Today we read “A Little Servant Girl and the Proud General” beginning on page 136 of The Jesus Storybook Bible. We focused a lot on how Naaman thought he was very important and his heart was sick. He thought he was too important to get healed in a stinky river, but God healed his heart and his skin!
For our activity we had a “Naaman Gets Healed in the River” bath!
Naaman is Healed in the River
First you need to give yourself some skin disease! We took some red paint and mixed it with a couple generous squirts of soap. Then, we used a circle foam brush to paint on some big red dots. This was very silly and goofy and fun, but we made sure to make some “sad Naaman” faces too!
Next, start filling up the tub! We took some green and red food coloring to make our water icky like the river.
Here’s what our bath looked like with the food coloring added.
K thought that having a green bath was absolutely the most delightful thing ever.
Time to hop in!
Time to wash up Naaman!
All done! Sad and prideful Naaman has been healed! He is no longer sick on his skin or in his heart!
