You know what really keeps kids attention? Lame object lessons!!!!
That was sarcasm…
In my curriculum series called “That’s Amazing!” we talk about 5 of the miracles Jesus performed while He was here on earth. In each one of the 5 lessons I include a different object lesson to help drive home the theme of the curriculum series. (because object lessons are awesome!)
The theme of this particular curriculum series is that “God is able to do more than I can even imagine”.
So to demonstrate that idea, the following, anti-lame, object lesson is provided in the teaching materials. For context, the story referenced below is the feeding of the 5,000.
Objects Needed: Paper, scissors
Today we are going to talk about Jesus doing something…that seemed (even to His disciples) like the impossible.
So let’s have a little fun of our own with something seems (at least at first) like it is impossible.
What if I told you that I can walk through this piece of paper? (hold up a solid piece of paper)
Would any of you like to try first? (let one or two volunteers attempt to create a hole they can step through. They will either fail or have such a hard time doing it, that your audience will assume their is probably an easier way.)
Well, let me show you how it really is possible to step completely through this ordinary piece of paper.
(cut the paper per the directions in the video above, and then easily step through it)
What seemed impossible to us, is now pretty simple, right?
Jesus’ power is a lot greater than a simple trick like this. Jesus can literally do anything He wants…including feeding people lunch without ever having to go to McDonald’s for chicken nuggets!Share this post:
