STORY TIME!

This weeks bible story drama is brought to you from the the Vaughan family

Our bible reading is Matthew 13:1-9,18-23

CRAFT TIME!

Make a story catcher

You will need: a square of plain paper (about 20cm square)

  • Fold your square into quarters then unfold. Now fold each corner in towards the middle. Turn the paper over so that the folded edges are face down, and now fold each corner in towards the middle again.

  • Write numbers 1 to 8 on each of the folded triangles, then lift the flaps and write the story in eight parts underneath each triangle shape.

  • Flip it over and decorate the folded squares with colours. Place index fingers and thumbs into the squares on each side to fold the story catcher in with the coloured squares on top (see below).

  • Invite everyone to play with one another and use their story catchers (using the structure below).                                                                                                                                                                                                                              You could use the following eight sentences to make the story in your story catcher:

  • Jesus liked telling stories.

  • Lots of people came to listen to Jesus.

  • Sometimes the crowds were huge!

  • Once Jesus told a story about a sower.

  • The sower sowed seed on different types of ground.

  • Jesus hid messages in his stories.

  • The parable of the sower is about how we respond to God.

  • Parables help us to learn more about God.                                                                                                                                                                                      How to play

  • Choose a colour. Spell out the colour as you move the story catcher
    e.g. yellow = 6 moves.

  • Choose a number from one of the triangles and move the story catcher that many times.

  • Choose a number from another triangle and open up for that part of the story. Repeat

GAME TIME!

I’m going to tell you a story…

  • Take it in turns to tell part of a story – saying one sentence each. The sentences don’t have to be complicated, but it helps the story if they follow on from the last sentence.

  • Start the story with a sentence that should be easy to continue, for example, ‘One day, Jesus went to the seaside with his friends.’

  • Finish the story when everyone has had a turn, or you come to a natural conclusion.

LET'S TALK

with your child/children...

Farmers used to sow their seeds by ‘broadcasting’ (throwing the seed as they went). Do you think the seed would land where the farmer wanted it to?

What makes a good listener to a story?

In the story, what helped the seeds to grow? What helps us to grow as followers of Jesus?

LET'S TALK

with your young person/people

What does this passage say about wisdom?

Can you relate to any of what happens to the seeds? (The young people don’t have to answer this out loud.)

What do you think of parables as a way of teaching others?

REFLECTIVE ACTIVITY

Snapshot

Come up with a snapchat or a tweet (max. 280 characters) – a picture with a caption – that would get across the message of the parable of the sower. Discuss how today we only have quick snippets of things to share information with people:

Do people think we spend less time reading/watching stories now?
How easy is it to share information quickly?
Do we get across everything that we need to?
