Jesus Calms the Storm Jello Snack

I made this snack for our lesson about when Jesus calmed the storm.  The small cups with lids came from Walmart in a package of twenty.  I made five or six small packages of blue Jello and evenly distributed it between the cups, then put them in the fridge to set up.  (Just follow the […]

Jesus Walks on Water Snack

This is the supremely easy snack we had for our lesson about faith, featuring the story of Jesus and Peter walking on water.  I saw the idea originally at Our Littlest Disciples. Just grab some graham crackers and break them in half.  Spread blue frosting on the cracker and place two Teddy Grahams standing up […]

Jesus Walks on Water Lesson Intro

This is the intro or object lesson I had planned for our lesson about Jesus and Peter walking on water.  I really enjoy doing a quick initial activity to grab the kids’ attention and get them thinking about our topic. Fill a dish pan or bucket with water.  Ask your assistant or a child to […]

Jesus & Peter Walk on Water Craft

Walking on Water Demonstration

Jesus Walks on Water Snack

Our snack for the Jesus Walks on Water lesson was blue jello, with a Jesus figure taped to a spoon and stuck into the jello.  It looks like he’s walking on water, doesn’t it?  The Jesus figure is from this craft.  Since we were doing this craft anyhow, I just took six of the Jesus […]

Bible Story Theatre: Jesus Walks on Water

To act out the story of Jesus walking on the water, we made a cardboard boat.  It was made from two gaylord boxes, which my husband got from work.  One end of each box was cut open so that the flap could be taped to the inner wall of the other box, making them more […]
