Paper Cutting and Folding is a very effective way of presenting stories and
lessons to children. Combined with good story telling, your
illustration unfolds very graphically, keeping your class in suspense as
they try to work out what it is all about. Like all object lessons,
the children will remember what you showed them and this will remind them
of the lesson and it's application.
Even if you are all thumbs, you can copy the lessons and practice cutting and
folding the figures until you are comfortable with them. When you
present a paper cutting, hold the paper with the blank side facing your
audience. Then cut along the lines facing you as the story proceeds.
Our aim is to give you a tool that will bring great interest and enthusiasm to
your class, Sunday School or children's ministry. This section
contains paper cutting lessons for primary school children from grades 1 to
7. A life application is included with each story to encourage and
challenge your children to add good Christian values to their daily lives.
An Outreach Tool:
Older children will love cutting and folding patterns themselves. While
they work, you can review the lesson with them and ask how the things they
learned will help them live better lives for God. Afterwards encourage
the children to show it to their parents and friends while they tell the
story or lesson that you gave them.
