Paralyzed Man & Mat Craft

This is one of my favorite crafts that we’ve made so far.  It’s cute and interactive!  The paralyzed man can either lie down on his mat or stand up and carry it, like the man did after Jesus healed him.  Thank you to Faith Sprouts for the original idea! Materials: Printed Paralyzed Man template (download […]

Joseph in the Well Game

This post contains affiliate links. First, I’ll tell you how I made the little wooden Joseph figure above, and then we’ll talk about how to play the game.  If you give yourself a week or two to make the figure, you won’t feel rushed trying to get it done right before the lesson.  Thank you […]

Family Necklace Craft

The kids made necklaces for one of our lessons on families.  I bought a wide variety of beads and asked them to pick one bead that would represent each member of their family.  Some of them wanted more beads than that, so we went along with it and let them add to the necklace.  One […]

Family Memory Game

For one of our lessons on families, I made this matching game which features many different families.  It was difficult to find flashcards which represented many different types of families, and in the end I thought this was my best option.  Some of the photos look a bit outdated, but overall I think they look […]

Father’s Day Card

One of the easiest crafts you can do for Father’s Day is to let your kids decorate their own cards.  I just get large packs of plain cards and let the kids go to town decorating.  Here are a couple that my kids made for their daddy. You can always give the kids stickers, stencils […]

Mother’s Day Treat Bag

For our Mother’s Day lesson, the kids put together treat bags to give their mothers.  Each child got a quart-size ziploc and picked out snacks which were lined up buffet-style on a table.  The treat bag accompanied the Mother’s Day card that each child made. Here’s the list of what we had, but next year […]

Pin the Flower on Mom Game

For our lesson on Mother’s Day, we played a game called Pin the Flower on Mom.  Sort of like we’re pinning a corsage on her shirt.  I used an old poster board to draw a picture of a mom (please don’t ask me why her hair looks like that) and then we put it on […]

Jesus & Peter Walk on Water Craft

For our lesson about faith, with Jesus and Peter walking on water, I planned this collage for the kids to make during craft time.  It’s a little finicky, but it’s very open-ended in terms of kids making it as simple or fancy as they like.  Some of our kids chose to draw the water and […]

Always Make Time for God Clock Craft

We made this craft for a lesson on stewardship and how we spend our time.  It’s a bit labor-intensive, so leave plenty of time.  Also, you will want to have several adults/teens available, as some kids will need significant help.  I printed the circles in several different colors to give the kids lots of options […]

Body of Christ Puzzle

This post contains an affiliate link. As a sort of extra bonus activity for our lesson on the Body of Christ, we had a body floor puzzle for the kids to assemble together.  It is from Melissa and Doug, so it’s great quality and it’s available on Amazon. It will take some time to put […]
