The Transfiguration of Jesus Scene


Make Jesus glow as you illustrate a scene from the Transfiguration of Jesus for kids.

You’ll need:

  • paper
  • tape
  • markers
  • scissors
  • 1/8 teaspoon of baking soda
  • three caps of hydrogen peroxide
  • one glow stick (cut off the end)
  • one 16-ounce bottle, containing 4 ounces of Mountain Dew
  • Invite three kids to draw a small picture of Jesus, Moses, and Elijah. Let other kids cut out the pictures.

Dim the lights. Read Matthew 17:1, then tape Jesus to the bottle.

Read Matthew 17:2, and add baking soda, peroxide, and glow stick liquid to the bottle.

Replace the lid, and let kids shake the bottle until it glows. Read Matthew 17:3.

Have kids tape Elijah and Moses next to Jesus. Then read Matthew 17:4-8, and remove Elijah and Moses.

Finally, read Matthew 17:9.

Ask: What was it like to see Jesus glowing? Explain what you think is amazing about Jesus. How does knowing Jesus is amazing impact your faith?
