This craft can be done for different bible stories and adapted for each one. It is very versatile. It can be used for:

  •  Teaching children the story of Noah. (Genesis 6-9) You can add a branch to the birds mouth for this story.
  • Teaching children when Jesus was baptized. (Matthew 3)
  •  Or you can teach about who the Holy Spirit is.

If you have any other ideas about what other bible stories this craft can be applied to I would love to read them in the comments section.

Instructions

  1. Print out the templates. (Template)
  2. Cut out the body, the wings and the feathers.
  3. Snip each individual feather around the border of the feather. (For a nice effect, before snipping the feathers, crumble them up, then snip each individual feather around the border).
  4. Then glue the feathers onto each wing. (Eight on the bottom and six on the top).
  5. Glue the wings to the body.
  6. Finally color in the beak. If the child chooses he can draw on the feet.

Lazarus Raised From The Dead

Posted on Updated on

Mary and Martha went through the lose of their brother. But Jesus used this opportunity so that the faith of His disciples and Mary and Martha could be strengthened. So that they could see who Jesus truly was and so that He and the Father would be glorified. Their suffering was necessary so that they could learn that they could completely trust in Jesus.

God allows suffering in our life too. But He does this so we can learn to depend on Him; to put our faith and trust in Him. We should also learn to be thankful for these hard situations because many times this is when we learn and grow.

“For if He causes grief, then He will have compassion according to His abundant loving-kindness. For He does not afflict willingly or grieve the sons of men.” Lamentations 3:32-33
