Are you teaching kids at church? Use Sunday school crafts for kids to bring Christian concepts to holidays such as Valentine's Day or Halloween.
You will also find crafts for Christmas and Easter too. There are projects for fall, winter, and spring. By the way, each craft comes with a Bible verse, so teaching will be easy.
With easy to follow directions, and pictures too, you will have fun along with your class.
Also, most of the supplies can be found in the church supply cabinet, so they will save you money.
The seasonal crafts would make great bulletin board pictures to decorate your church. You could make these during Sunday school, children's church, or anytime you are teaching kids the Bible.
Here are some Bible crafts for fall and the harvest season. Think pumpkins and colorful leaves. There are projects for Luke 10:2, Hebrews 13:8, and Isaiah 40:8.
Halloween and Thanksgiving are fall holidays that kids can get excited about. It is always fun to get together with family and friends. Looking for the links, scroll to the holiday section.
Winter is a time of ice and snow. In both Psalm 51:7 and Isaiah 1:18 it mentions being whiter than snow. In Job 37:6 the Bible talks about God causing it to snow. Your Sunday school class can make some pictures to go along with the verses. These winter crafts would be great to make after Christmas.
Have fun making flowers and a butterfly to show biblical concepts for spring. Some verses on the page are Matthew 6:28, Psalms 103:15, and Matthew 13:3-32.
Easter is a spring holiday. See below for the pages related to this holiday.
Kids are always excited about the holidays, especially Christmas. Use their excitement to help teach about Jesus and the Bible. Some holidays are directly related to the Bible, such as Christmas and Easter.
Others, such as Thanksgiving and Valentine's Day, we can teach Christian concepts such as gratitude and love.
Kids love Christmas. They see pretty light displays and a decorated tree with gifts underneath. They are asked what they want Santa to bring them. As Sunday school teachers, we need to help them understand the real meaning.
Make nativity crafts to decorate a table, wall, or tree. Some are appropriate for preschoolers.
Make 3D ornaments that show your love for Jesus.
Kids like going on egg hunts and getting candy for Easter. Before the hunt or maybe after, let's make some Christian Easter crafts to remember that Jesus died and rose again.
An important day during the Easter celebration is Palm Sunday. Make a palm leaf, the road to Jerusalem, and a donkey.
Make cross crafts during Easter or anytime you are talking about the death of Jesus. There are six different crosses that you can make.
Send your friends an empty tomb card to show that Jesus is risen.
Because the Bible talks a lot about love, don't wait until Valentine's Day to do these crafts. Do the projects anytime you are talking about loving others or that God loves us.
Christian Valentine's Day crafts will show that God loves us and we should love others. You will find crafts for Bible verses such as John 3:16, 1 Corinthians 13, John 15:12, Ephesians 3:17 Matthew 22:37-39, and Proverbs 17:17.
What better time to tell your class that God is love but on Valentine's Day. This page covers the verses: John 3:16, Roman 5:5, Romans 5:8, and 1 John 4:9-11.
It is always nice to show gratitude.
Most of the thanksgiving crafts can be done during November. You will find projects for 1 Thessalonians 5:18, 2 Corinthians 9:15, and Psalm 100:4.
Not a very Christian holiday, but you could just give thanks for the harvest.
These pumpkin crafts would be great for a fall harvest festival or a Christian Halloween party.
The Bible teaches about different values such as love, forgiveness, giving thanks, and joy. Paul summarized the Christian values in the fruit of the spirit. (Galatians 5:22-23)
As Christians, we also believe certain ideas about God and the Bible.
One of the ideas that Christians believe in is the Trinity. The idea that God the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit are one.
Looking for more Bible crafts? You will find crafts for people in the Old and New Testament here. There are crafts for Adam, Noah, Abraham, David, and other Old Testament heroes. You will also find crafts for the creation story. The New Testament crafts center on Jesus, but there are other items too.
