Bible-Themed Craft Ideas for Kids

I love providing hands-on and interactive learning experiences for my kids. When children do crafts, it promotes creativity, problem-solving, and other various developmental skills. It improves their chances of remembering what they learned and allows it to sow into their lives in a deeper way. This is why I love doing bible-themed crafts for my kids! Here are some really easy and fun crafts to do with your kids, that will also teach them different stories in the bible. You can also read the story as you are building each craft. I will also list some of the supplies you can buy right off of Amazon!

1. Paper Plate Noah's Ark: Have the children create a paper plate ark and cut out various animal shapes to place inside or use animal stickers to decorate the ark. You can also cut and draw a rainbow and use cotton balls on the bottom for clouds. This craft reminds kids of Noah's faith and obedience to God, emphasizing the importance of trust and following God's instructions.

2. Handprint Dove: Children can dip their hands in paint or trace their handprints on paper to create a dove. You can create a dove by drawing it white, adding a face, wings, and an olive branch. This craft symbolizes the Holy Spirit and can serve as a reminder that God's Spirit is always with them and guiding them.

3. Fishers of Men Mobile: Kids can create a mobile with the paper plates, made into a boat. Use the construction paper to cut-out fish shapes and attach strings to each one and loop them through holes on the paper boat. This craft represents Jesus calling his disciples to become fishers of men, teaching kids the value of spreading the good news and sharing their faith with others.

4. David and Goliath Stone Art: Let children decorate small stones with markers or paint to represent the stones David used to defeat Goliath. This craft teaches kids about the power of God and how He can help them overcome seemingly impossible challenges in their lives.

5. Joshua and Jericho Trumpets: Kids can decorate their construction paper and then roll up into a horn to create their own "trumpets." This craft symbolizes the story of Joshua and the Battle of Jericho, reminding children that God's power is greater than any obstacle they may face.

6. Fruit of the Spirit Bracelets: Provide colored beads representing each fruit of the Spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control). Children can string them on a bracelet, learning about the qualities that God wants to develop in their lives.

7. Armor of God Shield: Provide kids with cardboard cutouts shaped like shields for them to color and decorate with the different pieces of the armor of God (Ephesians 6:10-18). This craft reminds children of the spiritual armor that God provides to help them stand firm in their faith.

Each of these crafts engages children's creativity while helping them connect biblical stories and teachings to their own lives. They serve as visual reminders of important Biblical principles, encouraging children to explore their faith and apply it to their everyday experiences.
