We heard about the apostle Peter’s miraculous escape from prison, and made paper chains to take away and a long one to tie him up with in story time. Obviously this would also be a good craft activity for Christmas.

You will need:

  • Scrap paper of several colours, cut into strips
  • Glue

The children should glue the strips of paper to make loops, threading each one through an existing loop before glueing so that they make a chain.

Of course, you don’t have to use scrap paper, but the children were quite happy with it! ¬†At Christmas you might prefer to use red, green and white or silver crepe paper for festive decorations.

Bible story: Peter is set free from prison by an angel (Acts 12: 5-17)
