Loaves & Fish Sharing Craft

For our lesson featuring the boy who shared his loaves and fish, we did the very simple craft/coloring sheets above.  I talked with the kids about how the boy shared what he had, even though it didn’t seem like it would make a difference in feeding 5,000 people. I asked the kids what they could […]

Paper Snail Craft

Jesus’ Name Optical Illusion Craft

The older kids did this craft for VBS last summer.  It requires quite a bit of prep work and is complicated, so you’ll definitely have to plan ahead if you want to make it.  It looks so cool when it’s finished, though! Start by cutting some boards.  Ours measure 8 3/4″ L x 2 3/8″ […]

Kids can either spell out a word or message, like above, or paint a scene from a story (rainbow for Noah’s […]
