We find that a bible-bop is a great way of moving from the games into the worship. Children prefer this to singing and this will draw them to the worship area. We suggest using it again after tea to draw people back to the worship area.

Arrow Craft

Each month we suggest a couple of crafts. One is a corporate activity to produce something to put up on the wall or in the church to show that children are present, active and part of the church. The other is individual for them to make something and take it home.


 Craft For the corporate craft we suggest making a large sheet of the front of the tomb without the tomb stone on the front. Draw the tombstone on a piece of card and place it so that it is hinged and can be opened. Above the tomb write "I am the resurrection and life". Get the children to draw their faces on a relatively small pieces of paper and then stick them behind the  tombstone. There is a sample background available - Download.

For the cooking craft we suggest using icing sugar to decorate creme eggs (or real eggs). Explain that eggs are a symbol of new life.

Finally we suggest making friendship bracelets. This is done by plaiting three strands of different coloured wool. Alternatively if you children are into loom bands then these could also be used. Point out that Lazarus did have a lot of friends who had come to support Mary and Martha, but then witnessed him being raised. You might want to swap the friendship bands at the end of the session.. There are a number of patterns at Friendship Bracelets.net


Arrow Tea

We have found that sandwiches, crisps, sausage rolls, pizza, jelly and ice cream make a really good Sunday tea. The Notes suggest a number of "I wonder questions" to start conversations about the video and the story.

Arrow Response

There's no one like the Lord We suggest calling everyone back to the worship space by repeating the bible-bop - Download - Sample
