The New Testament is full of stories about Jesus helping others. During His ministry on earth He went around healing people, providing for others, and raising people from the dead! Even though we cannot do many of these things we are still able to help others in our own way.
Bible Class Creations has come up with this fun idea to remind children that their hands can be used to help others just like Jesus did. This could be a great concept for kids to learn in a Sunday school class.
All you need are paper, paint, and a sharpie. Have each child dip one hand in a bowl of paint and then stick their hand on the paper. Let the paint dry. Next write “Jesus Hands Helped Others, So Can Mine” around the paper. Kids can hang up this craft in their rooms as a reminder to serve others!
Thanks Bible Class Creations for this great idea!
