Day 4: Jesus’ Last Days Skit {31 Days Series}

Day 4: Jesus’ Last Days Skit {31 Days Series}

Last year, as we made our way through the Sticker through the Bible curriculum, I struggled with what to do with the traditional “Easter” lesson.   I wanted to keep it engaging for our regularly churched kids, but also easy to understand for any new guests we might have that day.  I decided to go with a skit and handed each child a card with a name on it as they came in the door.

Acting out Jesus' last days (skit character assignments)

 

We took down the tables for the day, and put the chairs around the perimeter of the room.  The actors stood in the middle of the room to “perform” as I read through the script and then took their seats again when they were finished.  For the tomb, I stood two tables on their ends in a corner and had kids enter and exit this make shift tomb when appropriate.   Be wise when choosing an actor for Jesus, because you want someone who is going to take it seriously and do a good job.   We started with Jesus going into the garden to pray, went through his trial, crucifixion, and then resurrection.

As for the script, I think I wrote my own based on various passages in the gospel, but of course, I can no longer find it!   I’ll keep searching, but in the meantime, you might want to try these resources as well (I have not personally used any of these, but thought it might give you a place to start):

Stay tuned tomorrow for Activities and Crafts for David and Goliath (1 Samuel 17).  To check out all the posts in this series, head on over to the Table of Contents!
