A collection of Owl crafts

The Owl is mentioned 17 times in the Old Testament, with the verse from Isaiah 34:15 being a good example.

“The owl will nest there and lay eggs, she will hatch them, and care for her young under the shadow of her wings; there also the falcons will gather, each with its mate.”

DIY Leather sandals

diy-leather-sandals-399x599

This is a cute craft from Dollar Store crafts blog and found here.  Surprisingly the term appears twenty-five times in Scripture.  This would be a good craft for older teens and adults and requires some leather scraps, a pair of thongs (flip-flops), and some strong glue.

Matthew 3:11

I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.

Exodus 3:5

Do not come any closer,” God said. “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground.

A new Creation: Butterfly whisk

whisk-butterfly-580x580

The butterfly is used as a symbol of the new life we have in Christ.

This butterfly made from a simple kitchen whisk is a lovely reminder of the change from the old to the new, as described in

1 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!

Christmas story reminders

I found this beautiful idea on pinterest. 

It comes from the following website:  http://www.trusper.com/tips/Kids-Christmas-Party-Ideas/7120444

And is a wonderful way to help kids remember the Christmas story.

All you need are red and or green “M&M” brand lollies, bags you can seal (zip-loc or staple them shut) and the poem reproduced.

Here’s the photo and poem which goes along with it.  I’ve made it large so you can see the words of the poem.

Matthew Chapter One and Luke Chapters One and Two relate the story of the birth of Jesus.

Letter Mosaics “J” for Jesus

This one is a very simple craft for younger children but it can also be adapted to suit teens

Draw the letter ‘J’ in large bubble writing on a piece of card, and have the children paste coloured pieces of paper inside the lines, making a mosaic craft.  This “J’ could help them remember a bible teaching about Jesus.

Extension:

Use bubble writing to make a word “Jesus” or phrase “Jesus died for me”

For older children:

Instead of paper on card, use the same technique with mosaic tile pieces (old tile, crockery, glass) on pieces of wood or strong board.
