Children’s Activities

Activities:

Please read the Sunday bible passage John 20. v19-31 about ‘doubting Thomas’ wanting to see the risen Jesus for himself before he dared to believe that he really had risen from the dead. Chat: what makes you believe something is true? Do you need to see it happen yourself or would you believe it if other people told you about it?

  • Click on the link to print out a Jesus jigsaw. Colour it in and stick it to some card. Cut out the jigsaw pieces and make the jigsaw. Or just do a jigsaw puzzle at home and talk about what it was like for the disciples gradually trying to piece together what had happened after Jesus death so they could gradually see the full picture of Jesus resurrection.
  • For something messier, fold an A4 piece of paper in half. Paint your hand in one colour and paint a circle in the middle of your palm in a different colour to look like a nail mark. Lay your palm down on one half of the paper. Wash your hands and while the paint is still wet, fold the paper in half so you end up with a mirror image of your hand print. Remember Thomas touching Jesus’s hands and saying ‘My Lord and my God’.
