Jesus Heals the Blind Man Game for Sunday School

Jesus Heals the Blind Man Game from www.daniellesplace.comThis game goes along with the Bible Lesson "When the Blind Can See and
the Seeing are Blind"
on The Resource Room, where children learn that Jesus can heal us both physically and spiritually.

Objects or shapes that represent different spiritual concepts are placed in bags. Children reach into the bags, feel the objects, and try to figure out what they are.

The students can then try to guess what spiritual truth the objects represent, or the teacher can tell them.

What you will need:

Printable Shapes Patterns from The Resource Room or the following objects: Small Bible, crown, heart, cross, lamb toy, candle. You will also need six lunch bags and scissors.

Blind Man Game Shapes

1. Before class print out the shape patterns onto card stock (Heavy Paper) or collect the items listed. Place each shape or item in a bag.

2. In class have your children take turns trying to discover what shape or object is in the bag, and what it might represent relating to spiritual sight.

3. Give a bag to a child and tell him to reach into the bag and try to feel the object or paper shape that is in the bag and guess what it might be. If the child can't guess, have him give it to the next child to try.

4. After a child has guessed correctly read what is on the shape or explain how each item relates to spiritual sight.

Lamb - "Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!" John 1:29. When we recognize that Jesus is the lamb of God we gain spiritual sight.

Crown - "Jesus is King of Kings and Lord or Lords" Revelations 19:16. When we recognize who Jesus is we gain spiritual sight.

Bible - "Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ." Romans 10:17. When we read God's words and believe we receive spiritual sight.

Cross - "Jesus gave his life for you on the cross so you live in righteousness." 1 Peter 2:24. When we understand how Jesus died for our sins and ask for forgiveness we gain spiritual sight.

Heart - God loves you. He sent his own son to die for you so you might have eternal
life. - John 3:16. When we realize how much God loves us we gain spiritual sight.

Candle - "Jesus said, 'I am the light of the world.'" John 9:5. When we recognize Jesus as the light of the world we gain spiritual sight and no longer live in darkness.

envelope boat diagram for Jesus walked on the water2. Place the patterns on the envelope and trace them onto the envelope. Cut the sail and the boat from the envelope. (Invitation-sized envelopes work best because tehy allow for a larger sail, but the letter-sized envelopes will also work.)

3. Use a sharp object such as a letter opener to score the fold lines on both sides of the boat shape. If you don't have a sharp object, you can just trace the line using a pen and heavy hand. (This is an important step because it will make it easier to fold the envelope.

4. Fold up the bottom of the boat shape 1/2" where indicated on the pattern. Turn the envelope over and fold it up again on the same line. Do the same thing for the other fold lines, folding them up and back.

5. Have your children color the boat shape before assembling the boat. You may also want them to write the Bible verse or short saying on the sail.

Envelope Boat Diagram 1 Envelope Boat Diagram 2
6. To assemble the boat open the boat shape with your thumbs pulling out the sides so that two triangle shapes appear at the corners. 6. Press down on the tips of the envelope to form smaller triangles (pre-folded lines) at the corners.

Play "Keep Your Eyes on Jesus" Water Strider Game

Keep your eyes on Jesus Water Strider GameChildren spin the water strider wheel to see in which direction the water strider is looking. The child or teacher reads the thought and then the child gives an example of when someone might take their eyes off of Jesus when they are thinking that thought. For example, if the water strider is looking at "It might hurt." The child may say, "A person may say this when he is going to get a shot." The teacher can comment that if this person remembers that Jesus will be with them, they won't be so afraid.

If they "keep their eyes on Jesus", he will help them get through it. If the water strider is looking at the word "Jesus", you can give the child a treat or make up some other reward.

This craft goes along with the Sunday School Lesson "Keep Your Eyes on Jesus" on The Resource Room. (A Pattern is available to members only.)

 

Shaving Cream Fun

Squirt shaving cream on a table and sprinkle blue glitter to resemble water. Before hand have your children decorate wooden craft spoons as Jesus and Peter.

"Keep Your Eyes on the Verse" Bible Verse Review

Print out the Bible verse to make a large poster.

Pick about five students to stand in the back of the room against a wall. Stand at the front of the room with the poster in your hands. Point to one of the words on the poster and see if any of the children can read the word from the back of the room. (If one of the children can see the word, try using a smaller poster.) If no one can read the word, take a step forward. Ask your children again if anyone can read the word. Keep playing until a child can read the word you are pointing to. Have the children say the whole verse and then pick another group of children.

This activity goes along with the Sunday School Lesson "Keep Your Eyes on Jesus" on The Resource Room. Available to members only.)

Children might enjoy making a pail of worms for their friends. They can include a Bible verse with the snack also or write something on the outside. Remind them that fishermen use worms as bait to catch a fish. We are using Gods' words as bait to catch people for Jesus.

(This Activity idea comes from the lesson "Go Fish" on The Resource Room where you will find a complete lesson on this theme including, printable Bible verse cards, crafts, and review games.)

