Work a magnet maze
Print one “Magnet Maze” on heavyweight paper for every two children. Cut apart the mazes and the man cutouts. Give each child a maze, man cutout, paper clip, and block. Help a child tape a paperclip to the back of his man cutout and a disc magnet to the end of his block. Show him how to lay the man cutout at the beginning of the maze where Peter and John met the man sitting by the gate. Show the child how to move the magnet beneath the maze to move the man cutout. Guide the man along the maze toward the temple where he went to worship God after he was healed.
The man was so excited to be healed! He walked and leaped all the way to the temple where he praised God. The religious leaders heard what happened. They wanted to know how Peter and John healed the man. Peter said that the power of Jesus healed him. People who follow Jesus are called Christians and have that same power in them. It’s the power of the Holy Spirit! How does the Holy Spirit help Christians? The Holy Spirit comforts us, shows us our sin, and guides us as we live for God’s glory.
