Father’s Day Bible Craft Shows Appreciation for Dad

Fun Bible Craft can be Used on Father’s Day

Every year in May we celebrate Mother’s Day with cards and flowers and lunches out. We spend the day thanking and pampering mom. Then in June, Father’s Day comes, but honestly:  Most of us don’t make as big a deal about Dad!  Sure, we get him a card and maybe a new tie, but we really don’t engage in all the fanfare we do for Mom. This Father’s Day craft will make sure Dad gets the appreciation he deserves!

Dad’s Footsteps Father’s Day Craft

This craft is based on Psalm 37:23: “The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, and he delights in His way.”

You will need the following supplies:

  • A picture of each child
  • Large sheets of white paper
  • Tempera paint
  • Craft sponges
  • Baby wipes
  • A laminator, if available

Preparations for the Father’s Day Craft

This craft can easily be done in one class, but you can make it even more special by planning ahead a little. A week or two before you plan to do it, take a picture of each child in your class and print it out at home. Also, print out Psalm 37:23, as well as the following poem:

Dear Daddy,

In all the things I try to do

I try to do them just like you.

I’m watching every move you make

And trying to take each step you take

Although right now I’m sort of small,

When I’m with you I feel ten feet tall!

Like you, I want to be brave and smart,

‘Cause I love you, Daddy, with all my heart.

When I am older, I’ll be so glad,

If I grow up to be…

Just like Dad!

– Author Unknown

            Cut the photos into oval shapes and paste them at the top center of each paper. Paste the poem in the center underneath it. Now you’re ready to start!

Instructions for your Students

On Father’s Day, call the kids up one or two at a time. Take off their socks and shoes, and paint both their feet with the sponge brushes.(Get ready for giggles!) Slowly help them stand up so that one foot is on each side of the poem. Use the baby wipes to clean up, and paste the papers with Psalm 37:23 across the bottom of the paper. You could also have them sign their names, if they are able.

After the papers dry, laminate them (if you can) so that Dad can enjoy this special Father’s Day keepsake for years to come!

Fruit of the Spirit Bible Crafts for Sunday School

The Bible tells us in Galatians 5:22-23: But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law ( NKJV). Teaching the fruit of the Spirit to your Sunday school class is a great way to help kids understand the importance of living out their Christian faith. It’s also a fun lesson to teach, because there are a variety of fun (and tasty!) crafts you can do to reinforce the lesson. Whether you have a large or small class, older kids or preschoolers, these Bible craft ideas for the fruit of the Spirit will keep hands busy and hearts full of the important truths they have learned.

Fruits of the Spirit

Fruit of the Spirit Fruit-Stamps

For this craft you will need some brightly colored tempera paints, a variety of fruit cut in half(avoid citrus or very juicy fruits), and large sheets of paper. Let the kids dip the fruit halves into the paint, then stamp them onto their papers. When they’re dry, write each fruit of the Spirit under the stampings. Don’t forget some baby wipes for messy fingers!
Fun with Fruit Loops

Fruit Loops are a fun and easy tool for teaching the fruit of the Spirit to younger kids. One craft idea is spelling out one of the fruits(i.e., “Joy”)using Fruit Loops. Use some construction paper and write out the word in block letters. Place some drops of glue in the letters and let the kids glue the fruit loops in place until the letters are full.

Another option is to make necklaces focusing on the particular fruit of the Spirit  you are learning about that week  For this craft you will need some letter beads(you can find them in the jewelry making section of your local craft store), yarn, and Fruit Loops.. String the Fruit Loops and beads on the yarn, either placing the letters all together in the center of the necklace, or spacing them with Fruit Loops in between. In addition to being fun, this craft also helps develop fine motor skills!

The best part about using Fruit Loops? Snack time is covered too!

Fruit of the Spirit Salad

            Fruit of the Spirit Salad is a delicious treat that lets kids put their love into action. This craft requires a little prep work at home and is best for older kids. You will need the following supplies: paper bowls, markers, some cut-up fruit (apples, bananas, and strawberries work well),1- ½ c. whipped topping, ¼ c. vanilla pudding, a large mixing bowl, a whisk, a serving spoon, and plastic wrap

Help the kids write “The Fruit of the Spirit is Love” around the outside of the bowls and decorate them with the markers and maybe even some stickers. In the mixing bowl, combine the whipped topping and pudding. You can pass it around and let the kids take turns mixing if you feel brave! Then combine the mixture with the fruit, spoon into the kids’ bowls, and cover with plastic wrap. Tell them to take their salad home, and “share their fruit” with someone they love!

These crafts are fun and easy, but the best way to teach our students is by example. While preparing these fruit of the Spirit crafts, take some time to meditate on Galatians 5:22-23. Ask God to show you which fruit could use some cultivating in your own life, and then get growing!

We also have fruit of the spirit coloring pages, be sure to check them out!


10 Commandments Craft Helps Kids Memorize

The 10 Commandments are among the verses every parent wants their children to memorize.  But memorization should be fun!  This quick craft for the 10 Commandments will help your Sunday school kids memorize while feeling all the while that they‘re simply enjoying an art project.  For starters, use this kid-friendly version of the 10 Commandments that will be easier for them to remember:

10 Commandments Bible Craft Helps Kids with Memorization

1.  Honor the Lord your God

2. Don’t worship anything but God

3. Use God’s name with respect

4. Remember the Sabbath day

5. Honor your parents

6. Don’t kill people

7. Be faithful to the person you marry

8. Don’t steal

9. Don’t lie

10. Don’t be jealous of other people

10 Commandments Bookmark Craft

This craft will provide kids with the perfect bookmark, something they can use at home to keep the 10 Commandments in front of them often!

