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.

  • I would love to use this thermometer for my Sunday school class on Sunday! I went to your TPT Store and wasn’t able to locate this resource. I believe, according to your terms, I would need to purchase it to share it with the littles in my Sunday school class. Would you happen to have a direct link to the Jesus Heals Peter’s Mother in Law Thermometer? Please let me know. I love this resource!

  • I would love to use this tomorrow with our Bible story of Jesus healing Peter’s mother in law, however, it will not let me print when I click on the Print icon. It keeps saying the page is not directing properly. Any ideas?

  • Thank you so much Beth for sharing your talents and offering this thermometer craft for free. I’m sure our 3-5 yr old Sunday School class will better understand the story of Jesus Healing Peter’s Mother-in-law.
