Barbell Snack

I saw this treat on Pinterest and had to find a way to incorporate it into one of our lessons.  It’s perfect for Father’s Day or any lesson where you’re trying to emphasize strength (ie: being strong in the Lord, Samson’s strength, etc.)  Thank you to CandiQuik for the original idea! Ingredients: Keebler Fudge Stripes […]

Pretzel Cross Snack

This snack was very quick and easy to make.  You could also glam it up by sprinkling the almond bark with sprinkles.  I found the original idea on Pinterest! Ingredients: Pretzel rods White almond bark Directions: Line a large jellyroll pan with waxed paper. Melt a few squares of almond bark in microwave-safe bowl, according […]

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 […]

Father’s Day Snack Gift

For Father’s Day we decided on a very simple gift for the fathers.  I bought some meat sticks and a variety of small candy bars for the children to choose from to give their fathers. All you have to do is cut a short length of ribbon to tie them together and the kids can […]

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 […]

Wheat Bundle Snack

Joseph’s Colorful Coat Cookie

This post contains an affiliate link. 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 […]

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 […]

Cheese & Cracker Family Snack

For our lesson on Families (featuring the story of Adam & Eve), I had a hard time coming up with a snack.  Eventually I found this snack at Cute Creative and Fun!  It’s simple, cute, healthy (and quite frankly, I was tired of looking for the perfect idea). Ingredients: Block of cheese (I used a […]

Skittles Tithe Demo

For our lesson on Stewardship & Treasure, we did this easy demonstration to give kids a good visual for how much their tithe really is. Materials: Lg. bag of Skittles Med./lg. bowl Small bowl Med./lg. spoon Napkins Directions: Review with the children what tithing is, and how much it is.  Tell them you’re going to […]

Red & Green Answer Sticks

I made these answer sticks for the kids to use for a variety of activities in the classroom.  They can be used to answer yes/no, right/wrong, good/bad questions. One side is red and one green, with a nice sturdy handle for them to hang onto.  I tried laminating the thicker card stock, but that was […]

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!
