As we continued on in Sunday School with stories of Jesus this week we talked about how Jesus healed Peters Mother in Law from Matthew 8:14-17 and Mark 1:29-31.
During our opening time kids drew pictures of things there were thankful for on a HUGE sheet of paper.
For their craft, we made a thermometer craft. (download includes thermometer with text and plan thermometers)
Thermometer Craft for KidsThis craft is simple to make, but so memorable for this story.
Simply print the template (below) on cardstock. There are 2 thermometer crafts per page.
Now tape a clear straw over the center of the thermometer and insert a red pipe cleaners in the straw. (we rounded the end to make it easier to move in and out).
Kids can now move the pipe cleaner in and out to change the temperature on the thermometer.
Jesus healed Peter’s mother-in-law from her fever and He can still heal people today. We encouraged the kids to thank God for healing us when we are sick and to show our gratitude by obeying Him.
