Bible Story: Nicodemus Visited Jesus
Bible Text: John 3:1-16
- Red tissue paper
- Red or pink construction paper
- Craft eyes
Teacher Preparation: Prepare heart templates for kids to cut out during class, one large and two small hearts. If you have very young children, you may want to pre-cut the hearts ahead of time. Pre-cut strips of red tissue paper.
Step 1. Give each child a heart template to cut out. When hearts are ready, give each child two strips of red tissue paper and instruct them to accordion fold the strips into small squares. When the strips are unfolded, guide kids in gluing the strips to the sides of the large heart. Instruct children to glue the small hearts to the ends of the strips.
Step 2. Have children glue craft eyes onto their heart and draw a happy face to illustrate a new and happy heart, with open arms full of love.
