Faith The Size Of A Mustard Seed

Posted on

A mustard seed is incredibly small yet it is used by Christ to explain the power and importance of faith.

” 5 The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!” And the Lord said, “If you had faith like a mustard seed, you would say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and be planted in the sea’; and it would obey you.” Luke 17:5-6

“And He said to them, “Because of the littleness of your faith; for truly I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.” Matthew 17:20

Faith The Size Of A Mustard Seed

This craft can also be used for the parable of the mustard seed.

Instructions

  1. Print the template. (Template)
  2. Color the main image and the seed pods.
  3. Cut out the seed pods.
  4. Glue the seed pods onto the main image.
  5. Glue yellow beans onto the seed pods. You can also use black beans.

Give A Defense Shield

Posted on Updated on

This craft will remind your kids of the need of “always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence.” 1 Peter 3:15

Give A Defense Shield

Instructions

  1. Print the template. (Template) Print the larger shield template on colored card stock. Print the smaller shield piece, the cross, the verse, the handle and the word “defense” on colored construction paper. (For your younger kids I’ve included a fully assembled smaller shield which included all of the smaller pieces. This way all your kids have to do is color it in and then glue it onto the large shield piece.)
  2. Cut out all of the pieces.
  3. Glue the smaller shield onto the large shield.
  4. Next glue on the cross, then the word “defense” and finally the verse piece.
  5. To finish the craft, on the back glue on the handle.

Faith Comes By Hearing

Posted on Updated on

Children don’t understand everything they read in the Bible, but they should be taught the importance of reading the Bible at an early age. Teach them the importance of reading Scripture every day.  Let their lives be saturated by the Word Of God so they cultivate a habit of turning to the Bible for any question they might have.

“So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.” Romans 10:17

Suggestions

This craft can also be used for the story of Mary and Martha in Luke 10.

Faith Comes By Hearing

Instructions

  1. Print the templates. I have included three different sizes of ears. (Template)
  2. Color the head and the ears.
  3. Cut out all of the pieces.
  4. Glue the long rectangle pieces to each side of the head/hair piece.
  5. Wrap the band around your kids head. Once you have the desired length use a couple of paper clips or a piece of tape to hold the shape. Then add glue to set it in place.
  6. Fold back the square on each ear.
  7. Add glue to each square on each ear and with the band around the childs head stick the ears in place.

I have included templates for both boys and girls.

Gospel Cross

Posted on Updated on

This craft makes use of colors to help children understand the gospel message. The color association makes it easy for children to remember each part of the gospel.

Brown– God As The Creator
Yellow– God Is Holy
Black– Our Sin, Total Depravity, Fallen Nature
Red– Blood Of Jesus, His Perfect Sacrifice, Substitutionary Death
White– Repentance
Blue– Faith
Green– New Life, New Creation

Gospel Cross

 

Instructions

  1. Print out, onto a page of light gray cardstock, the cross template. (Template)
  2. Cut it out.
  3. Print pages three to nine onto colored construction paper or cardstock. (Each page is labeled according to color.) Or if you choose you can print out the pages on white paper and your kids can color them in by hand.
  4. Using paper clips place each square on the cross in place. (The paper clips will hold each square in place so you are left with the correct  spacing.)
  5. Glue each square in its place, one at a time.

Shield Of Faith

Posted on Updated on

“…in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.” Ephesians 6:16

Shield Of Faith

Instructions

  1. Print and cut out the templates. (Template)
  2. Trace the big template, the shield shape, onto a piece of white cardstock and onto a piece of either brown, grey, or black construction paper.
  3. Cut both traced images out and glue them together. One side will be white, this will be the back, and the other will have color. This will be the front.
  4. Cut up the smaller shield template into four individual parts. Trace two parts on one color of construction paper and the other two parts a different color.
  5. Glue them onto the colored side of the shield. Not the white side.
  6. Glue either the blank cross or the one with the word “FAITH” onto the shield. If your kiddos choose they can fill in the word “FAITH” with glitter glue, the same color they used to color in the word.
  7. Color the small holder. Fold twice where the diagonal lines meet the empty space.
  8. Add glue to the back of the diagonal lines. Glue it vertically to the back of the shield

Just as with the Sword Of The Spirit, you can also fashion a shield out of cardboard or poster board.

Armor Of God

Posted on Updated on

The armor of God described in the book of Ephesians is a popular theme for Sunday School lessons and Vacation Bible Schools. Kids not only like making the armor, but they enjoy putting it on and playing around with it.

This past week I decided to come up with my own version of the armor of God.  For the next six days I will be posting crafts on the complete armor of God. Each day will bring a different part of the armor. I’m sure your kiddos will love them.

Armor Of God

“10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil.” Ephesians 6:10-11

If you happen to have a Sunday School or Vacation Bible School armor of God theme and you wish to send me pics of your kiddos making or wearing the armor, I’d be glad to put them on my blog.
