Jesus Calms the Storm – A Craft idea Children will Love
Memory Cross has a coloring card that teaches children about the story Jesus Calms the Storm. In the story the disciples and Jesus get into a boat and head across the lake. Jesus, who is exhausted falls asleep. While he is sleeping a storm comes up and the boat is getting close to sinking. In panic his disciples wake him up desperate for help. Jesus calms the wind and sea.
We chose this story because there are storms that we and our children face every day. Problems that are to big for us to handle, that overwhelm and cause us to panic, just like the disciples. Jesus may not always take away the problems but the story teaches us that he is always there and will help us get through any situation.
The Jesus Calms the Storm coloring card makes a great craft project. It will take 15-20 minutes to complete. Go over the card with your children and show them how it works. Then give them crayons and let them color the card in. You will find they will spend time flipping through the card over and over again and as they do they’ll learn this Bible story.
Here are what a few people have said:
- “I just wanted to let you know how great your products are. You sent me a sample pack which I took to my children’s ministry leader. I teach 2nd and 3rd graders at Ten Mile Christian Church in Meridian Idaho and I encouraged our ministry leader to look into your products for special events.” – Brenda
- “I placed an order with Memory Cross and received it the next day. Mike bent over backward to assist me in an expedious way with items needed urgently. I am very, very pleased with the memory crosses I ordered. And, he even sent a sample packet. Great customer service and great service. I will be ordering from this company soon.” – Norma
- “We are members of the Christian Motorcyclists Association (CMA) and work with children through our chapter’s Children’s Activity Center at secular biker rallies. These memory crosses are wonderful to give the kids because they will really read them as they make the folds. Some of these kids have never heard of Jesus and His love for them. So we send them on their way and a seed has been planted…” – Jane
