Toss Your Nets to the Other Side {Teaching tools for kids}

So we’re still learning about tossing our nets to the other side. Here’s a craft that goes with the bible story.

This craft is mostly pre-cut-out fun
foam stickers on foam board. The little “net” (which is a piece of
tulle used to wrap wedding favors) sticks on with velcro and is
removable. The little fishermen are also removable and just stick into
the slit in the boat. You gotta love interactive crafts! 😉

Also, here’s a great song that you can use to teach your children about the toss your nets to the other side bible story!

Toss Your Nets to the Other Side Song for Kids

(To the tune of 10 Little Indians)

Peter James and John in a sailboat,

Peter James and John in a sailboat,

Peter James and John in a sailboat,

Couldn’t catch any fish!

Jesus appeared on the beach,

Jesus appeared on the beach,

Jesus appeared on the beach,

and told the apostles this:

“Cast your nets to the other side”

“Cast your nets to the other side”

“Cast your nets to the other side”

so the apostles did.

Now their nets were full of fish,

Now their nets were full of fish,

Now their nets were full of fish,

and they recognized the Lord!

This would be a great song for at home, for a CCD class, or a Sunday school class to teach this bible story to kids. My kids love it!

Remember the toss-your-nets snack that we made earlier this week with goldfish crackers? {You can find the directions here}

    I did toss your nets on the other side with my. Cry chapel children . They had such fun. We did it on a paper plate. My little grandson of 2 had to place the fish on the net as he wanted to catch them.
