The story of the woman at the well is a great reminder to us that Jesus loves us all. Even the sinner. He wants us all to drink the water of life…faith in Him. This craft is easy and even though it uses paint (which I usually shy away from but you can read about my tears here) it was really well contained. Only use a drop! A little goes a long way!
Using John 4:13-14, it says, ‘Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life’.”
Isn’t that fantastic news you want to share with your kiddos today?
- One verse per child John 4 13-14
- One Styrofoam cup
- a short piece of yarn/twine
- blue paint and brush
- brown crayon
I just put a small drop of blue paint in the bottom of the cup and the kids swirled it around with a brush. We did this before the lesson to give it time to dry and then we finished them up after the lesson. You can just use a pen or pencil tip to poke a hole in the cup to tie the string on. Color the cup and glue/tape the verse on. Then they have their bucket of water to remind them of God’s gift of eternal life.
