You will need: Dried spaghetti, mini marshmallows and a plastic Easter Egg
Challenge the children to build a 'tree' with the spaghetti and marshmallows, that will support and hold a plastic Easter egg (real eggs are way too heavy for what they are likely to build!)
How easy was it to build the tree?
What difficulties did you encounter?
What difficulties do you think Zacchaeus encountered in the story?
What lengths would you go to to see one of your heroes?
What lengths do others go to in order to be Christians?- think about the persecuted church
When do you sometimes have to be determined?
Do you ever have to use your determination in order to live as a Christian and to get to know Jesus better?
Pray that weather people will have the determination to get to know Jesus better, even when it's hard. Draw or write prayers on a slip of paper and put them inside the plastic egg. Put the egg back on top of the 'tree' and give your prayers to God
