31 & 32 - Trouble at home & Dreams!


A colourful coat

15 minute Craft planner

Beware of allergies - make sure it is safe for the children in your group to handle and taste the food used in this activity

You will need:
Paper plates
Sliced bread
Dairy spread (or a diary-free option)
Dinner knives
Mutli-coloured sprinkles
Small gingerbread man/woman cutters (gingerbread women cutters work well as they look like Old Testament characters wearing long tunics)

Alternatively you could use pre-made gingerbread people. Instead of diary spread you will need water icing - made from icing sugar and water mixed to a spreadable consistency (add the water slowly to avoid making the icing too runny). 

How to prepare:
Before the session clean the surfaces in your teaching area. Make one or two sample people with ‘colourful coats’ so the children know what they are making. 

How to make:
1. Encourage the children to wash their hands.

2. Give each child a paper plate and a slice of bread. 

3. Show the children how to carefully cut one or two people out of their bread. 

4. Using a dinner knife carefully cover the cut-out people with spread. 

5. Encourage the children to liberally scatter sprinkles over the clothes-part of their person.

6. Finally, help the children to use raisins to make two tiny eyes and a mouth for their person.

Alongside this craft, teach the Bible story...
