Jacobs Ladder

Posted on Updated on

“11 When he reached a certain place, he stopped for the night because the sun had set. Taking one of the stones there, he put it under his head and lay down to sleep. 12 He had a dream in which he saw a stairway resting on the earth, with its top reaching to heaven, and the angels of God were ascending and descending on it. 13 There above it stood the Lord, and he said: “I am the Lord, the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac. I will give you and your descendants the land on which you are lying. 14 Your descendants will be like the dust of the earth, and you will spread out to the west and to the east, to the north and to the south. All peoples on earth will be blessed through you and your offspring. 15 I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.” Genesis 28:11-15

God kept His promises that He gave to Abraham. God kept His promises that He gave to Isaac. And here we see a reminder of the kept promises He gave to Jacob in a dream.

Seek Ye First

Posted on Updated on

Worrying about our needs is not trusting God. We want our kiddos to not worry about their needs, but rather trust God to take care of them.

Make sure you clarify to the kiddos what those needs are. You find them in the context of the passage. “…as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on.” Matthew 6:25 We don’t want our kids going home thinking God promises to get them a new Xbox 🙂

“But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. “ Matthew 6:33

Seek Ye First

Instructions

  1. Paint a paper plate blue.
  2. Print out the templates. (Template)
  3. Trace the templates onto construction paper.
  4. Glue on the nest to the paper plate.
  5. Then decorate the nest with strips of construction paper, hay, craft feathers, small leaves, or string.
  6. Next glue on the eggs. As many as you choose.
  7. Assemble the bird and then glue it on the nest.
  8. Finally glue on the branch to the paper plate.

If the kiddos choose to they can add paper flowers, leaves, or even tissue paper onto the tree branch.

The Twelve Spies Bookmark

Posted on Updated on

Trust. That is what ten of the spies lacked. They saw with their own eyes that the land was just as God had said it would be. They saw how God protected them and sustained them in the desert. Yet they focused on the difficulties of the situation.

We want our kiddos to be like Caleb. He saw the promise of God before him. He had total trust in God and in His promises. We should teach our kiddos to trust in God, even in the face of difficult obstacles and that is what this craft will remind them of every time they use it.

The Twelve Spies

Instructions

  1. Print out the templates onto colored paper or construction paper . (Template)
  2. Cut out the leaves and the grapes. You will need around 20 grapes.
  3. Cut out the Trust template.
  4. Glue the leaves to the Trust template. Then the grapes.
  5. Cut of any excess grape overhang so that there is a clean edge.
  6. Glue onto a piece of white card stock.
  7. Cut it out leaving a small border of cardstock.
  8. Then glue onto a piece of purple construction paper.
  9. Finally cut it out again leaving a small border of purple construction paper.

For a variation you could use different shades of purple for the grapes.

I have also included an “I Am The Vine” template as a variation to this craft.

Rainbow Covenant

Posted on Updated on

“3 The rainbow that I have put in the sky will be my sign to you and to every living creature on earth. It will remind you that I will keep this promise forever. 14 When I send clouds over the earth, and a rainbow appears in the sky, 15 I will remember my promise to you and to all other living creatures. Never again will I let flood waters destroy all life.” Genesis 9:13-15

This craft can be used to teach the story of Noah and to help reinforce the fact that God always keeps His promises.

To hang the cloud on a wall glue a piece of yarn in a loop to the back of the cloud.

Joseph’s Coat Of Many Colors Bookmark

Posted on Updated on

The story of Joseph is filled with many twists and turns. You have a young boy and God reveals to him that his family will one day bow down to him. This promise from God comes as a big surprise to his family and gives his brothers more of a reason to hate him. As we find out his brothers planning to kill him ultimately sell him off as a slave. What happened to Gods promise? Did He forget? God never abandoned Joseph and Gods promise to Joseph came true. God used Joseph to save the nation of Israel. God remembers His promises! God always keeps His promises! God never forgets His promises and that is exactly what kids will remember by doing this craft.

Coat Of Many Colors

The kids can stick it in their Bibles as a constant reminder that God always remembers His promises.

Instructions

  1. Print out the template. (Template)
  2. Color and cut out all the pieces of the template.
  3. Glue the coat piece onto the rectangular piece.
  4. Glue the assembled bookmark onto a piece of colored cardstock or construction paper.
  5. Cut the bookmark out of the cardstock or construction paper leaving a small border.

If you like you can also use glitter glue to make the bookmark sparkle.

Noahs Ark

Posted on Updated on

Noah’s ark is a favorite Bible story for many children, and this easy paper plate craft is a great way for kids to make a fun take home reminder of the lesson.

Noahs Ark

Instructions

  1. Print the template. (Template)
  2. Paint a paper plate blue.
  3. Color then cut out the rainbow and the ark. (I recommend you use crayons or color pencils. As you can see I used markers and the browns and black are really dark, especially on the  animals.)
  4. Glue the ark onto the plate.
  5. Finally glue the rainbow onto the plate. If you choose not to use the rainbow, you can paint a rainbow across the top edge of the plate instead.

Abraham Offers Isaac

Posted on Updated on

A person of faith walks ahead in obedience even though they do not see the outcome of the situation. Faith acts on the promises of God. Abraham did not know how Gods promise of many decedents would be fulfilled if he sacrificed Isaac, but he still obeyed God. He still trusted and had faith that God was going to keep His promises.

“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1

Abraham Offers Isaac

Instructions

  1. Print and cut out the template. (Template)
  2. Glue the template onto a sheet of construction paper. This will give support to the craft.
  3. Cut out the template. If you like you can leave a small border of construction paper.
  4. Color the legs, horns and face of the ram.
  5. Cut cotton balls into four pieces and glue them onto the rams body, tail and ears. If you like you could use small white craft pom poms.
