Jonathan (1 Saumel 20) | Make 2


This weaved Jonathan puzzle craft is deceptive, it looks like it would be easy but actually takes quite a lot of jiggling to get the image to line up. Not suitable for very young groups but a good challenge for the older kids. Once completed it can look amazing with a drop of colour and a bold colour card behind it. Jonathan (1 Saumel 20) | Make 2

Jonathan (1 Samuel 20) | Play


The story of Jonathan warning David is a minefield of game ideas, with propelling arrows, unwitting helpers and secret messages there is a wealth of ways your activities can go.

Arrows – launching arrows across your teaching space may fill you with joy or dread, either way the kids will love it. You can be true to the story using tiny bows and arrows (offsite link) or print these arrow heads (pictured) and attaching them to felt tip pens to play drop arrows.

Shoot that arrow and say the code… sometimes you just need a basic craft that won’t tie you in knots trying to figure out how to get it looking right… thank God for the humble split pin. This is a craft for those groups that love colouring, for those who really only have a few minutes and those who know they will have to do all the cutting in advance. Jonathan (1 Saumel 20) | Make

Turn your felt pens into arrows and drop them on the target. Sometimes just a little bit of creativity can give a game a great boost, this game is totally functional without the craft option but even more memorable with it.

Includes 1 arrow head and one target on the first page & 4 extra arrow heads on the second page.

Essential Teachers notes:
Kids love puzzles, they love secrets, and they love tricking people… the stories of Jonathan and his sister Michael tricking their father to safeguard David will resonate with a child’s sense of both mischief and justice. As this story doesn’t involve many people it’s written so that it can be acted out. While this story doesn’t directly refer to Michal and her idol switching trick do feel free to add it in if it helps. Please note : Jonathan is a character of much controversy and this lesson has been careful to avoid that.

Main Passage : 1 Samuel 20
Additional passages : 1 Samuel 18 & 19
