So we’re into 2013 and Destiny Kidz are looking at the theme of Upside Down. It’s all about how Jesus turned things upside down. Last week we looked at Zaccheus the tax-collector who after meeting Jesus decided to give away all his riches and pay everything back.
This is a fun and easy craft for the kids to remember the story. Added bonus: is there is hardly any preparation for leaders!
- White paper
- Template Zaccheus Tree Craft
- Green poster paint
- Paint palet or scrap paper
- Colouring pencils
- Kitchen roll or paper towels (for emergencies)
- Print off picture onto white paper
- Give out pictures to kids
- Squeeze a little bit of green paint onto the palette or scrap paper
- Let the kids dip their fingers in the paint
- Get the kids to press their fingers onto the paper to make the leaves on the tree.
- Once they’ve finished the kids can colour in the tree and Zaccheus with the colouring pencils.
- They could also write the verse on as well. We used ‘When Jesus came to the tree, he looked up and said, “Zacchaeus, come down! I must stay at your house today.” Luke 19:5
