Craft: Doubting Thomas/Bible Passage Craft 
A fun craft that really puts together the story and what you will be teaching the kids this week. It would make a good wrap up craft.

Activity: Seeing and Believing 
This would be better for younger kids. It might be good to have a blanket or something to put in front of the chosen child to make it better.

Activity: Object Lesson 
Put a small object in a paper bag. Ask one child to look in the paper bag and tell the class what he sees. Ask the class, “Do you believe him?” and let children respond. Secretly put a new item in the bag and ask five children to look inside and tell the class what they see. Ask, “Is it easier to believe five people rather than one when their answers are the same?” Most children will respond yes. Tell them that even though all 10 disciples told Thomas that Jesus arose, he still didn’t believe.
