Romans 5:12 is a heavy passage for kids, in my opinion. It says, “Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned.”
Adam and Eve ate the fruit and so now we know the difference between good and evil and we must die. This craft has you pull man and sin through the world, but I had to add in the hope of Jesus too. After all, He is our hope and He came to earth to die so that our sins would be forgiven. That is part of this verse too.
- One paper per child Romans 5 12
- Crayons, scissors
- Tablecloth to keep your work area clean
To put this together, cut along the top dotted line and color in the earth. Cut on the two dotted lines on the earth. The easiest way to do this is to gently fold the paper and cut. Or you can do this ahead of time and use a utility knife to make the slits.
Slip the paper through and then as you read the verse, pull the paper through. When you get through the verse, be sure to add in the good news of Jesus is coming!
