Young Jesus (Luke 2) | Craft 2

Young Jesus at the temple layered craft

Layered image crafts are simple and yet lovely keepsake crafts. This one for Young Jesus shows him in the temple talking to the crowd. This moment is really significant because here Jesus is showing us that while he is still almost 2 decades away from his main ministry time, his earthly relationship with God as his father is not something that just develops overnight.

Young Jesus at the temple layered craft materials

To make this craft, you will need the 1-page template printout and scissors. You may want to use spacers (foam or cardboard), and a hole punch.

Colour if required, then onto cutting. Use a hole punch to start the kids cutting the space in the middle of the frame.

This craft will look as good as your cutting skills but is forgiving if you skirt around small details like the indents on the pillars.

Young Jesus at the temple layered craft attach spacers

Add foam spacers (or cardboard pieces) to the back of the large step piece first and position.

Next add the small step, this goes at the base, not in the middle.

Young Jesus at the temple layered craft add character

Add a spacer to the back of Jesus and put him in the middle of the picture. This will ‘squash’ the top step.

Next, add the pillars, we do these last so we can move around the Jesus figure more easily.

Lastly, add spacers to the frame, then position.
(I found it better not to add any spacers to the crowd pieces.)
