1. DISCUSSION QUESTIONS

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

1. Even though Jesus was tired, did he want to help the people? (Yes! Jesus
is GREAT like that!)
2. When it was time for the people to eat dinner, what did Jesus use to feed
the HUGE crowd? (The little boy’s fish & bread!)
3. Did Jesus do some GREAT things in this story? (Yes! Jesus healed sick people & He fed them ALL with just a little bit of food!)

SAY: We can do good things, but the Bible just told us that Jesus does GREAT things!
We’ve made a discovery! The Bible Says Jesus Does Great Things! Do this
