Bible Story: Elisha Healed an Army Captain
Bible Text: 2 Kings 5:1-16
- Blue construction paper
Teacher Preparation: Pre-cut a wavy blue strip of construction paper to represent the river Jordan in the story. Pre-cut rectangles of white cardstock.
Step 1. Give kids a piece of cardstock and the blue construction paper strips and instruct them to glue the river on to the cardstock. Now assist each child with cutting a slit (as wide as the rectangles you pre-cut) into the card stock right above the water and in the center of the paper.
Step 2. Give the children the rectangle and instruct them to draw a picture of Naaman at the top, leaving the bottom of the rectangle blank.
Step 3. Now the children can decorate their river as they like with drawings of fish or clouds and birds in the sky. When their river is completed they can slide Naaman into the slit in the river, pull the tab at the bottom to make him appear and disappear in the water.
