Easy Isaiah Bible Crafts for Children's Church

by Karen & Grace Morris

The advent season is a great time to make Isaiah Bible crafts. Below you will find a manger, Christmas baubles, a tree of Jesse, and several other crafts. The sandals can remind children that those who bring good news are blessed. Your class can also make a picture for Isaiah 9:2.

Most of the Isaiah Bible crafts are easy enough for preschoolers to do. Some are just cut-and-paste projects. Make the activities even easier by pre-cutting the rectangles and circles before class.

The pictures will take you to the individual Isaiah Bible crafts.

Craft for Isaiah 7:14

Craft for Isaiah 7:14

Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. Isaiah 7:14 KJV

Note that sometimes Immanuel is spelled Emmanuel.

You will need;

  • Paper plate
  • Scissors
  • Brown construction paper
  • A piece of your favorite colored paper
  • White glue
Immanuel step 1

Fold the paper plate in half. From the top of the fold, measure 4 1/2 inches and draw a 3-inch line. Also, draw a line 1 1/2 from the rim.
Next, make the legs of the manger. Draw an angled line 3 inches long from the bottom of the fold. Measure 1 inch and draw another angled line 1 1/2 inches long. Draw a 3 1/2 line along the rim.

Immanuel step 2

Cut on your lines. Save the center that you cut off from the paper plate.

Immanuel step 3

To cover the manger with brown paper, cut two rectangles 7 by 4 inches.

Immanuel step 4

Fold one of the rectangles in half. Place the fold on the fold of the paper plate. Draw around the side and legs.

Immanuel step 5

Cut the shape out. Do the same with the other brown rectangle. Unfold the rectangles and paper plate.

Immanuel step 6

For the baby Jesus, use the center that you cut from the paper plate. Draw a 2-inch circle for the head and a 2 1/2 inch circle for the body. It will look something like a snowman.

Immanuel step 7

For the blanket, cut a 5-inch square from your favorite colored paper. Place the baby diagonally, so the head is at one corner.

Immanuel step 8

Fold the bottom corner up approximately 2 inches. Fold the sides over the baby. Glue the top corner so that it stay shut.

Immanuel step 9

Glue baby Jesus to the back of the paper plate at an angle. You want the baby to look like it is laying in a manger.

Glue one of the brown mangers over the baby and on the paper plate.

Immanuel step 11

Glue the last brown manger to the front of the paper plate. Write Immanuel on the rim.
