Jesus Heals a Lame Man at the Pool

by Kimber Bailey Scott
for 2-5 year olds

Sit on the floor and have a first aid kit. Open it and pull out bandages and band-aids. Put them on the kid(s). Do you ever get hurt? Where? Who helps you when you get hurt? What does _(mom?)__ do to make you feel better?

John 5:1-9. Have a clear bowl of water. Add a few drops of blue food coloring. Act out the story with a couple of their little action figures or as Canaan calls them "lil' mans."

Place a blue round plastic tablecloth on the floor as a pool. Everyone grabs an edge of the cloth and ripples it. Say/yell one of your kids names, they jump in the middle and everyone says SPLASH! Keep going until everyone has had a turn.
Go to the bathtub and fill it half way with water. Have them put their hands in the tub to feel the water. Now take their hands out. Say one of your kids names, he/she puts their hands in the tub and splashes around as everyone else says, "SPLASH!" Repeat until each kid has had a turn. 

No legs race - Have them line up and race across the room except they can't use their legs.

Lame man at the pool - Plastic container of blue jello for each kid. (optional - Sprinkle colored blue sugar on top as "salt.") Give them mini marshmallows and small pretzel sticks to make a lame man at the pool.
