Rhoda’s Discovery (Acts 12) | Craft 1


I have some very little ones in my group and so I’m trying to put more younger crafts on for them. this one is very simple and reusable. I bought a cheap wooden block set from what the locals call a ‘Chinese’ shop and using sticky tack I made a maze for the kids to solve. They can use a finger to trace the route or a toy person, or a block with a picture attached with glue. Once solved you can let the children destroy it and make a picture of the house that Peter was looking for out of the blocks.

This story happens at a very sad time. One of Jesus’ special 12 followers had just died. Everyone was very sad and scared, because now another one of Jesus’ followers, Peter, was in the same prison.

Rhoda’s Discovery (Acts 12) | Games


This passage is all about Rhoda, probably a young girl just doing her everyday stuff, but bursting with excitement at what she finds. The story also encompasses Peter’s escape, so there is a lot of scope to tie into journeys, being led, finding, dreams, and angels!

Who’s at the Door – simple listening game involving placing one child one side of a barrier and another child calls out ‘let me in’, the first child has to guess who is calling. as children get older they disguise their voice and it gets harder.

In Prison – kind of a variation of musical statues where when the music stops you need you wait to be released from the prison by the ‘angels’. Via Scripture union
