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.
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.
What a lovely reminder of the Bible Passage from John Chapter Eight verse 12
“When Jesus spoke again to
the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
It can also refer to Matthew 5:14
And this lovely verse from 2 Samuel 22:29
Lord, are my lamp; the Lord turns my darkness into light.”
And this one from Psalm 18:28
Lord, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light.”
and over Eighty references in the New Testament.
The cross of Christ is the most recognised symbol of Christianity and mentioned forty-six times in the New Testament. There are many cross crafts which I will add to this page as I find them.
Here’s a nice little pattern for a pony bead cross
Handmade cards and bookmarks can be used for any Bible passage you like!
You just need to supply lots of scrap materials in cardstock, paper, material etc, some glue and some pre-printed bible verses from your chosen passage.
Adults and teens can enjoy this activity.
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
