Woven Desk Caddy

You might have to use your imagination here, but I thought this might be a useful reminder for the story of Joseph in Genesis Chapter 40 and onward.  I was thinking of the part in the story where Joseph hid a silver cup in his brother’s luggage.  Using grey or silver wool instead of the multicolour,  you could use this to remind the children of the story.  Follow this link here to find the instructions or click on the picture above.

Recycled pop bottle wind spinner

The word ‘wind’ or ‘winds’ is mentioned over one hundred times in Scripture, so there should be lots of passages you could use this craft for.  I have included a list of just the passages which have the word ‘wind’ in them.  There are more which mention ‘winds’.

This craft is a good one for teens and adults and perhaps older children.  Although a word of caution in that the bottles are slippery when you are holding them and trying to cut through them with an exacto or craft knife or scalpel, so perhaps this part of the preparation should be left to teens or adults.  They last for ages and make quite a colourful site spinning in the breeze.  You can of course use whatever plastic pop/soda/softdrink/fizzy drink bottles you have on hand, 600 ml, up to two litre.

Woven key rings

woven_key_ringsThere are multiple passages in the bible which mention the words ‘key’ or ‘keys’

These woven keyrings would be a good reminder of verses such as those found in Isaiah 22 and 33; Judges 3; 1 Chronicles 9; Matthew 16; Luke 11; and Revelation 1,3,9 and 20 (These are all Chapter numbers).  You can find it here or by clicking on the picture above.
