Try this lesson with your 2-5 year olds to teach the lesson from the story of Jesus walking on the water. You can engage them in a Sunday school craft to get your point and to keep the interest alive.
Sunday School Craft: “Jesus Walks On Water”
Tell the story of Jesus walking on the water (Matthew 14: 25-31). You can tell the story using a children’s bible or just tell it in basic language that this age group can understand.
Talk to the children about why Peter began to sink. Emphasize to them that if they keep their eyes on Jesus they will be safe, just as when Peter had his eyes on Jesus he was safe.
Have the children decorate toilet paper binoculars.
Need: two toilet paper tubes for each child, construction paper, crayons or markers, stickers, tape, and a stapler
Wrap the toilet paper tubes with construction paper and tape the paper to them, then staple two tubes together side by side. Give each child a pair of toilet paper tubes. Let them color the tubes and put stickers on them. Emphasize to the child that the binoculars they have made can remind them to keep their eyes on Jesus so that He can keep them safe.
To the tune of “Row, Row, Row Your Boat”
Row, row, row your boat,
Gently down the stream.
Jesus did not need a boat,
He walked upon the sea.
