Wedding at Cana (John 2) | Play

 

A seven day wedding may seem crazy or completely normal, depending on your culture, but trying to work out how much drink for such an event must have been a challenge. These games look at the event as a whole, the joy of the party, the planers preparation and the way Jesus, together with the servants, stopped it being memorable for the wrong reasons.

Water Table – a play water table is something usually reserved for the preschool or infants, but playing with water is a great way into this story. If you can’t access one then use the largest flat container you can find. Add in cups, scoops funnels and various strainers, simple bath toys tubes especially. You can also extend to colour mixing with a drop of water based food colouring or cordials. Add in challenges for older kids, eg. “Can you find a way of filling the sieve?” or “how far can you get the water to travel?”

Wedding at Cana (John 2) | Make 1

 

This is a classic craft for an ever popular story. It used a small window and a split pin to show the water changing into wine. When the transformation took place is unknown but that water was often added to wine is a staple fact of the time and region. This craft is quick and simple to do, it’s also a good craft for younger groups and the cutting is very forgiving – though I’d recommend preparing by removing the window in advance.

Today’s hero is Jesus, he shows us the gift of PROVISION.

Essential Teachers notes:
There is a lot of details in this story that may peak a child’s interest, the need to finish the house, the wedding clothes, the relationship between the different parties, the idea of a head servant being master of the feast, the expensive water jars and the fascinating idea that Jesus would provide choice wine even if it was before ‘his time’.

I’ve chosen to make this wedding that of Jesus’ brother James, it helps explain why Mary intervened and why Jesus was not only invited but all his crowd was also there. I’ve been careful not to have James and Mary refer to each other as mother and son to be sensitive to those traditions that may struggle with this though their relationship is obviously family of some sort.
