  • Resealable baggies
  • Paper plates

Read aloud Mark 14:32-50. As you narrate the biblical account, have kids or volunteers pass out the coordinating snacks. Give each child a paper plate to re-enact the events.

  • Crumbled graham crackers in resealable baggies and chocolate-covered raisins represent the ground and rocks where Jesus knelt. Pour the “sand” onto the paper plate and scatter “rocks.”
  • Gummy worms represent the disciples’ temptation to fall asleep.
  • Marshmallows represent the soft places where the disciples rested their heads and slept.
  • Use pretzel sticks to represent the swords and clubs the men carried who came to arrest Jesus.