The materials you’ll need include the following:  poster board or thick construction paper (light colored works best), yarn, black fine-tip markers, gray crayons, and a hole punch.

Instructions for Making the Craft

  1. Fold the paper in half and cut it into two tablet shaped pieces, rounded on the top.  On the first, write, “The 10 Commandments”, or “God’s Rules”, at the top, but leave some space to punch a hole.
  2. Have the kids write five commandments on each tablet, if they are able.
  3. When they are finished, tell them to lightly color over both the front and back of the tablets with the gray crayons.
  4. Punch a hole in the top of each tablet, and cut two pieces of yarn for each child. Knot one piece of yarn through each hole, then tie them together at the top. This way, the bookmark can “straddle” the pages with the yarn sticking out of the Bible.
  5. Help the children find the 10 Commandments in Exodus 20 and put their bookmarks in place!

This craft is great for memorizing the 10 Commandments, because not only do kids write them out (a great way to memorize), but it shows them where to find the verses in the Bible on their own! Encourage them to read the 10 Commandments on their own every day. They will love being able to find it all by themselves.

3 Bible Crafts Your Students Will Love!

Bible story crafts serve as cues to trigger a child’s memory and bring back every detail of the Bible story it represents.  Whenever a  child looks at that craft, the entire Bible story will unfold in their minds as vividly as it did on the day they first heard it. 

Not only do Bible story crafts serve as reminder to reinforce the message in the story, but they give the children the sense of creativity and accomplishment that they look forward to and enjoy.

While many Bible story crafts have stood the test of time and are still of value in reinforcing the meaning of these stories, it’s always refreshing to come up with new and inventive ideas that excite the children, are easy to construct, and prove to be of lasting value.  The  Bible stories listed below are among the children’s favorites.

1. The Christmas story

2. The Easter story

3. The story of Noah’s Ark


The Christmas Story

For the Christmas story, “The Babe In the Manger,” craft is so small it can be carried in the palm of a child’s hand, and since it is non-perishable, it can be packed away with the Christmas decorations and used year after year.  

You will need: 

  • One paper cup-cake liner for each child (while cup-cake liners  come in pastel colors, they also come in silver which is the most appropriate for a Christmas decoration.)    
  • Straw  (small packages of straw, to be used for decorative purposes, are available in the crafts department of stores like Wal-Mart, Kmart or Target.)
  • One can of white Play-Dough 
  • One small piece of white fabric  (this will be used as a swaddling cloth.  Any scrap of white fabric will do and a piece about the size of a Post-It-Note (3”x3”) will work. In a pinch, a piece of white Kleenex will do the job. 


  1. Fill the cup- cake wrapper with straw
  2. Make the head and body of a baby with white Play Dough
  3. Wrap the baby in the piece of white cloth
  4. Lay the Baby on the straw
  5. This craft of the “Babe in the manger” will serve as a reminder of the Christmas story for many years.    

The Easter Story

Eggs are a symbol of rebirth or Christ coming back to life after death.  Most children have dyed eggs so many times the novelty has worn off, but they will love decorating chocolate eggs with a coconut filling.  

You will need:

  • 3 miniature chocolate eggs for each child  (These eggs are about two inches long and usually come with a colored foil wrapper.)
  • Several small tubes of white and colored icing for decorating 
  • Jelly beans
  • Small candies shaped like crosses, bunny rabbits, chicks, flowers, hearts or any other symbols of Easter
  • Baskets for the eggs or small paper plates. 
  • Green cellophane straw (Easter basket excelsior) or a paper napkin. 


  1. Remove the foil wrappers from the eggs.
  2. Decorate the first egg with jelly beans using the icing to hold them in place.
  3. Decorate the second egg with the small candy crosses.  If crosses are not available, decorate by making crosses with icing. 
  4. Decorate the third eggs with symbols of love using candy hearts flowers etc.   (If these candies or not available, use the icing to make these symbols.)
  5. Place the green excelsior in the basket or on the plate.  
  6. Place the eggs in the basket. 
  7. While the chocolate eggs are perishable, the basket is not and it can be saved and used as a reminder year after year. 

Noah’s Ark

This is a craft that children will love, and since it floats, their enjoyment of it is doubled.  It will require a generous supply of Styrofoam egg cartons, so it might be wise to ask parents to save them for you.          

bible craftYou will need:

  • 1 egg carton for each child
  • Construction paper
  • Scotch tape, stapler or string
  • 1 large package of animal crackers
  • Black ink marker
  • Large roasting pan  


  1. Cover the lid of the egg carton, inside and out, with construction paper. (Since most glue and paint will not adhere to Styrofoam, the construction paper must be attached with tape, staples or with string threaded through small holes.  When making holes in the egg carton, be sure they are above the water line or the ark will sink.)  
  2. Decorate the lid as if it were Noah’s Ark.
  3. Fill each egg cup with 2 animal crackers of the same kind.   
  4. Fill a roasting pan with water.
  5. Let each child take a turn floating his ark in the water.  


Older children may want room on the arc for Noah, his family and their supplies.  This can be done by attaching another egg carton to the first. It should be decorated to match the first one, and the holes for the string used to tie the egg cartons together, should be above water level.  

Save for a rainy day

While this craft cannot be packed away with holiday decorations, keep it in a convenient spot, so it can make an appearance on any rainy day and give the child hours of pleasure and many reminders of the story of Noah’s Ark.

Bible story crafts keep these narratives alive for the children and help them to recall the meaning of each story.
