Jesus Calms the Storm Craft

I came up with this really simple craft to go with our lesson about Jesus calming the storm.  The kids had the option of making a storm scene with either paint or colored pencils. We made some lovely storm clouds with dark blue paint (I thought we had black and could mix it to make […]

Paper Snail Craft

I love how cute these little paper snails are!  And what’s even neater is that they remind us to be slow to speak and slow to get angry.  Don’t we all need that reminder? Younger kids will probably need help with some of the fine-motor skill tasks.  Thanks to Make and Takes for the original […]

Our Daily Bread Promise Box

This post contains an affiliate link. I try to bring faith discussions to the table when we’re having dinner.  Everyone is there and it seems like the kids are more willing to slow down and talk.  I bought the Our Daily Bread Promise Box.  It’s a small plastic loaf of bread with little Scripture cards […]

God’s Word is our Treasure Game

Here’s a fun activity that gets the kids looking up Bible verses.  Ask people ahead of time for their favorite Bible verse.  Then make up little slips like this, with treasure chest clip-art and the person’s name and favorite verse reference.  Find a box that looks like a treasure chest, or get one at the […]

Holy Spirit Lesson Intro

Joseph’s Colorful Coat Craft

When we did our lesson on Joseph, the theme was forgiveness.  Obviously Joseph had a lot of opportunity to practice forgiveness in his life!  For our craft, I quickly free-handed some jackets on paper (some kids chose to draw their own).  Then the kids got to have fun decorating their coats as colorfully as Joseph’s.  […]

Sword of the Spirit Group Craft

This is the craft we had planned for the older kids back when we did our Sword of the Spirit lesson.  They ran out of time and never got around to making it, so I finally did it myself.  I really wanted to see how it would turn out because I thought the idea was […]
