Calming the Sea Snacks

What you will need: apples, bananas, toothpicks, and fruit leather.

Cut the fruit into boat shapes.

Stick in the toothpick and fruit leather to make a sail. 

Now you have your own boats, just like the ones that rode into the storm. But then Jesus told the storm to stop, and it did!

Walking on Water

What you need: 1 cup of water, 1.5 cups of corn starch, a small tray, small toys.

Combine the water and cornstarch. Stir it together, this is difficult.

Pour the mixture into your tray.

When the little people “run” or “hop” across the mixture quickly, they seem to be walking.

Talk about the time that Jesus walked on water!

Fish and Loaves Story Snack

What you need: Cheese, a plate, crackers.

Take your cheese and cut out two circles and two triangles.

Form your two fish.

Add the five crackers and you have your own snack to replicate the lunch in the story!

While you enjoy your snack, let your child tell the story to you! Imagine what 
it would be like to share your lunch with a crowd.
