Scratch Paper Bible Scenes MINISTRY TIP

Scratch Paper BibleBy Rev. Doug Forbes

It’s easy to teach Bible stories using scratch paper.  Not only will your students have a chance to be creative, they will have a lot of fun too!

For Scratch Paper Bible Scenes you need:  Bibles, Bible concordances, scratch paper from a craft store, toothpicks, plastic forks, plain white paper, pencils and objects that children can trace around such as jar covers.

Instruct your students to use their Bibles and concordances to choose a favorite Bible story they would like to draw.  Allow time for each child to share his or her findings with the class.

Ask your young people to creatively sketch a picture of the Bible story they have chosen with a pencil onto white paper, and assist each child as needed.  Next, instruct the children to recreate their Bible pictures onto scratch paper using toothpicks and plastic forks as their scratching tools.  Encourage them to use the shaped objects you have brought in to scratch around.  Their drawings should appear with brilliant colors shining through wherever they have been scratched.  Tell your young people to take their scratch papers home to their parents, guardians or grandparents and explain the Bible story to them.
