Miracles of Jesus Pop-up Book
There is another Miracles of Jesus Pop-up book on this site. It is more accurately called That You May Believe. I made this one first for a Bible class. The other one was made for a VBS a couple of years later. They are slightly different because the VBS focused on the miracles found in the book of John but this book just has various miracles that Jesus did.
Before class have the page constructed (flaps in place, pieces cut out, etc) and let the child add the finishing touches. You don’t want to spend a lot of class time doing a task that is really too difficult for the child.
Open the side flaps to reveal the last part of the story.
Student adds four baskets to the picture to finish out the 12 baskets that were left over after Jesus fed the 5000.
Jesus Heals A Lame Man pdf
You will need 2 small squares of fabric for this one. I found some that resembled a woven blanket that might would have been used at the time. Help the child glue the fabric to the flap and then the lame man on top.
Lift the flap and glue the healed man carrying his mat. It might be a good idea to glue the first one, then let it dry a little before gluing the other. Otherwise, it can get messy.
Jesus Calms The Storm pdf
The child places the sleeping “Jesus” in the boat and can then rock the boat in the waves.
Jesus wakes up (flip the figure around — it is two sided) and stands in the boat.
The sea calms on demand.
Jesus Heals The Blind Man pdf
This activity does not have anything for the child to add. It should be fully assembled before class. When the slide is pushed in all the way, the blind man appears to have mud on his eyes. Laminating the slide will make it easier to move in and out.
When the slide is pulled out, the mud is gone and the blind man can see.
Jesus Heals The 10 Lepers pdf
This is a flap page depicting the sick lepers before Jesus heals them.
Lift the flap and see the 9 lepers walking away. The child will glue in place the one leper that returned to thank Jesus.
Jesus Walks On The Water pdf
Another classic that I remember doing as a child. The child can help Jesus walk on the water by moving the tab below. Laminating the Jesus figure will help making it easier to move back and forth.
It will also make it easier if you cut out the figure and then laminate cutting the laminate with a smooth border around the figure. I hope that makes sense.
Jesus Raises Lazarus From The Dead pdf
Jesus stands before Lazarus’ tomb commanding him to come out.
Lift the flap and add Lazarus — alive and walking out of the tomb.
This song was written to be sung while doing this study. You can hear it here: What Is A Miracle?
