Crafts idea - Zacchaeus: 'Build a marshmallow tree'


A tree of marshmallows?

Zacchaeus wants to see Jesus and climbs a tree. But what if there was no tree? Could we have built a tree for Zacchaeus with marshmallows?

This idea is part of a complete Sunday school lesson on the Bible story of Zacchaeus in Luke 19:1-10. 

This idea will help the children in your Sunday school lesson, youth ministry, Bible lesson, VBS, kidmin, children’s church or children’s ministry to reflect on this powerful Bible passage.
