THEME SONG- “I am Free”
Let’s dig into our story “He Has Opened My Eyes”, found in the Gospel of John Chapter 9 v. 1-11:-
9 As Jesus was walking along, he saw a man who had been born blind. 2 His disciples asked him, “Teacher, whose sin caused him to be born blind? Was it his own or his parents' sin?”3 Jesus answered, “His blindness has nothing to do with his sins or his parents' sins. He is blind so that God's power might be seen at work in him. 4 As long as it is day, we must do the work of him who sent me; night is coming when no one can work. 5 While I am in the world, I am the light for the world.”6 After he said this, Jesus spat on the ground and made some mud with the spittle; he rubbed the mud on the man's eyes 7 and told him, “Go and wash your face in the Pool of Siloam.” (This name means “Sent.”) So the man went, washed his face, and came back seeing.8 His neighbours, then, and the people who had seen him begging before this, asked, “Isn't this the man who used to sit and beg?”9 Some said, “He is the one,” but others said, “No he isn't; he just looks like him. ”So the man himself said, “I am the man.”10 “How is it that you can now see?” they asked him.11 He answered, “The man called Jesus made some mud, rubbed it on my eyes, and told me to go to Siloam and wash my face. So I went, and as soon as I washed, I could see.”

Now it is time for a GAME
Week 3: He Has Opened My Eyes -Miracle Mud
- Make play mud by mixing 1 cup flour and 2 Tbsps. cocoa powder in bowl then slowly add 3⁄4 water.
- On a blank piece of paper, draw the blind man’s face.
- Tape the drawing on a wall, level with your head.
- Blindfold yourself, with the help of a friend or family member if needed.
- Ask a friend or family member to spin you seven times.
- Ask then to put your fingers into the bowl of play mud then try to smear mud on the blind man’s eyes as a re-enactment of today’s miracle performed by Jesus.
- If you are playing with a sibling you can each take a turn and see who comes closest to the eyes.
- Have fun and remember to wash your hands afterwards!
This week’s craft is also about making mud, yay! Here is a recipe for “Mud” Playdough.
Note:You will need to ask a grown up to help you with this craft because to requires cooking on a stove top.
2 cups flour
½ cup cocoa
2 ½ cups salt
5 Tbsps. oil(vegetable or canola)
1. Mix the dry ingredients
2. Add the water and oil.
3. Stir all the ingredients together and cook over low-medium heat.
4. Keep stirring (you’ll get your forearm workout for the day.). The mixture will start to thicken up and pull together. Keep going a little bit longer until it is no longer sticky when you squeeze a piece of the mixture between your fingers.
5. Once it’s no longer sticky, dump it out onto a clean surface.
6. While it is still warm (but not hot) knead it until it is smooth.
7. Cover with a damp cloth for about 20 minutes and then place inside a ziploc bag or a container with a lid. Leave the open until there is no longer any condensation. Seal and store in the fridge
