Objective: Kids will learn that miracles are possible with
Stuff you'll need: Buttermilk, 1-inch-wide sponge
brushes, pastel construction paper, and colored chalk.
Get ready: Cover the table with a vinyl cloth or
have a sponge handy to wipe off the table when you're done with the
Text: Read aloud John 2:1-11.
Tell kids to:
*Dip your sponge brush into the buttermilk. Smear the buttermilk
onto the construction paper and cover the entire page.
*Draw a picture with the colored chalk directly onto the wet
buttermilk surface. The buttermilk will keep your chalk drawing
from smearing or smudging.
Talk teasers: *Ask: Did you think you
would be able to draw on the wet buttermilk? Why or why not? Did
the people at the wedding believe that Jesus could turn water into
wine? Why or why not? What is a miracle? Tell about a miracle that
has happened to you or someone you know.
*Say: Take your picture home as a reminder of something
that seemed impossible but really was possible. God can work
miracles in your life even when it seems impossible. What are some
miracles we need to ask God to do in our lives?
Close in prayer for the areas children mention, and ask God to
work a miracle in those areas.
