I really like this lesson because I feel like it brings Jesus to their level in showing them that He did the same things that they do each day.
For the Picture 2-10, I've blown them up and put them onto 2 legal size (8.5x14) papers (you'll need to glue them together), pass them around to the kids and ask them with a colored pencil to find:
- the woman rolling the mat
- the cradle where the baby sleeps
- the big jars
- the woman sitting on the floor
- the oil lamp
( add anything else that you would like to talk about) once everyone has had a chance, begin discussing each thing and how it is the same as today.)
Bring in some washable paint (homemade version -- add some dish soap to make it washable) and paint brushes (the Dollar Store has a bundle of them)
and print these onto heavy cardstock. Have the kids paint/draw what they think that Jesus may have looked like when he was their age.
