Healing at the Pool (John 5) | Make 2

 

This is the second craft for the Healing at the pool story, and both are very similar. Sometimes though it’s much more helpful o have a flatter version of a craft for kids to store or take away. This craft again features Bethesda pool and has a great story prompt by using the picture of the invalid before Jesus arrived printed on his mat ready to unfurl and tell his story.

Healing at the Pool (John 5) | Make

 

Some crafts open our eyes to a point in the story we sometimes forget to really examine. This little scene shows Jesus finding the yet to be healed invalid by the pool. It opens us to questions about the other ill people who witnessed this encounter, to questions about how the pool was seen to be healing and how we sometimes give up on our dreams. It’s also a rare JWL craft that’s best printed without colour so the children can add their own details in. Healing at the Pool (John 5) | Make

King Saul | Play

 

Saul’s story is huge and in this condensed lesson we have loads of themes that could be used for play activities, these games concentrate on the idea of a torn robe and a wilful king. Saul isn’t a bad character,simply put he tries to use his own logic rather than follow instructions, and when God ‘leaves’ him he knows his downfall is on the cards.

Peg tag – This traditional group game combines chase with the idea of taking part of someone’s clothing, a theme that ties nicely into Saul and the torn robes. Peg 3-5 spring loaded clothes pegs to the back of each child’s top. the aim is to get as many pegs as possible without losing your own. captured pegs can either be added to your own (sit first to show you can’t be caught) or dropped into your ‘teams’ bowl.

Today’s hero is Saul because he shows us the gift of TEARING.

Essential Teachers notes:
Saul is a strange character, he’s impressive visually, he’s chosen by a prophet and given the honour of being the first Israelite king, but despite the new status of the kingdom and his success in battle he is both impatient and wilful. Eventually his logic is his downfall as the prophet Samuel tires of his inability to follow instructions. Though the ramifications of his decisions may not be seen immediately his actions echo down though other biblical stories such as Esther.

Main Passage : 1 Samuel 12-14
