The Sycamore Tree in Bible Crafts
This tree project helps the children remember the story and how Zacchaeus wanted to see Jesus so badly that he was willing.
Teach the song "Zacchaeus Was a Wee Little Man" to the students. Sing it to the students. Have them sing along. Provide the words either on the board or on handout sheets. Sing the song together until they grasp the rhythm and words. Add actions to the song. Use your hand to indicate a smaller person. Mimic climbing a tree and looking out over the crowd. Point to Jesus. Act surprised when Jesus speaks. Mimic climbing down and going with Jesus. On the next part, mimic giving away money with a big smile. Ask children what actions they would add as you sing the song.
