In The Wild Bible Crafts

Posted on Updated on

These are the crafts that can be used with the Lifeway’s In The Wild V.B.S. program. 

Although most Vacation Bible School curriculum programs provide or sell their own Bible crafts, many times they have nothing to do with the Bible story of the day or not much thought went into designing them in the first place.

My hope is that these crafts will help make planning your Vacation Bible School a little less stressful.

As they went along the road they came to some water; and the eunuch said, “Look! Water! What prevents me from being baptized?” 37 And Philip said, “If you believe with all your heart, you may.” And he answered and said, “I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.” 38 And he ordered the chariot to stop; and they both went down into the water, Philip as well as the eunuch, and he baptized him.” Acts 8:36-38

White Dove

Posted on Updated on

Dove

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.
