Flat Jesus is inspired by a national school project called Flat Stanley, based off a book written by Jeff Brown. Just as Flat Stanley has helped children with literacy and geography, Flat Jesus helps children stay plugged into the biblical message we have been sharing with them all year.
The Flat Jesus Project is simple: each student gets their own paper cutout of Jesus to take with them on their summer adventures. Encourage them to take photos of their Jesus as he walks with them—helping them keep Jesus at the forefront of their minds. As natural questions and discussions come up, parents will have new talking points to help facilitate summer faith development.
