Tell kids to:

  • “Paint” a simple butterfly shape on a sheet of waxed paper with
    the glue. Be sure that each butterfly body is filled in with glue.
    I’ll help you make the outline of the wing sections at least 1/2
    inch thick.
  • Shake assorted colors of glitter over the glue, making sure
    that the glue is completely covered. Gently lift the waxed paper
    and shake the excess glitter back into the glitter container or a
    box lid for future use.
  • Set the waxed paper aside for several days to let the glue and
    glitter dry. When it’s completely dry, carefully peel the butterfly
    shapes from the paper.
  • I’ll help you thread a length of nylon filament thread through
    each butterfly. Hang the butterflies from the ceiling where they
    can blow in the breeze!

Talk teasers: Read aloud 2 Corinthians 5:17.

*Ask: What makes a caterpillar become a butterfly? How
is the butterfly a new creation? What makes us become new creations
in Christ? What is one thing about you that shows that you are a
new creation in Christ?

Close in prayer, thanking God for the new life that’s available
through Jesus’ death and resurrection.
