While your having fun with the activities, here are some discussion questions to talk to your kids about today:

  1. When John was on the island, who visited him with a special message?(An angel & Jesus)

  2. Did Jesus show John any sad people in heaven? (No! Jesus said there would be no sadness or crying or pain in heaven!)
