Bubbles are a great craft to help kids learn about keeping their eyes on Jesus.
Age Level: 4 to 8
Bible Connect: Hebrews 12:2
Materials: Liquid tempera paint, bubble solution, shallow baking pan, drinking straws, and white construction paper
What to Do: Mix liquid tempera paint and bubble solution to desired color, then pour the colored solution into the bottom of a shallow baking pan. Have kids use straws to blow into the bubble solution and create large, colored bubbles. Then have kids quickly place a piece of construction paper over the top of the bubbles to create a bubble picture.
Dry-Off Debrief: Say: Divers can get confused when they’re in deep water because it can be difficult to tell which way is up toward the surface. The bubbles from their oxygen tank may seem to be going sideways, but the bubbles can give the right direction. Bubbles generally rise to the surface.
Read aloud the Scripture.
Ask: What things can distract you from keeping your eyes on Jesus? How can we know what Jesus wants us to do? Why is it important to keep our eyes on Jesus?
