Bible crafts for kids

Here are two Bible Crafts for kids that will help you learn about the book.

Memorization Scroll

Memorizing Scripture can be fun! Let's write a verse on some old looking paper then put it in a pot. You can tell your children about the Dead Sea Scrolls. The scrolls were found by Bedouin shepherds and archaeologists (according to Wikipedia). But unlike the scrolls in the caves of Qumran, your child will want to look at their scroll every day. So they can remember the verses.

Bible scroll

You will need;
For Scroll

  • Brown paper lunch bag
  • Pens, markers, or pencils
  • Tape
  • 2 Plastic straws

For Container;

  • Small cardboard roll
  • White glue
  • Eye dropper
  • Water
  • Yellow and red food coloring
  • Paintbrush
  • Paper plate
write your message

Wad the paper lunch bag up and rip the sides so that it looks old.

Write a message on your lunch bag. A great idea is to write down a memory verse. Leave a top and bottom border.

young children can draw pictures

Younger children can draw a picture. Maybe something from a Bible story.

add straws

Tape the top and bottom on one side of the lunch bag to a straw. Cut the straw so that it measures about 6 ¾ inches. It will fit better in the pot after you cut it.

Do the same to the other straw.

roll your scroll

Roll the top and bottom to the center. You will be able to unroll it anytime you like. However, when you're ready to put it back in its pot below, remember to roll it back up.

To make the earthenware pot;

difference between paint with glue and without

The glue paint will look shiny like glaze that is used on pottery. The picture shows the difference. The first container is painted with the glue the second one is painted with washable paint.

make your paint

So put some white glue on a paper plate. Add about 18 drops of water using the eye dropper, so that the glue is thin like paint. Add 2 drops of red food coloring and 3 drops of yellow to the glue to turn it orange. 

mix together

Mix the food coloring and water in the glue.

paint the roll

With a paintbrush paint the glue on the cardboard roll. Let dry on a paper plate. To make it darker you can paint a second coat.

let the paint dry

When the pot is drying, some of the glue should roll down the cardboard roll and onto the paper plate. 

cut off the paper plate

After it dries, don't remove the cardboard roll from the paper plate. Instead, cut around the cardboard roll so that a piece of the paper plate covers one of the openings. 

add the scroll to the pot

Put your scroll inside the pot. 

 Books of the Bible

The Protestant Bible has 66 books, the Old Testament has 39 books and the New Testament has 27 books. Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus.... How can the kids remember them all! Without looking at the table of contents in the front of the book and text so small, how is it possible?

Here's something with lager text. Soon the kids will remember all the names of the books.

books of the Bible
