Sunday Schoolhouse Series Activity - Unit A4
Lesson 4: A Slave-girl and Jailer are Set Free (Acts 16:16 - 34)
As part of this lesson the children will make chains and break free:
For this lesson you will need large size grey construction paper, tape or stapler, scissors and markers. Cut strips of constructions paper lengthwise approximately 2" wide. Each child should have at least three strips. Label the paper "sin", "evil" and "fear". Next, the kids can shackle their legs with the strips of paper. Two strips used to make loops on each ankle - tape or staple the paper together, and one strip to link the two shakles together. Now the children are chained in bondage to sin, evil and fear. Older children can be more specific on their paper, listing specific fears, sins and evil. See how easy it is to run around the room while in bondage. Revisit Paul's story in Acts. Explain how we are baptised in the name of the Father, the Son, and of the Holy Spirit and have the children rip a chain link and gain release with the reading of the trinity. The children could make a second set to bring home and demonstrate to their family.
