Jesus' Miracle of Loaves & Fish

Yesterday we did another Bible story with a craft.  We told the girls about the miracle of Jesus using 5 loaves of bread and 2 fish to feed 5000 people.  Then they made a craft to accompany the story:
 The girls glued blue tissue paper onto a bowl I drew in, and then added 2 construction paper fish.
After they glued 5 loaves of bread onto a plate I drew, they wrote numbers on the loaves (I had to draw dots for Sabrina).

This was a great project.  I saw the tissue paper fishbowl project and wanted to try that with the girls.  I decided to add a Biblical lesson to it and the girls, as always, LOVE hearing Robby tell them Bible stories.  We realized this was the first time we had taught them about a miracle performed by Jesus.  They seemed to understand what a "miracle" is and realized that only Jesus can perform miracles.
