Sunday Schoolhouse Series Activity - Unit A4
Lesson 5: Demetrius Stirs Up Trouble (Acts 19:23-41)
As part of this lesson the children will make clay sculptures:
For this project you will need enough modeling clay for each child to get a large enough clump to sculpt with; as well as beads, plastic jewels or other decorations. The children can mold a hill and form a cross standing at the top. Press beads and jewels into the cross for decoration. Very small children may want to use popsicle sticks and glue if they are unable to make a cross stand up out of clay. Give older children more items to decorate with. Encourage detail like wood grain on the cross or grass on the hill. Explain that our faith should be out in the open - "up on a hill" like the cross they made. They, like Paul and his friends, may feel rejection, but can pray for courage in standing up and speaking in Jesus' name.
