The feeding of the multitude (really 5,000 plus, since women and children weren’t even in the head count) is a fun story to teach as well as a great one for craft possibilities. We celebrate God’s provision and power, as He takes care of us and uses our meager offerings to do great things. With these crafts, explore how we can take simple everyday items like plates and bags, and turn them into a new creative reminder of God’s ability to transform us! Here are some ideas to re-create the story.

Bible Verses or Captions to Consider…
Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. -John 6:35
They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over. 21 The number of those who ate was about five thousand men, besides women and children.

-Matthew 14:20-21
God takes the little bit you’ve got…and uses it to make a lot!
From just a little lunch, God made a whole bunch!
Give God what you have, and see what He can do!
God provides all we need and then some!
