Here are some Sunday school worksheets ideas to use when teaching the Sunday school lesson of Jesus healing the lepers. My 6-8 year olds enjoy doing the art projects and having freedom to put their own thoughts on the worksheets. Encouraging them to sing while they are doing the projects keeps the attention as well.
Explain what leprosy is to the children in a way that they will understand it.
Tell the story of Jesus healing the ten lepers from Luke 17: 11-19. You can tell this story using a children’s bible or just tell it in such a way that this age group can understand it.
Talk about being thankful. Have the children trace each other’s hands on construction paper. Then have each child write one thing they are thankful for on each construction paper finger, for a total of five different things. Then they can decorate their construction paper hands with stickers and/or crayons.
Give the children a piece of paper and crayons or markers. Have them make a thank you card for God thanking Him for at least one blessing and telling or drawing what that blessing means to them.
Sing “I’ve Got the Joy, Joy, Joy”
I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart, (where?)
down in my heart, (where?), down in my heart,
I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart, (where?) down in my heart to stay.
2nd time through: I’ve got the peace that passes understanding down in my heart
3rd time through: I’ve got the love of Jesus, love of Jesus, down in my heart
4th time through: I’ve got the wonderful love of my blessed redeemer way down in the depths of my heart.
