Zacchaeus Sunday School Craft
Trace the child's forearm and hand with their thumb stretched out onto cardstock. Then let them color their "tree" brown. Next let them dip their thumb or fingertip into either paint or an inkpad and press it onto the tree limbs (fingers) for leaves. I used an inkpad because the drying time was short and it also captured their fingerprints better. Just be sure to get the kid friendly ink!
As for Zacchaeus...I found him in a sitting position at http://www.daniellesplace.com/html/bible_themes_zacchaeus.html. I cut him out in advance as pre-schooler's scissor skills have not yet been perfected! Let them color him before you glue him onto the tree limb (thumb).
