Crafts idea - Follow Me: ‘A row of disciples’

A fun and easy to do craft to finish this Sunday school lesson on following Jesus!

Jesus calls Peter and the others to become fishers of men. From now on they will be making lots of disciples, all people who are also going to follow Jesus.

A row of disciples a fun craft on following Jesus

What do you need:

- strips of white paper
- pens and coloured pencils
- pairs of scissors

What to do:

Fold the paper into a concertina and draw the shape of the people on the uppermost fold with their arms going right up to the edge.

The children can cut out the shape, and if you fold it open you will have a whole row of people holding hands. It would be a good idea to make an example to show the children beforehand. They can then colour in all the people different
