Paralyzed Man Let Down Through Roof Bible Story Art & Craft Project

Scenic Background ~ Art

Needed for Each Child: 1 sheet of light cardboard or heavy construction paper, crayons, glue, sand or oatmeal.

Activity: Fold the paper in half. The top half becomes a backdrop for the craft activity with the children drawing a background scene of trees, bushes, sun, clouds, etc. The bottom half is the ground where the house from the craft activity will sit. Have the boys and girls put glue on this half and then sprinkle with sand or oatmeal.

Playdough House ~ Craft

Needed for Each Child: A chunk of playdough approx. 3” x 1” x 1” in size; 2 drinking straws, scissors.

Activity: The children can create a biblical house from the playdough which has steps on the outside leading to the roof. (If possible, show a picture of a house in New Testament times.) The straws can be cut to fit on the roof for tiles. The houses are then placed on the scenic background the children made during art.
