Crucifixion Object Lesson: Jesus Takes Away ALL Our Sins

crucifixion object lesson

Need a crucifixion object lesson for children? This visual object lesson about sin and forgiveness will be stuck in kids’ heads for all time. One day it just may click not to take Jesus on the cross for granted.

Disappearing Sin Object Lesson! Was Jesus really the final sacrifice for our sins? Did he really take on all of our sin at the cross? These are big questions and often difficult concepts for children to wrap their minds around.

Help kids make sense of this with a simple crucifixion object lesson. It’s especially perfect for visual learners (more than half the population). Review my article about visual learners and teaching these children most effectively. To sum it up, most children are visual learners, meaning they learn by seeing. This may be through pictures, video, puppets, objects, or object lessons.

Get creative with your class and they’ll not only love you for it. They’ll also remember more of what you teach than ever before. One of my favorite crucifixion object lessons is about Jesus taking on our sins.
