Materials Needed: White construction paper, crayons, scissors.
Instructions: Fold a white sheet of construction in half long ways. Draw the outline for half of a tree and cut out. Color. Draw a picture of Zacchaeus and cut out. The tree will stand because it is slightly folded in the middle. Zacchaeus can be placed in the tree.
Activity: Children write the Bible verse on Post It notes, putting one word on each note. Two or three sheets of construction paper are then taped together the long way, depending on the length of the verse. The children put the notes in the correct order on the paper. Then they choose to remove any word they want and say the verse. They continue until the verse has totally disappeared -- like magic! Encourage the children to take the activity home and use with their parents and siblings.
