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