We were doing the story of the man who was born blind and Jesus healed him (John 9). We wanted a craft that would be quick, but fun and relevant to the story. We found a site online that had a sheet of paper with pre-drawn circles that represented the different states of the blind man – Blind and Seeing. We borrowed that idea and made a sort of “before and after” craft.

How to Make the Blind Man Craft

  • Popsicle sticks
  • Pre-drawn “before and after” circles or blank circles
  • Scissors
  • Glue or glue sitcks
  • Markers or crayons

We had the students cut out their pre-drawn circles of the blind man. There was one with aviator sunglasses that illustrated the blind part and another with eyes that could see (you could draw your own or offer blank circles for the students to draw their own). They then glued the two circles together, back-to-back, with a popsicle stick in between them. The students then personalized each creation and marked their name on them.
