Great Ideas: Jesus Chair

Jesus Chair

The students in fifth grade created a Jesus chair. The core of our school is Jesus, and the chair was made as a visible reminder that he is always present in our midst. A large paper cut-out of a human figure was placed on the chair. Students placed their photos with a favorite quote on the figure during the school year. The arms of the figure fit snuggly under the rails on the wooden chair as Jesus holds his children tightly, always guarding and guiding.
