This lesson emphasizes the main reason Jesus came to the earth . The verse is from Luke 19:10 but the parable of the lost sheep, the lost coin, and the lost son (the Prodigal son) was told to a group of publicans and sinners who had gathered near to hear Him (Luke 15), with a group of murmuring scribes and Pharisees in the background. You will need cotton balls to glue on your sheep ( 1/2 ball is plenty), metallic gel pens to color the coins, and a “jacob’s ladder” to glue under the father after he is colored and cut-out. For instructions on making “jacob’s ladder” check out the video on you-tube “how to make a jacob’s ladder” by rostichery. You could scale this project down to fit on a 1/2 sheet of paper. It would not be too difficult and would save paper. Don’t forget to have the kids write the verse.
