- Binoculars - Paint two toilet paper rolls. Staple together and add a string. Discuss with the child the importance to keep his/her eyes on Jesus.
- Make pipecleaner glasses - Twist one pipecleaner into the shape of an "8". Attach one pipecleaner on each side to make ear pieces on the glasses. Twist the ear pieces together in the back to hold them on the child's head. This is a silly craft but my kiddos loved this one and it really helped them remember the objective of the Bible Story.
- Jesus Walks on the Water Craft - Print the worksheets. Color the first picture of Jesus and the boat. Cut a slit along the dotted line. Color and cut out Peter on the second page. Glue the figure to a craft stick. Slide the stick into the slit and move Peter up and down in the water according to the story.
