|This Prodigal son craft is a classic and simple enough for any age. The scene of the father running to meet his son is a beautiful reminder of God’s love for us.
|To make this craft you will need a pair of scissors, a craft knife, a hole punch one printout page and four split-pins. I’d recommend either printing of stiff paper/card or mounting this one. You may want to make the raft knife slit in advance for younger groups.

Cut all four pieces. There is an easycut white border on the pigs. This craft does not require precise cutting as long as the mechanism is not severed.
|Make holes in the white circles, a hole punch is ideal for this – if you have younger groups this can be done in advance.
|There are 2 white rectangles that also need to be removed. While the craft will work without this extra step it becomes very flimsy.
|Start by attaching the two pig pieces in place using split pins.
|Thread the long handled piece through the slits so the handle is on the front at the right of the craft
|Attach the 2 remaining split pins to connect the pigs – this is the hardest task so younger kids may need help.
|Hold one handle in each hand and move inwards and outwards to make the pigs eat.
