Jesus Walks on the Water - Story, Song, Craft and Snack

Each week we have one Bible story that we focus on for the week. This week our Bible story is Jesus Walks on the Water. We are reading it each morning at Circle Time. We've also been singing Fishing in a Sailboat each morning.

Tuesday morning we spent a little more time focusing on this story with a craft, coloring page and snack.

First we did the Jesus Walks on Water Paper Craft. It was fun and I thought it turned out really cute.

While each child was waiting for a turn to make the craft they colored this take home sheet summarizing the story.

When I printed the paper craft I printed extra pages with the figure of Jesus on them to use with our snack. I cut out the figures and glued them to small popsicles sticks. I then stuck the ends of the popsicle sticks into small snack size bowls of blue jello that I had mixed up the day before. This represented Jesus walking on the water. I think this was the kids favorite part of the lesson.
When the finished eating their snack they used the figures as puppets.

This was a lesson the kids really enjoyed.
