Sunday Schoolhouse Series Activity - Unit A4
Lesson 7: John's Vision of New Jerusalem (Revelation 21:1 - 14)
As part of this lesson the children will make the Well of the Water of Life:
For this craft each child will need a good amount of mini marshmallows, glue, blue decorating sugar, markers, a piece of construction paper, and plastic glue on jewels. Each child will get a piece of construction paper to use as the base to build their well on. Glue the mini marshmallows into about a 5-6" circle. Then staggering the marshmallows stack a second and third row making the sides of the well. Carefully spread some glue inside the walls of the well on the paper. Sprinkle blue decorating sugar on the wet glue to look like water in the well. Older children can write the Lord's word below the well, "To those who are thirsty I will give you the privilege of drinking from the well of the Water of Life without payment." You can print off this verse for younger children to glue onto the paper. Use the plastic jewels to glue around the paper for further decoration. Older children can go further trying to create the Greek symbols for Alpha and Omega (see page 31 of the Classroom Resource book) on their sheets using jewels.
