Craft - NT: Life of Jesus: Jairus' daughter - Touching Jesus' garment
The children can make their own paper garments in this fun and easy-to-do craft
To help us remember the story of how the woman was healed by touching Jesus' garment, the children will be creating their own card T-shirts using finger paint and a T-shirt template. Each T-shirt will be a reminder of the healing power of Jesus and the faith we can have in Him.
This activity is part of a complete Sunday school lesson on the healing of Jairus' daughter and the woman who suffered from bleeding in Mark 5:21-43.
View the idea below...
Begin by introducing the story of the woman who suffered with bleeding to the children. You can read the relevant Bible passage (Mark 5:25-34) or use a children's Bible storybook to retell the story in an age-appropriate way.
Provide each child with a worksheet and a small amount of finger paint in a variety of colours. Encourage the children to use their fingers to create patterns and designs on the T-shirt template. They can mix colours, create handprints or fingerprints, or use other creative techniques to decorate the garment.
As the children are painting, you can ask them questions about the story and encourage them to think about what it must have been like for the woman to reach out and touch Jesus' garment. You can also talk about the healing power of Jesus and how we can trust Him to heal us when we are sick or hurting.
Once the children have finished painting, allow their artwork to dry. You can display the T-shirts in the classroom or send them home with the children as a reminder of the lesson.
