I Can See (Jesus heals a blind man)

Now for all the available play things for this session
Soil (Like mud that Jesus used to put on the blind man's eyes- emphasise importance of NOT putting our eyes)
Magnifying glasses added so that we could look carefully for what was hidden in the soil...

Craft Gems
And plastic bugs.
Mr Face Wall hanging, to make faces and especially focus on eyes. (I think this is a MUST have resource in any church group it fits into soooo many themes/stories, particularly good for discussing emotional responses)
Tactile matching activity, played by Looking for the correct pieces to match or feeling as a blind person may.
Then there were several toys that had visual appeal, including this beautiful kaleidoscope mirror (again another must have)
A wonderful tube kaleidoscope similar to this

A regular kaleidoscope

These images distorters

Kids torches
Light up spinning tops
Colour panels to put over face and see the world in rainbow colours.
A light box, (this didn't go down so well this week the room was far too light from sun flooding in) with these resources....
Colour padals

Colour sensory blocks (again an absolute favourite)

You may have noticed that most of todays photos were from Google Images, I just didn't get around to photographing my resources

  1. This is a good idea for an extension. I would never have thought of that.
