Christian Mother's Day crafts are great for Sunday school. Kids can make a quick craft to give to their mom or learn about some mothers in the Bible.
The crafts are quick and easy to make. In no time, the kids will have cute gifts that mom will love.
In the Bible, we are told to honor our father and mother. (Exodus 20:12, Deuteronomy 5:16, Ephesians 6:2)
Before you do this craft, have your class brainstorm ways that they could honor their mother. Here are some ideas;
PS, you could use this craft for Father's Day or for anyone who you want to honor.
On the white construction paper write, “Honoring you by” then make a line. If you have preschoolers, you could have the words pre-written. Then have them draw a picture.
Use the red or pink paper to make hearts for the corners of the paper.
Cut a strip of paper 1 by 7 inches. Fold the strip in half. Then in half again. Do it one more time. Unfold.
Now fold back and forth on the fold lines. Draw a heart shape on the square. When you cut the heart, don't cut all the folded sides off. You want the hearts to be connected. Glue the hearts below the words on the paper.
When I think of the word honor, I think of kings and queens. Why not treat your mom like a queen on Mother's Day.
Cut a 4 by 3 inch rectangle from yellow paper. Fold back and forth.
Cut a “C” shape on each side of the fold, but be sure to leave some of the fold intact. Open up and you should have a crown shape.
Cut a 9 by 6 inch rectangle from blue paper. Glue the crown to the top corner.
Decorate the crown with gems and Washa tape. You could also use glitter.
Next to the crown write, “Queen for a Day.” Give the certificate to your mom and make her feel like royalty.
Proverbs 31:28 says that her children rise up and call her blessed.
For each flower, cut two 4 inch squares from the same color of construction paper. Fold the square in half. Then in half the other way. Draw a round shape that looks something like a thumb.
Cut on your lines but leave enough of the fold, so the petals stay together.
Unfold, you should have a flower shape. Do the same with the other square. Place the two squares together so that you can see eight pedals. Make two more flowers.
Break one of the green pipe cleaners in half. Poke the end of the pipe cleaner in the center of the flower. An easy way is to poke a hole first with a pen. Twist the end of the pipe cleaner in a circle to secure. Do the same with the other flowers.
You will have two short flowers and one taller one. You might want to make the longer stem shorter by making a loop at the end. Also attach the two smaller flowers to the sides just above the loop.
Cut a 9 by 6 inch rectangle from paper. Fold a bottom corner up so that it is approximately 1 inch from the top.
Fold the other side over the first so that there is a point at one end. You should have a cone shape. Staple the point to secure.
Write, “Blessed” on the cone. Add the flowers to the cone. Then give to your mom.
Did you know that there are mothers mentioned in the Bible? Here are some crafts that you can use when you are learning about special moms.
This craft with help your Sunday school class remember eight women mentioned in the Bible.
Learn about Eve, Sarah Abraham's wife, Rebekah, Leah, Rachel, Hannah, Elizabeth John's mother, and Mary the mother of Jesus.
Cut around the outside square.
Fold in half and then in half again. Then unfold.
Turn over so that the words are next to the table, fold corner to corner.
Turn over again and fold the corners to the center. Cut between the names of the two mothers that are attached to the fold. An example is to cut between Eve and Sarah. Slip your fingers into the slots.
You could use this craft for anytime you are talking about a mother in the Bible.
Cut a 6 1/2 by 4 inch rectangle from your favorite color. From the same color also cut two 2 1/4 by 1 inch rectangles for the arms.
From white or flesh colored paper, cut a 2 1/4 inch circle for the head. Also, cut four 1 by 1/2 inch half circles for the hands and feet. (Or you could use brown or black for shoes)
Glue the head 3/4 inches from the top of the larger rectangle.
Fold the top down over the top of the circle. Glue in place. Draw a face on the circle.
Pinch the rectangle in half. Draw a line.
Cut off the corner about 1 inch.
Glue one of the half circles to the smaller rectangle. Trim so that the circle does not extend from the sides of the rectangle. Do the same with the other half circle and rectangle. Glue the other two half circles to the center of the larger rectangle for feet.
Glue the rectangles to the sides of the larger rectangle. The hands will overlap some.
Cut a 1 1/2 inch circle for the head of the baby.
Cut a 3 1/2 by 3 inch rectangle for the blanket.
Place the circle on one corner of the blanket piece and glue.
Fold the bottom to the center. Then fold the sides over. Add a face to the circle.
Place the baby under the arms of the mother.
