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.

Instructions

  1. Print the template on card stock. (Template)

  4. Assemble the dove and handle: Glue the singular rectangular piece to the back of the dove. Then take the longer attachment piece and bend the solid lines creating creases. On the same longer attachment piece glue the two larger rectangles together. Finally glue the smaller rectangles to the rectangle on the back of the dove.
  5. Cut on the solid line on the main image.
  6. Stick the dove piece through the slit on the main image. The dove can now go up and down as if the holy spirit is descending on Christ.
