We are still working our way through The Jesus Storybook Bible (affiliate link) in my preschool Sunday school class. One of the stories from the old testament is about Naaman.
If you’re not familiar with the story of Naaman I will give you a brief synopsis.
Naaman was an army commander who had leprosy. His wife’s Israelite servant girl said that Naaman should go see Elisha to be healed.
Elisha told Naaman to wash seven times in the Jordan river to be healed, but Naaman didn’t like this idea and was very angry.
However, his servants convinced him to give it a try and lo and behold Naaman was healed and decided to worship God and not any other gods.
Here is the craft I came up with to help the children remember the story of Naaman.
When the kids pull on the tab at the bottom of Naaman he will go into the “river”.
To make this craft I gave each child a half sheet of white construction paper. I also pre-cut a blue “river” and a brown “river bank”.
The children glued the brown and blue pieces to the white piece of paper and then I cut a slit in the paper just above the blue paper in the center.
I drew Naaman on a piece of paper and made the bottom be a rectangle so that the kids could pull him in and out of the river.
There are spots all over him that I drew before the kids colored Naaman that represent the leprosy.
