Bible Story: Jesus Blessed the Children
Bible Text: Mark 10:13-16
- Construction paper hearts of different sizes
Teacher Preparation: Pre-cut several construction paper hearts of descending sizes, at least 5 sizes per student. On the smallest hearts, write “Jesus Loves Me No Matter What.”
Step 1. On the largest heart have children write or copy around the edges, “Jesus Loves Me.” On the next smaller heart have kids write, “When I’m Happy, When I’m Sad.” On the next smaller heart have students write, “When I’m Good,” and on the next smaller heart, “When I’m Bad.”
Step 2. Guide kids in carefully gluing the hearts one on top of the other, largest to smallest, with the smallest heart on top with the words, “Jesus Loves Me No Matter What!.”
