Christmas prompt cards

Advent is a great time to open those little doors and remove the chocolate or toy within, but as we do this why not add in one of these prompt cards? They number from the 1st to the 25th and follow the story of Christmas through characters and objects.

They also compliment into the advent candle wreath craft and the traditional 4 characters used to symbolize the candles on an advent ring.

Good Samaritan (Luke 10) | Make 2

 

This Good Samaritan storytelling aid combines the fun of a lift the flap book with the ease of a simple craft even younger kids can make. The best way to use this craft is to make a version in advance so you can show the children how it works and how it tells the story. For our international friends there is a version with no text on it. Good Samaritan (Luke 10) | Make 2

Good Samaritan (Luke 10) | Play

 

The good Samaritan had every reason to keep on walking, stopping may not have been praised by either the community he came from nor that which he was going to serve, it was a costly choice too. These games focus on the practical help he gave the man.

A kind voice – This is a simple and classic game that goes by many names where you need to identify a voice. Seat one volunteer with their back facing the group, alternatively blindfold the individual. Another member of the group then says “am I your neighbor?” as they try and disguise their voice. Ideally the volunteer should respond “yes (insert name of group member), you are my neighbor”. Repeat with a different volunteer. Whose voice was easy/hard to identify? Who really was your neighbor?

Good Samaritan (Luke 10) | Make 1

 

The good Samaritan is, in many respects, a lesson in empathy and there is no easier way to teach empathy that by having the children act out the story. This little theater craft allows just that – minus the robbers and violence. It is a craft best done in small groups as there is quite a lot of cutting to do.

This is JWL’s second bible theater and you can use them interchangeably if you want to – the other was attached to the Andrew lesson.
