Work for the Lord Sunday School Lesson

The Israelites Build the Tabernacle - The Israelites used their talents and wealth to build a temple for God. God gives everyone special abilities and wants us to use our talents to work for him. God wants us to work hard at whatever we are doing, not for the praise of men, but of the Lord. The following Crafts and Activities come from the Sunday School Lesson, "Work for the Lord" on The Resource Room

 

Talk About Work

Ask your children what jobs their parents have. Ask them what they would like to do when they grow up.

Play "Important Jobs" Charades Game

Place your children into teams of twos and give each child a piece of paper with a description of the work being performed. Let the teams take turns acting out the scene and have the other children guess what they are doing. Remind your children that they can't say anything while they are acting. (If you have very young children, have older children or adults act out the scenarios and let the children guess what they are doing.)

Lazarus or Leprosy Bible Lesson Crafts and
Activities Ideas

 

Lazarus Sunday School Display

 

Lazarus Paper Doll

This paper doll can be used as a prop during your lesson, or you can have your children make them for a craft to reinforce the lesson.

Lazarus Paper Doll Bible Craft for Sunday School from www.daniellesplace.comWhat you will need:

White Cardstock (heavy paper)

Scissors

Colored pencils

Elmer's Paper Glue

Strips of white, Off-white material or paper towels

 

How to Make a Lazarus Paper Doll

1. Print out the paper doll patterns and loosely cut them out. Patterns for this craft are available to members only on The Resource Room.

2. Glue the patterns together on the white sides so that when you turn the paper doll over you see a different view of Lazarus.

3. Tape strips of material around the paper doll as you explain that when people died in Bible-times they would cover the body with strips of material. Place the paper doll in a "tomb" (You can use a box or something similar.) and then tell them the rest of the story. When Jesus tells Lazarus to come out, bring out the paper doll, turn it over so the side with his eyes open is facing toward the class, and unwrap the cloth.

Lazarus Clothespin Dolls Bible Craft for Sunday School from www.daniellesplace.com3. If you don't want to use clothespins and cups to make this game, you can use pictures of Lazarus and glue pictures of the tomb on envelopes. Before class print out patterns and have your children color them and cut them out. Glue the three tomb pictures on three different envelopes. Place the Lazarus paper doll in one of the envelope tombs. (Patterns available on The Resource Room)

4. Show your children how to play a game with the clothespin dolls. Place a doll in one of the three paper cups and place the paper "rock" on all the cups. (You sunday school lazarus pin bible craftcan also add a cookie or some other treat.)

5. Quickly mix up all the cups and then ask a child to point to the cup that he thinks "Lazarus" might be in. He then should say, "Lazarus, come out!" Open up the lid to find out if he picked the right cup. If he didn't pick the correct cup, have him try again. Let all your children have a turn. Tell them to take their games home with them and tell their parents and friends about Lazarus, and play the game with their families. You can also play this game with the "Lazarus" paper dolls and envelopes.

Unwrap Lazarus Review Sunday School Game

Divide your children up into two teams. Pick one child from each team to be Lazarus. Wrap up both children with TP. Take turns asking your children questions from the story and previous lessons. If a child answers correctly, they get to remove ten squares of TP from the "Lazarus" from their team. The team who unwraps their "Lazarus" first wins.

 

Lazarus Come Out, Lazarus Go In

 

Place a line of tape down the middle of your playing area. Designate one side "inside the tomb" and the other side "outside the tomb". Have the children stand anywhere they would like. Tell them that when you say, "Lazarus Come Out", they should all jump to the "outside of the tomb" side of the room. When you say, "Lazarus Go In", they should all jump to the "inside" side of the room. You will try to trick them to jump on the wrong side depending on what you say. If a child jumps to the wrong side, he is out. Keep playing until only one child is left. When you say "Lazarus go in or go out" always jump to the opposite side. The children may automatically follow you to that side even though you said something different.

Comment: Hi, Just to say we used the Lazarus story, crafts and games for our Sunday club last week ,which has children aged 3 - 10 years. We asked the children to make a cave from blankets and chairs and then played the "Lazarus come out, Lazarus go in game". All the children loved this game and we didn't have time to do any of the craft activities as they were having so much fun! We have recently joined your site and it is so refreshing to have some new ideas. Thank you very much!! Vanessa

A complete lesson about Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead is available on The Resource Room. This lesson includes Bible verse cards, printable displays to go along with the lesson, and printable crafts.

Leprosy Drama

In Bible class this week we did a short drama about Miriam and Aaron rebelling against Moses' leadership and God striking Miriam with leprosy. After God "talked" to Miriam and Aaron, I quickly sprinkled some baby powder on Miriam's face and arms, and, "poof!", she white with leprosy! The clean-up was a quick dust off. Sent in by Kelia Ballou from Houston, Texas

 

Lazarus Cookies

One of our other teachers taught the Lazarus Lesson last week to our 3 - 5 year olds and she had such an interesting craft/snack idea I wanted to share it. She made gingerbread men that the children pretended were Lazarus and then they wrapped them in strips of fruit roll up (fruit by the foot would also work well). The kids loved it so much they didn't want to eat their Lazarus' until they had brought them downstairs and showed them to their parents. This week when I asked them about last week's lesson they were able to retell it well. Thanks so much, we have really enjoyed your curriculum, Krista Sparrow
