive reputation, a welcoming spirit, and be examples of love.

Love notes – This is a treasure hunt game where you hide envelopes. the children need to find the envelopes, read the note inside, and then deliver the note to the person they think most needs to hear the words. They can either do this immediately or by writing the persons name on the outside of the envelope for later delivery.

Legacy footprints – for this game you need a large sheet roll of paper, a marker and some music. The idea of this game is to get the children to walk along the paper doing a dance. The first person steps on the paper and where his foot falls a footprint is drawn, they then dance along to the end. the second person must start on the first persons footprints, and mark their second step, the third person replicates the first and second steps and marks a third. Continue until the whole page is filled with footprints and everyone is doing the same silly dance – footprints can go in any direction.
