|This paper craft of the Centurions servant being healed used a little flip to expand the scene. It shows how the centurion doesn’t leave the room and yet conveys his faith through messengers to Jesus – pictured through the window outside. It’s a perfect craft for groups who love coloring or those with really really limited time. It’s also a lovely craft for younger groups to assemble as it goes together like a 2 piece jigsaw.|
|To make this craft you will need a pair of scissors, a glue stick, and a craft knife. This craft works well printed on standard paper but even better printed on thicker paper or card,

I’d strongly recommend preparing the slit in advance. Us ea craft knife to make a square bracket shape where the double lines are drawn.|
|Cut out both shapes.|
|Taking the larger piece fold along the vertical lines. These are marked with small valley and mountain icons to show which direction they go.|
|Once folded you’ll see how the middle section covers the picture.|
Carefully glue the missing picture piece into position
If you need to add colour now is the time to do so. Take special care to use the same colours for the centurion.
Tip : colour the image all folded first!
|Talk with the youngsters about the various items and people, in and outside the centurions house. Start with the folded image and then have them open the image and describe what is happening.|
