You will need: Tea lights, tapers

Jesus walked alongside the two disciples and taught them on their journey.  Say thank you to God for someone who has walked alongside you or been a good teacher to you. Light a candle for them.

Scratch art prayers

You will need: scratch art sheets or shapes

When Jesus breaks the bread and shares it with them, the two disciples recognise who he is.  What do you need help to understand more clearly? Scratch off the darkness on the  surface to show the colour below and ask God to help you.

Planting new life

You will need: Seed Paper, pencils, instructions for planting seed paper (Click here)

When the disciples saw that Jesus was alive they were amazed and excited. Where would you like to see new life and new beginnings? Write a name or a situation on the seed paper and take it home and plant it.  As the seeds pray for new beginnings in that situation.
