Bible Story: Jesus Healed Ten Lepers
Bible Text: Luke 17:11-19
Suggested Learning Outcome: This fun handprint craft will help children remember the importance of thanking God for answered prayers.
- Construction paper
- Permanent marker
- Wipes for cleanup if necessary
Step 1. Give each child a piece of construction paper and instruct them to write or copy the words “Jesus Healed 10” on the top of the paper and the words “Only 1 Said Thank You” on the bottom of the paper (see image).
Step 2. Assist children with covering both palms of their hands with washable paint. Allow the children to press their palms carefully onto the paper to create two clear handprints (see image).
Step 3. When the paint dries allow children to illustrate the tip of each finger to represent the 10 men. Instruct children to write the words, “Thank You!” along one of the fingers to show how one thanked Jesus (see image).
