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 […]

God Loves My Family Craft

For one of our lessons on families, I developed this ultra-simple printable.  Kids can draw a picture of their own family and be reminded that God loves their family.  Click here to print it free for your own use. I wanted to keep it very open-ended because there are many families today whose makeup is […]

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 […]

Painting with Marshmallows

This isn’t so much an art project as it is an artistic method.  Let your class dip marshmallows in tempera paint and make a picture!  You can use mini, regular-size, and/or extra large marshmallows. Kids can either spell out a word or message, like above, or paint a scene from a story (rainbow for Noah’s […]
