Bible Story: Fishers of Men

Print Friendly

Make a “fishing pond” by placing a circle of blue fabric on the
floor. Lay small rocks around the pond. Cut out large construction
paper fish and attach a paper clip to each fish. Scatter the fish
around the pond.

Make “fishing poles” by tying one end of a 2-foot piece of string
to a small magnet and stapling the other end to a yardstick or
3-foot stick. Give each child a pole to reel in the paper

After all the fish are caught, give each child several small
construction paper squares. Help children glue the colorful pieces
to one of their fish to make a fish mosaic.

Then read and discuss any of the following stories: Jesus calls his
disciples to be fishers of men (Matthew 4:18-22); Peter’s great catch of fish
(Luke 5:1-11); or Jesus cooks breakfast for the
disciples (John 21:1-14).
