Looking for a new way to tell the story of Adam and Eve? Well why not tell the story using paper dolls. The best part about these dolls is that the children can make them as a craft and then use them to retell the story to their friends and family.
Adam And Eve Created
Adam And Eve When They Fell
Adam And Eve When God Clothed Them

Lots wife not only was warned of the coming destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, but was provided with a way of escape for herself and her family. She was given very simple instructions, do not turn around and look at the city. Instead of fleeing for her life she turned around because her heart was set on the sinful city and as a consequence of her disobedience she turned into a pillar of salt.
Instead of setting our minds and hearts on the things of this world we should set them on God.
“18 For many walk, of whom I often told you, and now tell you even weeping, that they are enemies of the cross of Christ, 19 whose end is destruction, whose god is their appetite, and whose glory is in their shame, who set their minds on earthly things. 20 For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.” Philippians 3:18-20
“Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth.” Colossians 3:2

A cute craft to help the kiddos remember the story of Jesus healing a paralytic man. This craft can be assembled quickly if everything is printed onto colored paper or construction paper.

- Cut the first page in half. Then take an xacto knife and cut along the parallel lines. This part should be done by an adult.

- Weave the strips into the rectangular base. Rotate going over and under with every new strip to create a weaving pattern.

- Finally glue on the feet to the mat by arranging the feet on the mat and then gluing them in place.
I have also included the words “Jesus Heals” in case you would like to add it to the mat.
This craft makes use of colors to help children understand the gospel message. The color association makes it easy for children to remember each part of the gospel.

- Glue each square in its place, one at a time.

Jonah knew what God had commanded him to do, but he chose to disobey. Then came the discipline of the Lord. God disciplines those He loves and this is an important lesson for all children to learn. It’s not always fun, but its one way that God demonstrates His love.
“My son, do not reject the discipline of the Lord Or loathe His reproof. For whom the Lord loves He reproves, Even as a father corrects the son in whom he delights.” Proverbs 3:11-12