5. Make "Fisher of Men" Pictures

Fishers of Men Bible Activity Sheet for Sunday SchoolWhat you will need: Card stock, paper, crayons, sticks, yarn, tape, and small bobbers (optional)

What to do:

1. Before class draw pictures of children in a fish shape and cut them out and print out. Print the Bible verse on a sheet of paper. (Printable patterns are available to members on The Resource Room.)

2. In class have your children color the "fish kids", punch a hole at the top, tie a length of yarn to the hole and place a bobber onto the yarn. Give them a stick and help them tie the yarn to the string. Tape the fishing pole stick to the background paper with the Bible verse.

Caution: Do not use pointy sticks with young children. Make sure that they tape their fishing poles onto the paper. If you don't want to use sticks because you are afraid someone might get hurt, draw a fishing pole on the paper and then tape the string to the end of the fishing pole drawing. Make sure you let the children know that the bobbers are not toys. You could also draw a paper bobber instead of using a real one. They should not play with them. They are only for looking at and reminding them of the lesson. Also let their parents know. (I am doing the Fishers of Men lesson and I love the paper with the bobber! But I am not able to use the bobbers so I dipped small Styrofoam balls 1/2 way into red paint and then dipped some toothpicks or you can use skewers into white paint. I cut these so they could be placed in the top of my make believe bobber and then glued it onto your memory verse sheet with the boy or girl. I let the kids dip the bobbers into the paint but if you don't want to do that you can do this ahead of time. This was very inexpensive. Thanks, Nancy)

In class remind your children that Jesus paid the temple tax because he didn't want to offend anyone or make them think that he was doing something wrong.

Write the Bible verse on the board and explain it to your children. Remind them that Jesus told Peter to go down to the lake and put his fishing pole in the water. The first fish he caught would have a coin in its mouth. Tell your children that one of the fishes on the floor has a coin in its mouth and they are going to try and be the one who catches the fish with the coin.

Have your children take turns catching fish. When a child picks up a fish have him look on the back of the fish to see if he caught the fish with the coin. If he didn't, ask him if he knows what the word is on the fish. Have him find the same word on the board and tape his fish under the same word on the board. Keep playing until all the fish have been caught.

If you have older children, go over the verse several times without writing it on the board and see if they can put the fish in order to spell out the verse.

5. Bible Verse Relay - (Older Children) Make two set of fish cards and divide your children up into two teams. Place all the fish on the table upside down. On the word "go" see which team can turn over all the fish cards and place them in order first.

 

Miracles - Jesus Turns Water into Wine

Water to Wine

First we provided large gifts for the kids to open just like at a wedding. Inside they found rolls of toilet paper which they used to dress up like brides! We served wedding cake for our snack. Then we "magically" turned water into wine by having cups with pre-measured grape Kool-Aid powder in them (make sure to use pre sweetened). We took a large clear pitcher of water and when we poured it into the cups it changed to wine! We explained to the children that Jesus really did perform this miracle and we were only pretending, etc. It was a big hit! Lisa

 

Make "Water to Wine Pots"

sunday school Water into Wine bible CraftFor this craft, you need six toilet paper rolls per child (You can just roll up some construction paper into tube if you don't have TP rolls.). Wrap the rolls with different colored construction paper. Staple them together in two rows of three. Then staple the two rows together. Give children six pieces of blue tissue paper each (water) and have them stuff one piece into each tube. Give them each a sign that says "water" and help them to glue it to the side of the pots. Turn the pots up side down. Give each child six pieces of purple tissue paper (wine) and have them stuff one piece into each tube. Give each child a sign that says "wine" and help them to glue it to the other side of the pots. Now, the children have something to take home that will remind them of Jesus' First Miracle: Water to Wine. (This craft idea was sent in by Theresa Bostick.)

 

Veils

Make veils for the girls to wear on their heads using white 1/4" elastic and white netting and bow-ties for the boys to wear around their necks using black 1/4" elastic, Velcro and black felt. She also took a group-wedding picture. Thanks, Theresa for all the great ideas.

4. Water Water Wine Game - This is a game that I remember playing when I was in children's church over 20 years ago. Instead of saying duck, duck, goose, have the children say water, water, wine. This is an easy way to reinforce Jesus' first miracle of him turning the water into wine. I use it with my 1 and 2 year olds now and they love it.

5. Have your children glue wedding confetti to a picture of a bride. Sent in by Jeannette

5. Play a Bible verse memory game.

Play a Bible Verse Memory Game Go over the Bible verse several times so that the children can say it without help. Have the children all stand in a large circle. Give a child a beanbag or other object. Play like hot potato. When you start the music the children start passing the beanbag, but they must first say the verse before they pass it. For young children use just the last part of the verse ("He cares about what happens to you."). When the music stops the child who is holding the bean bag must sit down. You can also have more than one bean bag going around the circle at the same time.

You can also play by having the children pass the beanbag until the music stops. The child who is holding the beanbag must say the Bible verse.

Have a Wedding Dress Contest - Break the children up into teams of 3 or 4. Give each team a roll of TP and have them dress up one of their team members as a bride. Have the children vote on which bride looks the best.
