Peter gets it wrong (Matthew 16) | Craft 1


As we journey through Peter’s ups and downs it’s clear that his bravery to speak from the heart both earns his accolades and dumps him in hot water too. here Peter gets it wrong clearly. This passage is one that really seems odd until you consider the background, Peter knew what a messiah looked like – he’s be a king, a warrior, a savour to his people with the power of God behind him – Jesus decimates that idea pretty quickly. This isn’t a complex craft and lends itself well to groups who like the colouring process or those who want a craft in a hurry.


To make this craft you will need the printout, a pair of scissors and some glue. Print in colour for a speedy craft or for very young children.

Position the smaller pieces tabs in the oval.
Now colour it all in if you didn’t print in colour.
