Wedding at Cana (John 2) | Make 2

 

The wedding at Cana miracle hinges on the collection of stone water jars of which this craft highlights. These empty contains give you a springboard for discussing how they can be filled.

Wedding at Cana (John 2) | Make 1

 

This is a classic craft for an ever popular story. It used a small window and a split pin to show the water changing into wine. When the transformation took place is unknown but that water was often added to wine is a staple fact of the time and region. This craft is quick and simple to do, it’s also a good craft for younger groups and the cutting is very forgiving – though I’d recommend preparing by removing the window in advance.

Christmas prompt cards

Advent is a great time to open those little doors and remove the chocolate or toy within, but as we do this why not add in one of these prompt cards? They number from the 1st to the 25th and follow the story of Christmas through characters and objects.

They also compliment into the advent candle wreath craft and the traditional 4 characters used to symbolize the candles on an advent ring.

Good Samaritan (Luke 10) | Make 2

 

This Good Samaritan storytelling aid combines the fun of a lift the flap book with the ease of a simple craft even younger kids can make. The best way to use this craft is to make a version in advance so you can show the children how it works and how it tells the story. For our international friends there is a version with no text on it. Good Samaritan (Luke 10) | Make 2

Good Samaritan (Luke 10) | Make 1

 

The good Samaritan is, in many respects, a lesson in empathy and there is no easier way to teach empathy that by having the children act out the story. This little theater craft allows just that – minus the robbers and violence. It is a craft best done in small groups as there is quite a lot of cutting to do.

This is JWL’s second bible theater and you can use them interchangeably if you want to – the other was attached to the Andrew lesson.

Young Jesus (Luke 2) | Make 2

 

Layered image crafts are simple and yet lovely keepsake crafts. This one for Young Jesus shows him in the temple talking to the crowd. This moment is really significant, because here Jesus is showing us that while he is still almost 2 decades away from his main ministry time his earthly relationship with God as his father is not something that just develops overnight.

John the Baptist (Matthew 3) | Make 2

 

This is a more traditional craft for John the Baptist, it gives the wonderful illusion of water by using baking parchment to give the semi transparent quality of the river. It’s a really simple craft for any age and there are templates with and without the words showing for groups using different translations. John the Baptist (Matthew 3) | Make 2
