We Are All God’s Children Craft

I love how this craft turned out!  Seeing all of the kids’ cute little handprints just sort of melts me heart.  🙂  We did this craft for one of our lessons on families, and while it can be a little finicky (especially with a large group), I think it is totally worth the results.  I […]

Jesus Calms the Storm Jello Snack

I made this snack for our lesson about when Jesus calmed the storm.  The small cups with lids came from Walmart in a package of twenty.  I made five or six small packages of blue Jello and evenly distributed it between the cups, then put them in the fridge to set up.  (Just follow the […]

Temple Snack

We made this really neat temple snack for our lesson about when twelve-year-old Jesus was left behind after the Passover festival.  I like that kids can get creative and use the “building blocks” to make their own version of the temple.  For this particular model I used pretzel “dipping sticks,” but pretzel rods or smaller […]

Four Friends & Paralyzed Man Teddy Graham Snack

For our lesson about the paralytic whose friends carried him to Jesus and lowered him through a hole in the roof to be healed, we made this cute and simple snack.  You will want to keep the frosting refrigerated until you’re ready to use it, otherwise it won’t be stiff enough to keep the Teddy […]

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 […]

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 […]

Joseph’s Colorful Coat Cookie

For our lesson about Families and Forgiveness, we learned about when Joseph’s brothers faked his death and sold him into slavery.  Each of the kids got to frost and decorate their own “colorful coat” cookie at snack time.  This is the T-Shirt Cookie Cutter I got from Amazon.  The […]

Photo Attendance Sticks

I am so in love with this method of keeping track of who is at Sunday School.  We use a clipboard with an actual attendance sheet too, but these photo sticks are so awesome!!!  If something could kill you with cuteness, I think these would. Materials: Camera Scissors Laminator & laminating pages Large craft sticks […]

Jesus Walks on Water Snack

This is the supremely easy snack we had for our lesson about faith, featuring the story of Jesus and Peter walking on water.  I saw the idea originally at Our Littlest Disciples. Just grab some graham crackers and break them in half.  Spread blue frosting on the cracker and place two Teddy Grahams standing up […]

Mom I Love You to Pieces Card

I found this card design on Pinterest and thought it would be a fun option for the kids to make this year.  The little ones will need help with the writing, but it also gives them the chance to tear pieces of paper and glue them on.  Yay — something they will excel at! Materials: […]

Fingerprint Bee Mother’s Day Card

I first saw this card design at craftymorning.com and thought it would be really fun to do this year for Mother’s Day.  It gets extra cuteness points for using a child’s fingerprints! Materials: Plain white card Colored card stock for flower petals Yellow card stock for middle of the flower Glue Yellow paint / washable […]

Spider Mini Pizzas

Okay, I think this is our last out-of-season Halloween post!  These little spider pizzas are a bit finicky to make, but lots of fun to eat!  They would be great if you’re doing some kind of fall outreach with families, when you have a little more time for involved activities like this one. Ingredients: English […]

Seashell Cross Craft

DIY Valentine’s Day Box

Here’s the Valentine’s Day box that the kids and I made a couple of years ago. My husband got a birthday gift from my mom in a cool holographic box that was the perfect size and shape for valentines. I set it aside so that we could use it for just that purpose. Here’s how […]

Duct Tape Clipboard

This is a fun craft to make if you need something to occupy the kids for a while, such as for VBS.  Plus it looks cool and it’s something practical that won’t just get tossed in the trash.  A little tip: One roll of duct tape is enough to cover two regular-sized clipboards. Materials: plain […]

Candy Flower Cupcakes

My 8-year-old helped me decorate these amazingly simple cupcakes for her birthday this year.  I thought they would be a fun snack for Sunday School, too! I simply made cupcakes with a boxed cake mix and frosted them with store-bought frosting.  I chose to make lemon cake with cream cheese icing, but feel free to […]
