Leper is Healed
I found the pattern for this really cute guy on www.makingfriends.com. I made the leper using that pattern. I chose to copy it onto cardstock so it will hold up better. The children will often want to color this guy.
Then I cut a piece of transparency (sometimes leftover lamination works too) the same size as my page. I taped the transparency to the top of the page. Then fold the tape so that the transparency lay on top of the leper. With a permanent marker, I let the kids put red dots for leprosy on this arms, legs, and face.
When it comes time for the leper to be healed, just lift up the transparency and he is healed.
Another alternative is to us a dry erase marker on the transparency and let the children just wipe off the leprosy.
I have used this leper with the story of Naaman being Healed (II Kings 5: 1-19) as well as with the story of the Healing of the Ten Lepers (Luke 17:11-19).
