You can create a magical moment by bringing a stick figure to life.
This is ideal for when you do a talk about:
As a visual demonstration of the resurrection of Jesus and being alive in Christ!
"But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ." (Ephesians 2:5)
Watch the two video's below to discover how you use this great object lesson!
Fun crafts idea
Of course you can also use it as a fun crafts idea, as shown in the video below!
How does it work?
As you can see in the videa all you need is a whiteboard marker and a flat, shiny surface. Use a whiteboard marker to draw a stick figure on a flat, shiny surface and drop a little water on it. Then you'll see the drawing slowly lift off the surface and become one with the watery bubble.
This is because the ink in a whiteboard marker, unlike a permanent marker, includes an oily silicone substance. Because oil sits on top of water so does this ink, which will also move as the puddle moves. By gently blowing on the puddle the stick figure will swish and dance around according to which way you blow on it.
The final product may look like an intricate optical illusion, but the stick figure comes to life thanks to only a whiteboard marker, some water and a shiny surface.
The resurrection of Christ, being made alive in Christ

As someone who is involved in children's ministry you're always looking for creative ideas and input, and perhaps also a place where you can ask for a specific idea to go with a certain Bible story or theme.
To help you in this we have set up the Facebook group 'Creative Kids Ministry'. It is a vibrant online community of children's workers and ministers who can share ideas together.
To facilitate this we will offer you lots of totally free creative ideas for your kids ministry, Sunday school and children’s work. Every week you’ll find here at least three excellent creative Biblical ideas such as object lessons, cool science experiments, gospel magic ideas, YouTube video’s, etc.
And of course you are more than welcome to post your own ideas!
