Young Jesus (Luke 2) | Craft 2


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 (Luke 2) | Craft 2 As well as the printout,to make this craft you will need a pair of scissors and some foam spacers. If you can’t find foam spacers try cutting pieces of tick cardboard and using glue-sticks for an almost identical result. You may also need colouring pens if you are printing without colour which is recommended.
