1. What did Zacchaeus do for a living? He was a tax collector.
2. Why did everyone not like him? He often took extra money and kept it for himself. He was dishonest.
3. Why could Zacchaeus not see Jesus? Because he was short.
4. What did he do so he could see Jesus? Climbed a tree.
5. Jesus taught Zacchaeus that what he did was wrong and to live in God’s way so what did Zacchaeus do? He gave half of his property to the poor and he would give back four times the amount he stole from others.

I Spy (Zacchaeus Sees Jesus)- This lighthearted game engages students with the story of Jesus and Zacchaeus. It could be played indoors, outdoors, or while traveling. (The Encyclopedia of Bible Games for Children’s Ministry, page 86).

Zacchaeus, Come Down!- Blow up balloon and tie it off. Remind the students that the people did not want Zacchaeus to be with Jesus and they grumbled. Using masking tape, mark spots on the floor that the student must stand on. Have one student stand on each marker and tell the students that they must stay where they are standing (they cannot move their feet) and they have to keep Zacchaeus (the balloon) from touching the floor. The teacher starts the game by saying, “Zacchaeus, Come Down!” and tosses the balloon up high in the air for the students who must try to keep Zacchaeus from touching the ground using their hands.

Here is a cute craft I found to help little ones learn the Sign of the Cross.

Coloring:

osvparish.com- Try this coloring page and activity to help young children learn the Sign of the Cross. Kids sometimes get confused about which shoulder to touch first (in the Latin Rite it is the left; in the Eastern Rites it is opposite). One trick is to teach them to "cross over first" when making the Sign of the Cross. This works when using the right hand in the Latin style.
