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.

Wordless bracelet

This is a simple craft for children or teens which can also be a powerful witnessing tool.  It is also known as a ‘Salvation bracelet’.

Any colours can be used to fit in with the particular passage you are teaching.

Or for  the salvation message, specific colours should be used as illustrated by this photo of a salvation prayer colour chart from shineinthedark.org
