Jairus & Daughter (Luke 8) | Make

 

This is the old version – New Version can be found here.

The moment of a Jairus’ daughter waking is definably the most dramatic visually of the story. This paper model craft is a nice way of capturing that moment, and even has moving parts so the girl can indeed ‘wake up’ as Jesus commanded her to do.

This is quite a long tutorial, but the craft is mostly self-explanatory.The craft is not made to fold flat but to be a standing piece. Please note I have not included a Jesus figure.

Jairus & Daughter (Luke 8) | Make You will need a pair of scissors, a craft knife, a glue stick, and both pages from the PDF (Colour | Black and White). I would recommend printing this on thin card, but it’s not necessary.

 

Jairus & Daughter (Luke 8) | Make Start by cutting out the shapes on the instructions page. Try and cut them carefully and don’t worry if you separate the back and front of the girl, we’ll stick them together later. Cut the 2 slits in the bed shape between the parallel lines, this is best done with a craft knife, and can be done before the session if you would prefer. Jairus & Daughter (Luke 8) | Make

Jairus & Daughter (Luke 8) | Make Glue the tops of her head together. This is important to give the girl strength. make sure you let the glue dry for a moment. when finished the piece should look like this from the side. If you get this bit wrong it won’t work 🙁 Jairus & Daughter (Luke 8) | Make

 

Jairus & Daughter (Luke 8) | Make Slide the pull tab through both slits with the girl laying on the bed.

Jairus & Daughter (Luke 8) | Make Fold the table and the tab on the bowl of food. Attach the bowl of food lining up the dotted lines stick area. The bowl should sit up. Fold the bed into a box and add glue to the edge tabs. Jairus & Daughter (Luke 8) | Make

 

Jairus & Daughter (Luke 8) | Make Fold the background along the floor line. The boxes on the floor indicate where the bed and table should go.(The speech bubble can go anywhere you wish) Jairus & Daughter (Luke 8) | Make

 

Jairus & Daughter (Luke 8) | Make Pull the tab and watch her sit up.

NB: If you want to secure the background then some extra glue on the back of the table and bed will make the structure more secure.

  1. thank you so much for everything, your website is so helpful may you be blessed always

  2. I am using this craft for a children’s teaching session on Luke 8 vs 40-56 – about Jairus’s daughter… I am looking at a completed model now on my bookcase!

    Love the crafts! I am using them for a church plant in Mexico. Thanks so much!

    I just have a question. If we are doing this for really young kids —can we include a Jesus figure so they can retell the story to their parents when they get home?

    • Kate says:

      Sadly, I do not have a Jesus graphic to add in. If you wanted to prop up a character to represent Jesus I would probably use Joseph, Paul, Aquilla or Nicodemus – their graphics are available on thier heores pages. Hope that helps.

    • Lynne says:

      Thank you Kate. I will do that. We are using it mostly constructed for 3 year olds so I think they need to be able to see Jesus to make the connection . I was thinking of using a moveable arm so Jesus could touch her then have her sit up. This is an amazing craft. Wow I’m so glad this site is here. Thank you sooooo much.

  5. […] This is another very cute craft from Jesus Without Language. […]
