|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.|
|To make this craft you will need a pair of scissors, glue, and the printout. I also used a pen to help me start the rolling.

Glue the two arm pieces together and trim if needed.

|Cut out the mat and roll it up tightly.|
